Bordering TVA's Land Between the Lakes Recreation Area in the rolling hills of southwest Kentucky and north central Tennessee, Lake Barkley offers waterfowl hunting, great boating and fishing, nature trails, a national battlefield, and a national waterfowl refuge. In fact there's so much to this lake that a lot of people end up getting a houseboat rental and spending several days taking it all in. If that's not enough, Lake Barkley is connected by canal to Kentucky Lake.
