If you love life on the water, you've come to the right place! Land Between The Lakes is surrounded by Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, offering endless opportunities for water sports and activities. Whether you're interested in fishing, pleasure boating, water skiing, wake boarding, or just going for a swim, it's all close by. Swim at any one of our lake access areas located throughout LBL, canoe one of our quiet bays, enjoy a group outing on a pontoon, or fish the lakes with your personal boat. Boat ramps are located throughout LBL, as well as other public and private marinas nearby. Please note there are no lifeguards at LBL.

If you do not own a boat there are several rental options that will get you out on the water. During certain times of the year at LBL, you can rent a canoe at Woodlands Nature Station, while Energy Lake Campground offers canoe and kayak rentals. Click HERE, then look under Woodlands Nature Station or Energy Lake Campground for specific canoe rental information.
