Eagle watching has become a popular winter attraction in the Kentucky Lake region. These majestic birds were once considered an endangered species, but they are now making a comeback in the wild likely partly due to increased awareness and the federal protection once placed upon them.
Bird watching, or birding, draws people of all ages to Kentucky Lake year-round. With more than 250 species of birds in the Land Between the Lakes, it’s no wonder people of all ages enjoy birding at Kentucky Lake.
If an up-close wildlife experience sounds fun, then plan to add a visit to the Elk and Bison Prairie on your agenda while visiting the Land Between the Lakes Recreational Area in Kentucky. The Elk and Bison Prairie is a 700-acre wildlife enclosure where elk and bison roam free.
The Land Between the Lakes region is a Hikers dream with over 500 miles of trails to explore! Hiking is popular for all ages. Both young and young-at-heart can find enjoyment in a gentle walk through nature exploring the wildflowers, plants, and wildlife that call our local woods home.
