Grayson Lake

Huntington District
Published Jan. 10, 2024

Located just seven miles south of Grayson, Kentucky on State Route 7, this Corps project encompasses 17,085 acres. The impounded waters of the Little Sandy River form the 1,510 acre, 20-mile long Grayson Lake.  Narrow and winding, the lake's scenic cliffs range from 30 to 200 feet high above the lake surface.  The magnificently sculptured cliffs have a smooth, contoured surface enhanced by centuries of weathering. 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers directly manages 643 acres at the dam site, which includes recreation facilities listed below.  A marina, operated by a private concessionaire, is located at the dam site. The Corps of Engineers operates an office and information center at the Damsite Recreation Area.  They may be contacted at (606) 474-5701 for information on water safety & shelter reservations or for tours of the Environmental Nature Study Field, Nature Trail, and Intake Structure.  For information on lake conditions you may call (606) 474-7476, 24 hours a day.
