Land Between the Lakes Temporarily Opening Fenton Boat Launch Area


Land Between the LakesGolden Pond, KY – Beginning Thursday, March 1st, Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area will temporarily open the Fenton Camping Area and Boat Ramp and US68/KY80 west of the Woodlands Trace National Scenic Byway.

Use extreme caution while boating, as there could be debris in the water.  The entire area may be closed in the future depending on response to the damaged bridge.  For information about water safety on Kentucky Lake, contact the U.S. Coast Guard at 270.816.7627.
