Land Between the Lakes (July 20, 2003)

The Land Between the Lakes is a U.S. Forest Service maintained National Recreation Area located between Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake in western Kentucky and northwestern Tennessee. A road known as "The Trace" runs north-south through the park, and US 68/KY 80 passes east-west through the park. The Between the Lakes Canal, a canal between the two lakes, bounds the northern edge of the park. The Trace continues north as KY 453 and crosses the canal via the Between the Rivers Memorial Bridge.
