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.

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. 

Bass, Crappie, Catfish...

They're All Hungry

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.
