Boating & Marinas

With 160,000 acres of water, Kentucky Lake is a paradise for water sports lovers. There are numerous marinas and boat rentals available in the area, many of which are within a short distance from us. In fact, Ken-Bar Lodge is just 200 feet south of Kentucky Dam Marina. To find out more, please visit our Boating & Marinas page.


With its large variety of fish species, and 2400 miles of shoreline, Kentucky Lake is one of the premier fishing destinations in the USA. Here, you'll find trophy-sized largemouth, smallmouth & striped bass, along with crappie, catfish and bluegill in abundance. People come from all over the United States each spring to experience the best crappie fishing there is - which is no surprise, since Kentucky Lake is the "Crappie Capital of the World"!

Kentucky Lake is excellent for catfish and bass fishing, too. Catfish weighing in at over one hundred pounds have been caught at Kentucky Lake! Numerous places for boat rentals and fishing guides are available close by.

Ken-Bar Lodge brings you close to all the golfing action! The 18-hole Village Green Golf Course at Kentucky Dam Village is less than five minutes away, and Kerry Landing Golf Course is also nearby. And if you're in the mood for a slightly less serious game, you can always visit Maggie's Jungle Golf or Forgotten Past for a relaxing afternoon of miniature golf. Click here for more information.
