Paris Landing State Park sits on the western shore of Kentucky Lake at its widest point. With three miles of water from shore to shore, there is plenty of room for boating, skiing, swimming, fishing and soaking up the sun. This popular resort park has lots for landlubbers to do as well, from golf to hiking, from watching wildlife to relaxing on the balcony at the lakefront inn.
The same river access that once made this site an important stop for steamboats and freighters ferrying people and goods up and down the river now brings vacationers for outdoor fun. The site of the original landing is now under the waters of the lake, inundated when TVA dammed the river in 1944 to create Kentucky Lake.
Fishing is king at Paris Landing, and the marina has hosted numerous professional bass and crappie tournaments. But golfers love it here, too. The par 72, 18-hole course is lined throughout with trees, and several holes are lakeside. It has been the site of several high school and college championship tournaments.
18 miles east of Paris, TN on US Highway 79 or 45 miles West of Clarksville, TN on US Highway 79.
