Laurel River Lake

The Nashville District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers welcomes you to Laurel River Lake.  Laurel River Lake, with its cliff-lined shores and quiet coves, is a favorite destination. The lake provides a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities for thousands of visitors each year.  Because of the temperate climate and relatively long recreation season, visitors have numerous activities from which to choose, including: fishing, camping, picnicking, boating, canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, diving and to relax at one of the deepest and cleanest lakes in Kentucky. Because of the lake's proximity to I-75 (20 minutes from Exit 25, 29, and 38) lakeside recreation can fit nicely into your other vacation plans.

Since its impoundment the Forest Service and the Corps of Engineers have cooperated in the ongoing work of developing public recreation facilities on and around the lake. Today, most of the lake is administered by the Forest Service, London Ranger District, while the Corps of Engineers oversees the operation of Laurel River Dam and the recreation facilities at the dam site.

Laurel River Lake is located within the Daniel Boone National Forest which is managed for multiple uses.
