Things To Do in Cadiz

Including Little River

Cadiz, Kentucky and the surrounding area is known for two things:  a wide range of lake-related activities and antiques.

Lake Barkley

Lake Barkley splits Trigg County right down the middle.  And with that comes the biggest attraction in Trigg County - the lake itself.  Lake Barkley offers superb recreation from boating to fishing .  The lake also has numerous resorts around its edge, including Lake Barkley State Resort Park.  The resort features a lodge, restaurant, marina, beach, a fitness center, indoor swimming pool, an airport, convention center, and several other recreational services.

Land Between The Lakes

With Barkley splitting Trigg County, The Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area covers a good chunk of the county.  LBL is accessible via US 68 in Trigg County and offers a wide variety of activities including hunting, fishing, bird and wildlife watching, hiking, biking, and so much more.  The 170,000-acre park features several nature centers, smaller lakes, historic sites, a buffalo-elk range... the list goes on and on.  LBL has more than one million visitors annually, so see for yourself why it is so popular.


Nearly a dozen antique stores can be found in downtown Cadiz.  You can find all types of antiques, from dolls to jewelry to furniture.  Most major credit cards are accepted, and most of the shops are open seven days a week.  While you are downtown, be sure to drive up Main Street and see all the beautiful, old Victorian-style homes!  You can also walk the Cadiz Trail, a paved trail that was once the Cadiz Railroad.

If you are visiting Land Between The Lakes after dark, you are sure to hear the hoots of one of the many species of owls that can be found in this region.
