What is there to do?

With 1,331 acres of nature to play in, and a whopping 8,200 acres of lake to play ON, what better way to experience the beauty of Kentucky than at Green River Lake State Park

Feeling active? Just as well because there are 28 miles of trails for you to explore! They are great for mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking. You'll be wrapped up in the beauty of Green River Lake, and kids will have a great time getting into nature - playing and exploring. They might even be able to spot some wildlife! 

Want to enjoy some of that 8,200 acres of lake? There is a huge variety of fish waiting for you! From white, smallmouth, largemouth, and Kentucky bass - maybe you'll be lucky and catch a bluegrill crappie!

There are also 200 covered slips available for boats, including rental houseboats, jet skis and pontoon boats!

If that's not enough, there is an 18-hole mini golf course that you and the family can challenge each other over, as well as a fun playground where kids can get out all of that energy we know they have stored up! 

Spend the day enjoying a lovely picnic, and there's the marina with a restaurant, with all the boat facilities.  A beach in a State Park? There is here! Bask on the sand as a break from all that hiking! 

If you fancy spending the weekend because you're having so much fun, they even have an RV campground! It seems Green River Lake has enough nature fun to fill your family day out!

Say hi to the wildlife for us! You might just see a deer peeking his head around the trees as you take your walk. Don’t forget your camera!
