Vacation Rentals in Kentucky Lake

Relax in a Waterfront Vacation Rental in Kentucky Lake

The main attraction in Kentucky Lake is well, the lake, so it's no surprise that many of the area's finest rental options are located along the shore. If you're into boating, fishing, kayaking, or swimming, you could go for a small cabin in the forest, or a much larger family-sized property. Either way, expect private moorings, large yards, and picnic space right by the water.

Stay in an Apartment with Great Access to the Recreation Area

The other main option for visitors to Kentucky Lake is something more compact like a mobile home. Mobile homes are available at the south end of the lake near Hazel and Dover, or along the western shore - providing easy access to the Land Between the Lakes.

Holiday in Kentucky Lake

Orientation

A Nature Lover's Paradise that was Made by Man

Kentucky Lake (around half of which is actually located in Tennessee) is America's largest man-made lake, having been created by the damming of the Tennessee River in the 1940s. Since then, it has become a fishing hub, with an amazing variety of species to catch, and offers hiking, camping and general outdoor fun.

Getting to Know the Kentucky Lake Region

The lake is a short drive northwest of Nashville. It has a long, snake-like shape, and a total coastline of some 2,000 miles - enough space for hundreds and hundreds of vacation rentals. There aren't many large towns in the region, just quaint villages and miles of unspoiled coastline.

How to Reach Kentucky Lake

If you're flying, the best option is to head to Nashville International Airport, then take a shuttle bus or rent a car to reach the Lake. Renting a car is advisable, with so much coastline to cover.

Activities in Kentucky Lake

A Superb Destination for Fishing

Kentucky Lake is among America's finest fishing locations. Expect to find both the lake teeming with crappie and bass, and even novices should be able to land a few.

An Excellent Outdoor Destination

The Land Between the Lakes is a magical place to hit the trails, whether you're on foot or on a mountain bike. You'll see wildflower meadows, idyllic coastline, and plenty of wildlife everywhere you roam.

A Great Water Sports Location

Whether you're into jet skis or water-skiing, lake swimming, or sailing, Kentucky Lake caters for all kinds of aquatic activities, and usually with fantastic weather.

Kentucky Lake provides vital flood protection for around 6 million acres of farmland and towns in the Tennessee, Ohio, and Mississippi valleys. So it's saved plenty of lives over the years.

Top 5 Things to Do in Kentucky Lake

1. Spend Some Time at Venture River Water Park

Western Kentucky's only water park, Venture River is a monster complex, with plenty of rides and other water-based attractions. When the heat gets too much, it's the only place for families to head.

2. Rent a Boat and Fish the Lake

Fishing is the number one activity at Kentucky Lake, and you can rent a boat of your own at places like Gilbertsville, Grand Rivers, and Aurora. But don't forget to rent some bait and tackle while you're at it.

3. Cycle the Central Hardwoods Scenic Trail

Located in the Land Between the Lakes Reservation, the Central Hardwoods Scenic Trail really lives up to its name. Only around 9 miles long, it's not a difficult cycle and every part is gorgeous.

4. Saddle up at Wrangler's Camp

Wrangler's Camp is the place to head for some traditional horseback riding. With 70 miles of trails fanning out from the camp, riding is an amazing way to see the nature reserve.

5. Visit the Homeplace 1850s Working Farm

The Kentucky Lake area is full of history, and the best place to find out about it is this "living history museum". It's an amazing insight into life before electricity, smartphones, and even running water.

Useful Information

Pick the Right Part of the Lake to Visit

One of the most important things to know about Kentucky Lake is its sheer size. The lake straddles Tennessee and Kentucky, and stretches for miles and miles from north to south. If you're into hiking or cycling, look at the northern part, close to the Land Between the Lakes. The south is ideal for fishing fans who want to get away from the crowds.

When to Visit Kentucky Lake

Picking the right time to go is also important. Mid-summer in the Kentucky Lake region is popular, but that heat isn't for everyone, and the crowds can spoil the scenery. The fall are mild and brings bonuses like beautiful foliage, as well as excellent conditions for some serious bass fishing.

Events that Visitors Won't Want to Miss

The area hosts some excellent events. For instance, Kenlake State Park has a massive 4th July celebration, while Grand Rivers is also a regular venue for events like the Labor Day Arts and Crafts Festival, or October's Hunter's Moon Festival.
