About Green River Lake
Spanning Multiple Counties

Green River Lake spans 8,210 acres in three counties of Kentucky. It is in between the cities of Campbellsville and Columbia, while Louisville is a little over 100 miles away.

The Louisville International Airport is under 115 miles away, and under 25 miles away are the Taylor Regional Hospital and the T. J. Health Columbia Hospital.

On and Around the Lake

The Green River Lake State Park is home to many attractions for visitors who enjoy the outdoors and want to experience the beautiful Kentucky area.

The park features an 18-hole miniature golf course, 28 miles of multi-use trails, a beach access area, a picnic area, and a playground.

The lake's marina has a restaurant, boat slips, as well as boat rentals. Anglers can expect to catch white bass, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, Kentucky bass, bluegill, crappie, and muskie on the water.

Boating is the most popular activity here, where boat owners can enjoy the shimmering waters, and visitors have the option of boat and jet ski rentals.

Explore Louisville

Louisville is a little over two hours away from Green River Lake and is a gold mine for interesting places to visit.

The top attraction here is the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. Baseball lovers will appreciate the historical aspects of this museum as well as gain an appreciation for the production of baseball bats and mitts.

The Kentucky Kingdom is a family-friendly amusement park featuring a Ferris wheel and roller coasters. Hurricane Bay is the attached water park with waterslides and wave pools.

Museum-lovers should visit the Mohammed Ali Center, dedicated to the Louisville native, or the Kentucky Derby Museum, focused on the longest continuously-running sporting event in the country.

Adults of age should make time for tours and tastings at the Angel’s Envy Distillery or the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience.
