Groups Of People, large and small, Love the Lakes

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. 

This ain't no Disneyland

and that's what people really like about this place.

Cadiz, Kentucky. An American small town with some big appeal—especially for outdoors types and lake-lovers. 

Remember when strangers greeted you with a smile? ...

…and your parents were fine with you playing outside ’til after dark? 

Well… that’s this place

Prizer Point is a Great Family Kid-Friendly Place to Camp
Getting towed with a rope, Tubing on Lake Barkley

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.

What Has Fuzzy Antlers, Sugar Water and Lasers?

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.
