GOLDEN POND, KY: The jetty next to the boat ramp at Fenton will be closed to foot and vehicle traffic on Friday, July 11; Monday, July 14; and Tuesday, July 15. It will be open over the weekend for fishing access. Large vegetation will be removed from the jetty during this time. The boat ramp will remain open.
“Tree roots can damage or break a jetty apart over time, so we are removing them now to protect the integrity of the jetty,” says Gary Hawkins, Recreation Specialist at Land Between The Lakes.
