Whether you like to go fast or take it slow, the Bluegrass State is teeming with lakes – from “The South’s Great Lakes” of Kentucky and Barkley to Lake Cumberland to scenic Eastern Kentucky reservoirs.


In fact, Kentucky has more shoreline than many coastal states, making it a perfect spot for a boating vacation. Add to that our full slate of marinas and operators, offering everything from boat rentals and storage to fuel, fishing tackle, supplies and even lakefront lodging - and boaters will find everything they need for a great day on the water!
