Relax or play – or do a little of both. Lie on the beach at Lake Barkley, or spend a day on the lake – boating, jet-skiing, or fishing. (We’ve got some of the best catfish and crappie fishing in the entire United States!) Go hunting for whatever’s in-season, or spend an afternoon on one of our two, 18-hole golf courses. Explore the local forests on our hiking and mountain biking trails and catch a glimpse of the local wildlife.
Or take a stroll down historic Main Street. Lined with old-fashioned street lamps and quaint buildings, it’s a little like stepping back in time. Browse the town’s antique stores, and take home a piece of the past. And don’t leave without dining at one of our restaurants for a taste of the local flavor – or our award-winning country ham and BBQ.
