Land Between the Lakes, KY/TN – Power is out across Land Between the Lakes due to strong storms that moved through the area last night. Additional storms are predicted to take nearly the same path again today.
Those camping in Backcountry Areas are encouraged to leave before this next round of storms occur. Additional roads could become blocked or damaged causing emergency response time to be increased.
All facilities will be closed until power is restored, including:
- Cravens Bay Campground
- Elk & Bison Prairie
- Golden Pond Visitor Center and Planetarium
- Homeplace 1850s Farm
- North and South Welcome Stations
- Turkey Bay OHV Area
- Woodlands Nature Station
- Wranglers Campground
Roads and trails may be blocked by fallen trees, high water, or damaged by the heavy rain. Please keep driving to a minimum on all roads across the recreation area so staff may assess damage and begin cleanup efforts.
