Barren River Lake was created by an earth and
rock fill dam built across the Barren River by the Louisville District
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. A full range of development includes
facilities for land and water-based recreation, camping, fishing, boating,
hunting, picnicking, swimming, and scenic beauty. The Lake project was
constructed for the purpose of reducing flood damage on the Barren River.
Barren River Lake covers 10,000 acres at summer pool and 20,150 acres at
the maximum flood control pool. The Corps manages 20,108 acres for
wildlife, fisheries and recreation at Barren River Lake and is situated in
Allen and Barren counties in south- central Kentucky.
