A brief introduction to Green River Lake

Green River Lake is the largest project in the Louisville District -- counting both the land and water acreage (33,793 acres). The Green River is the longest river, at 370 miles, to flow completely within the Commonwealth of Kentucky's borders. Green River Lake also is home to the first Interpretative Center, opened in 1972, in the Louisville Engineer District.

Green River Lake is a 8,210-acre (33 km2) reservoir in Adair, Taylor, and Casey counties in Kentucky lying in the section of Kentucky known as the Highland Rim.
The lake was developed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in 1969 by impounding the Green River. The dam is an 11 miles (18 km) drive equidistant from the cities of Campbellsville and Columbia. The lake is located 90 miles southeast of Louisville.
Operated and maintained primarily for flood control, the lake has become the major attraction of Green River Lake State Park.
