Maggies Jungle Run

Kentucky Lake is the perfect vacation spot for every family!

 

You can spend the week reconnecting with your family and helping your kids discover something new. At Kentucky Lake you can go back in time with Patti’s 1880’s settlement or a visit to the Hitching Post. Or, take a tour of Megson Farms where you’ll be able to see the largest herd of white thoroughbreds in North America.

 

Need a night out? Calvert City Drive In is the perfect end to a day at the lake. Grab dinner and enjoy a movie all from the comfort of your car or camp chair! Or, take the family to a fun night at the Kentucky Opry Country Music Show.  

 

And that’s not to mention all of the hiking, boating and fishing you can enjoy the rest of the week!
