Turkey Bay OHV Area in LBL

Home | Land Between The Lakes | Turkey Bay OHV Area

Turkey Bay in LBLThe trails of Turkey Bay comprise Land Between The Lakes' designated off-highway vehicle area.  The area contains approximately 100 miles of OHV trails which offer a variety of terrain to challenge riders of every skill level.

In addition to the trails, Turkey Bay OHV permits camping at designated areas near the lake along road 167.  An added perk of the campsites is the ability to wake up and ride directly to the trails, as the sites offer chemical toilets, unloading ramps, and drinking water.

A new half-mile children's riding and learning trail – known as the Turkey Trot – is also available for younger riders.  The entire area is fenced off and incorporates fundamental obstacles such as small rocks and logs; uphill, downhill, and sidehill challenges; sharp turns; and “whoop-dee-doo's” for beginning riders to conquer.

Remember to "Call Before You Haul" to make sure Turkey Bay Trails are open and accessible.  On occasion the area is closed due to heavy rainfall or for trail rehabilitation.  To get the latest trail information, call 1-800-LBL-7077.
