Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area is America’s 170,000-acre playground. Sandwiched between Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake, only about a 45-minute drive west of Clarksville, the park is a part of the National Forest System, set aside for recreation, wildlife conservation, hunting and fishing, and environmental education.
How to Get There
From Clarksville, take Highway 79 south about 24 miles to Dover. Following the signs to Land Between the Lakes, head north onto State Highway 461 and continue onto Woodlands Trace National Scenic Byway until you reach the South Welcome Station, which will be on your right.

What to Do
The possibilities are endless. If you’re an outdoors enthusiast, you may even be a little overwhelmed by all the options for fun in the fresh air! Here are just a few activities you can do at LBTL:
- Target shooting
Visitors can camp, check out the planetarium and observatory, and even drive through the Elk & Bison Prairie, where the animals graze freely across 700 acres. A vast system of hiking, biking, horseback riding, and water trails snakes through the pristine landscape, and you have the opportunity to see some of the 315 species that call the park home – gray foxes, white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, bobcats, box turtles, and hundreds of different varieties of birds. There’s so much to love you may find yourself wanting to help protect this special place. Join Friends of Land Between the Lakes to find out about all of the unique volunteer opportunities available!
