Eagle Watch Weekends

Eagle Watch Weekends

The holidays have come to a close and the winter blues will be setting in shortly.  We may just have a solution to get you through this winter season though!  The Kentucky State Parks and Land Between the Lakes Recreational Area are happy to bring you Eagle Watch Weekends! Before you say that’s too cold to even think about, let me add the words “luxurious yacht” into the equation.  That’s right!  Eagle watch weekends at Kentucky State Parks involve viewing eagles and other native wildlife all happen from the warmth and comfort of the CQ Princess! A 96 foot two-story yacht with glass windows, restrooms, refreshments, heat, as well as viewing decks on both floors!  Below you will find a list of weekends at our nearby State Parks that will be hosting an Eagle Watched Weekend.  The weekends include educational programs, an eagle cruise, live bird program, along with meal and lodging options too!

Land Between the Lakes will be offering Eagle van tours and the Eagle Cruise out of Kenlake Marina January 18th & 19th.  Van tours will take guests throughout the LBL area to spot this special bird and other wildlife too! If you are working on a budget, the van tour is the way to go at $15.00 per person.  The Eagle Cruise will cost $70 per person. For more van tour weekends, visit them here!
