Located on the western shore of Kentucky Lake, Kenlake offers a choice of quiet relaxation or active recreation. Take to the net at the tennis center, a seasonal facility with temperature-controlled courts, racquet rentals and a pro shop as you play a relaxing game of golf on our 9-hole golf course.

Kenlake State Resort Park is a polished vacation and business retreat in the heart of one of the nation's finest outdoor recreation areas. The resort is only minutes away from Land Between the Lakes, a 170,000-acre nature lover's paradise and environmental education area. Located on the mid-west shore of Kentucky Lake, with the longest shoreline of any man-made lake in the eastern United States, Kenlake is the perfect spot to enjoy the great outdoors!

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
July 15 Family Reunion by jellybelly82
My family has been going to Kenlake for over 40 years for our reunion on Fourth of July. I think the 40 years says it all. Just make sure to bring your own kitchen stuff, some cabins have more than enough and others have next to nothing. But the staff is great and it is beautiful! And make sure you eat at the Dinner Bell!
May 19 Our FAVORITE summer destination! by Crystal
We have stayed at Kenlake State Park 3 summers and plan to again this summer! We love everything from the southern hospitality, boating, biking, horse back riding, swimmning, the beautiful surroundings, FOOD and the MANY things to do while we are there. We have stayed other places but none of them match the ammentities and feel of Kenlake State Park! I HIGHLY reccommend a week long stay in the cottages - the lodge is great too! My husband and I have 4 children and we find Kenlake State Park VERY kid friendly!
