Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park is continuing a rich tradition in hosting The Gathering of the Eagles, a weekend dedicated to our national symbol, the Bald Eagle. When the weather starts to turn cold Bald Eagles from the north migrate south in search of ample food supplies. Kentucky State Parks takes this opportunity to arrange special field outings to view this majestic bird in the wild. 

Two different tour options are available through our park.

Luxury Boat Tours

Experience the beauty of Kentucky Lake on board a luxury cruise ship while you view a diverse range of wildlife from the comfort of indoor cabins and outdoor decks. Interpretive staff from Kentucky Dept. of Parks and Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife will be available to assist in spotting these magnificent birds and to answer any questions.
