Welcome to Cadiz and Trigg County, eastern gateway…

to Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area and home to Lake Barkley State Resort Park. Just 90 minutes from Music City, Nashville, Tennessee, you’ll find Cadiz, Kentucky. Whether you’re longing for an old-fashioned, family vacation at the lake or something a little more sophisticated, you’ll find the perfect combination of rustic escapes and modern indulgences. From backwoods camping to quality hotels and a historic bed-and-breakfast, there’s something just for you.

Relax or play – or do a little of both. Lie on the beach at Lake Barkley, or spend a day on the lake – boating, jet-skiing, or fishing. (We’ve got some of the best catfish and crappie fishing in the entire United States!)  Go hunting for whatever’s in-season, or spend an afternoon on one of our two, 18-hole golf courses. Explore the local forests on our hiking and mountain biking trails and catch a glimpse of the local wildlife.

Or take a stroll down historic Main Street. Lined with old-fashioned street lamps and quaint buildings, it’s a little like stepping back in time. Browse the town’s antique stores, and take home a piece of the past. And don’t leave without dining at one of our restaurants for a taste of the local flavor – or our award-winning country ham and BBQ.
