Lake Malone State Park
'Reel Therapy'

Mike Rileys Reel Therapy on Lake Malone.

Spanning 788 lake acres, Lake Malone captures Kentucky's beauty in a small package. The lake is enclosed by dramatic 50-foot sandstone bluffs rising above the water's edge and surrounded by hardwood forests. The park has a campground, marina, beach and hiking trail.

Discover the beautiful landscape of Lake Malone State Park on the 1.5-mile Laurel Trail. This easy-rated hiking trail provides picturesque views of many rock walls, once used as shelters by Native Americans. Mountain laurel, holly, dogwood and wildflowers provide a rich tapestry of native flora. Natural wonders abound in this secluded wilderness!
