Did you know tens of thousands of acres of water surround three
sides of Land Between The Lakes? Kentucky Lake borders LBL to
the west with Lake Barkley to the north and east. A
free-flowing canal connects the two bodies of water at the northern
entrance of LBL.
There are nearly two dozen lake access areas in Land Between The
Lakes with boat ramps and other facilities to suit your needs. These
ramps listed below begin with the north and head south.
