With a big snow storm headed Kentucky’s way within the next 24 hours, one of my favorite places on earth, the Land Between the Lakes is having to push back it’s opening dates.
It’s so hard for me to be patient when I am just DYING to spend an entire day in the LBL – starting with the Nature Station, then the Homeplace, and (after a catfish dinner), finishing it all off in a place that I think of as Heaven on Earth, the Elk & Bison Prairie.
The picture above is from our most recent visit and I’m sure it isn’t hard to see why I’m crazy about this prairie!
Everyone stay safe during Winter’s snowy swan song and take extra precautions with outside pets – bring them inside if at all possible. Also, if you’re able to, the birds and squirrels would greatly appreciate some dried corn, birdseed, and even breadcrumbs.
They told me they’d be forever grateful.
Below is the latest press release from the LBL.
The predicted winter weather event due to hit our area mid-week, has prompted Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area to push back the season opening of campgrounds and facilities for the safety of our guests.
The following attractions and facilities previously scheduled to open for the season March 4, will now re-open Wednesday, March 11, weather permitting.
- North and South Welcome Stations
- Woodland Nature Station and Homeplace-1850 living history farm
- Developed Campgrounds – Energy Lake, Hillman Ferry, Piney, and Wranglers
At this time, the Golden Pond Visitor Center, Planetarium and Elk & Bison Prairie are open daily, weather permitting.
Turkey Bay Off-Highway Vehicle Area remains closed until weather and soil conditions greatly improve. Many side roads were not treated following the previous winter weather event and are still ice and snow packed. Please drive slowly and use caution when driving through the area.
