GOLDEN POND, KY: Due to the current drought conditions in the area, and increasingly dry weather in the forecast, management at Land Between The Lakes reminds visitors to the area to use extreme caution when building campfires, especially in the backcountry. Visitors are asked to remove any debris around the fire ring, make sure campfire ashes are cold before leaving unattended, and to keep a bucket of water and a shovel nearby. Remember, only you can prevent wildfires.

Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area manages more than 170,000 acres in western Kentucky and Tennessee as part of the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture’s public lands program. Land Between The Lakes offers outdoor recreation, lake access, land management, and environmental education to over 1.4 million visitors annually. The Friends of Land Between The Lakes works in partnership with the Forest Service providing program services, funds development, and volunteer support.
