Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area offers multiple uses for recreation and environmental education which require multiple tools for land and resource management.
While visiting, you may see various management activities in progress. In some areas we maintain open lands using prescribed fire. In other areas you might see trees being planted, thinned, or harvested. These efforts offer diverse habitats for the plant and animal communities of our area. For instance, some tree species require full sunlight to grow and birds like quail require ground cover to hide their nests from predators.
Our Land and Resource Management Plan created in 2004 still guides our resource management efforts today.

Thank you to all who contributed to the forest-wide road study also known as the Travel Analysis Process. The Forest Service has released all the Travel Analysis Reports that analyze the existing National Forest road system and identifies opportunities to achieve a more ecologically and economically sustainable road system for each National Forest and Grassland.
These reports are part of a nationwide requirement and are not decision documents—instead, they provide an analysis of the road system as it exists today. All future proposed actions and decisions will allow for further opportunities for public input and engagement at the project-level under National Environmental Policy Act processes.
If you have a specific question on a road, trail, or area you may contact Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area at (270-924-2000) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
