GOLDEN POND, KY – Wranglers Campground at Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area will host the 18th Annual Primitive Rodeo, Friday and Saturday, July 18 and 19. The rodeo is open to the public. Admission is $10 ages 12 and up and $5 ages 11 and under. Wranglers’ staff recommends people bring a lawn chair or blanket for seating. Coolers are prohibited; food vendors will be available. In addition, camping at Wranglers will be half-price on Friday and Saturday.

Championship Productions Rodeo from Monticello, Arkansas, brings the rodeo to visitors at Land Between The Lakes. New this year will be the Rawhide & Dusty Show, entertaining the crowd with trick roping and whip popping. 

“This is an opportunity to see something a little different. “The rodeo provides a great family friendly event with activities for the kids. For $10 visitors can have their picture taken with ‘Winchester,’ the gentle Brahma Bull, to remember this fun event and support his retirement,” says Randall Mitchell, Manager at Wranglers.
