Cedar Creek Lake is a 762  acre fishing lake located between Stanford and Crab Orchard in Lincoln County.  IMG_5020This is the second largest state controlled lake in Kentucky and is stocked with bluegill, black crappie, channel catfish, large mouth bass and sunfish.  All trees and shrubs were left in the lake to provide a fisherman’s paradise.

A buffer zone surrounds the perimeter of the lake and there are 3 boat ramps that provide access to the lake.  There is no lodging at the lake and the nearest major city is Danville.

Cedar Creek Lake Outfitters, in Central Kentucky, one mile East of the dam on Hwy 150, is a full service bait and tackle shop, including live bait for your fishing needs. You can check them out here:  Cedar Creek Outfitters

Lake Barkley State Resort Park.. Cadiz, Kentucky


Lake Barkley State Resort Park located in Cadiz, Kentucky is a wonderful place to visit. My mother and I took a spur of the moment trip to Lake Barkley last year and the tranquil feel of the lodge is so peaceful. We loved the rooms, they have a very unique cabin feel! Everything around this resort is rustic and peaceful. The buffet over looking the lake was the perfect ending to our day.  This is the perfect place to relax and see the amazing things Kentucky State Parks have to offer. I personally feel that Lake Barkley is the prettiest lake in this great state. If you have not been to this area, I highly recommend loading up the family and heading to this beautiful area of Kentucky.

This state park offers so much:

    • pool
    • fitness center
    •  fishing
    • boating
    • restaurant
    • buffet
    • golf
    • hiking

and many more fun activities.
