Overview

Overview

Grayson Lake Dam Site Shelters are just seven miles south of Grayson, Kentucky on state Route 7 on Grayson Lake. Recreational activities abound on and around this 20-mile long lake. Boating, fishing, hiking, horseback riding and hunting are the area's most popular draws.

Natural Features:

Grayson Lake is known for its sculptured sandstone cliffs that rise 30 to 200 feet above the lake's surface, providing many narrow, scenic canyons just waiting to be explored.

The gently sloping landscape around the lake is forested with a mixture of oak, white and yellow pine, elm, and Kentucky's state tree, the Tulip Poplar. Fall colors are particularly impressive at Grayson Lake.

Recreation:

Visitors flock to Grayson Lake for its numerous recreational opportunities, including boating, canoeing, swimming, and fishing for bass, crappie, catfish and bluegill. A marina is located at the dam site for convenient boat storage.

Hikers enjoy the Api-su-ahts Trail, with four loops totaling over 22 miles. The trail offers scenic views of the lakeshore and mature hardwood forests as it winds through creek bottoms, hollows and ridgetops in the more secluded region of the Wildlife Management Area east of Grayson Lake.

Facilities:

This site contains four group picnic shelters with water and 15-amp electrical hookups, large grills and picnic tables. Accessible vault toilets are provided, though the toilets near Shelter #2 are not accessible.

A playground for family-friendly entertainment is located near Shelter #2.

Nearby Attractions:

The Grayson Game Refuge Area and Wildlife Management Area are both nearby, offering hiking, hunting, birding and fishing.

Grayson Lake State Park is just a few minutes away, with an 18-hole golf course, camping, hiking and more great water activities.
