About Lake Barkley
Spanning Two States

Lake Barkley covers 57,000 acres, making it a massive lake with plenty of space and more choices for lake living. It was formed by the damming of the Cumberland River and flows into Tennessee.

It is connected with Kentucky Lake by a dam, which runs parallel for over 50 miles, and is separated by the Land Between the Lake National Recreation Area.

The Trigg County Hospital in Cadiz is the closest one on the Kentucky side, and the Barkley Regional Airport provides travel opportunities. The Nashville International Airport is also accessible from the area.

There are several grocery stores west of the lakes including Price Less IGA, Brewers Grocery, Kroger, and Food Giant.

Fun on the Water and the Shore

Boasting 1,000 miles of shoreline, Lake Barkley is one of the best lakes for exploring. Its wooded shores are the perfect backdrop for a day on the water.

You are likely to be paddling along with mallards, wood ducks, and other waterfowl. Bald eagles, lakeside deer, and a variety of birds can also be spotted.

The waters see a variety of watercraft, including pontoons, motorboats, jet skis, bass boats, kayaks, and canoes.

An angler will know Lake Barkley for its fishing. This lake is world-renowned for its bass, bluegill, crappie, catfish, and sauger.
