With canoes, kayaks, pontoons, jet-skis, and chartered luxury boats, the choices for getting out on the water h ere are nearly endless. Navigate the waters around your Kentucky Lake cabin at the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, where you can hop off and explore hiking trails for all levels. Feast your eyes on the bison, coyotes, red-horned owls, and other wildlife inhabiting the local nature preserves.
