Cadiz, Kentucky. An American small town with some big appeal—especially for outdoors types and lake-lovers.
…and your parents were fine with you playing outside ’til after dark?
Well… that’s this place.
Here, kids swap their button-pushing, screen-time for jumping and swimming. Parents get to unwind, forget about the bills and reconnect—all while knowing the kids are both safe and not bored?
Now that’s quality family time.
Some favor Rustic. Some love Vintage. Some are drawn to “Modern.”
Whatever the feel you’re after for your next group gathering, the Lake Barkley region is home to the most unique event centers.
From professional and business to weddings to family reunions and conferences into the hundreds, there’s a place that can—not only accommodate your group—but give them a great experience to remember forever.
If you guessed Hyper-Laser-Elk, you’re wrong (close, but still wrong).
But at Land Between the Lakes, you can see real Elk —and real Bison, mesmerizing laser light shows, and hundreds of humming birds at the Nature Station. Pioneer Cabins straight out of the 1800s, kayaks, canoes, and rare wildlife are all here at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.
Of the 123,439 lakes in the United States*, Lake Barkley’s size ranks in the top 0.045%. That’s big—58,000 Acres Big—and big enough to host some of the best fishing in the nation, and small enough to still be one of fishing’s best kept secrets.
