Meeting up with lake friends, filling up for more cruising on the lake, picking up a few necessities, or simply savoring the sight of beautiful boats neatly lined up, marinas are clearly important to Kentucky lake goers.
We heard from many of you after our Worth the Trip cover story on marinas last month.
“Laurel Lake and Grove Marina are definitely our favorite!” says Melissa York, a consumer-member of Owen Electric. “My husband’s family has been going there since 2002. His mom and all of the siblings and spouses stay on the boat, and a lot of the grandkids camp nearby. Total there are about 26 people out enjoying fishing, tubing, kayaking and just sunbathing.”
Marilynn Collins likes Buckhorn Marina. “The staff is friendly and helpful,” she writes. “We live in Indiana and come to Kentucky a lot. The fishing is great. I like the beautiful rocks and view.”
“Hands-down Moors Marina on Kentucky Lake,” says Leah Feagin of Mayfield, a consumer-member of West Kentucky RECC, while Travis Leffew, a consumer-member of Nolin RECC in Elizabethtown, is a fan of Lee’s Ford Marina on Lake Cumberland.
John Walters says, “Visited the Conley Bottom Marina Resort at the Cumberland Lake in our beautiful Kentucky! It has a beautiful new building, fantastic staff and you’ll probably meet Mr. Conley himself, as he is always there to say hello and ask you where you are from. Our first visit and boat rental. Top-notch.”
“Our favorite marina is Green River State Marina in Campbellsville,” says Gayle Decker, a Meade County RECC consumer-member whose houseboat is in the Taylor County RECC service area.
While we couldn’t print all your replies, we’re happy to see so much passion about marinas. Enjoy your time on the lake this summer.
