Lodging & Camping

With an expansive view of Kentucky Lake as the Tennessee River pushes its waters through the gates of historic Kentucky Dam, guests to the Main Lobby often find themselves spending time just lounging while enjoying the panoramic view. While the 72 rooms of the lodge offer a private patio or balcony, the Village Green Inn is located near the 18-hole golf course where accommodations may be rented for individuals or groups. Sixty-one cottages are also available, reminding visitors that this state park was once a village--still with its own post office. The park is pet-friendly and camping is seasonal. Lodging available by late afternoon. Check out by 11 a.m., local time.

Kentucky Dam Village is one of three state resort parks near Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, a 170,000-acre wooded peninsula bound by Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley. We can accommodate conferences, reunions, receptions or meetings of any size in a beautiful location with fun activities for adults and children alike.

Kentucky Dam Village is located approximately 12 miles from the north entrance of the Land Between the Lakes where more than 200 miles of trails and abandoned roads meander through the backwoods, fields and alongside peaceful lakeshores.

Swimming is available at one of the few “public-access” sand beaches on Kentucky Lake. Adjacent to the walking/biking path across Kentucky Dam, it is open seasonally from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. with a pavilion and beach volleyball courts.

An outdoor swimming pool adjacent to the lodge is for use of lodge and cottage guests.
