Land Between The Lakes Will Be Closed Friday
Due to inclement weather moving into the region, LBL will be closing all facilities by 5PM on Thursday. Visitors, including campers, will be asked to leave. Turkey Bay closed at 5PM on Wednesday.
The decision has been made due to the chance of freezing rain, sleet, and snow creating dangerous conditions in the area.
