IntroductionThis gorgeous area is a popular vacation spot that extends south from Kentucky into Tennessee. Encompassed by Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake, it has some 170,000 acres/69,000 hectares available for camping, bass fishing, and deer and turkey hunting. The state resort parks in the area—Kentucky Dam Village, Kenlake and Lake Barkley—are particularly nice, with cottages, marinas and golf courses. Stop at the Nature Center and Golden Pond Visitor Center, which has a multimedia theater and a planetarium. On the Tennessee side, you'll find Homeplace—an 1850s working farm that still utilizes 19th-century tools and techniques. Approximately 260 mi/420 km southwest of Lexington.
