Laurel River LakeWelcome to Laurel River Lake

The Nashville District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers welcomes you to Laurel River Lake.  Laurel River Lake, with its cliff-lined shores and quiet coves, is a favorite destination. The lake provides a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities for thousands of visitors each year.  Because of the temperate climate and relatively long recreation season, visitors have numerous activities from which to choose, including: fishing, camping, picnicking, boating, canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, diving and to relax at one of the deepest and cleanest lakes in Kentucky. Because of the lake's proximity to I-75 (20 minutes from Exit 25, 29, and 38) lakeside recreation can fit nicely into your other vacation plans.

Laurel River Lake belongs to you, but remember to use it gently so that you and others can enjoy it in the future.  Enjoy your visit by staying safe on the water and in the recreation areas.
