Things to do

Paris Landing State Park is an 841-acre park located on the western shore of the Tennessee River, which is dammed to form Kentucky Lake (160,000 acres). The park sits on the widest part of the lake making it the perfect location for all water sports such as fishing, boating, swimming, and waterskiing. The park also offers a beautiful and challenging Par 72, 18-hole golf course. The park pro shop provides golfing supplies, lessons, rental clubs, and carts.

Swimming

The pool at Paris Landing State Park will remain closed for the 2020 summer season. The decision was made to keep this facility closed in the interest of public health and staff safety. COVID-19 presents unique challenges for managing pools. Pools are confined spaces not conducive to social distancing. The very nature of lifeguarding requires close contact with pool users and creates the potential for unnecessary risk in life-saving situations. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to the next opportunity we have to reopen the pool for your enjoyment.

Our park remains open and is still a great place for you to enjoy water-based recreation this summer. Find other activities at the park here.

Birding

Along the paved picnic loop, views of the lake are fantastic for migrating and wintering water birds. In late afternoon sunlight coots, geese, loons, grebes, cormorants and many bay ducks can be seen. In the shallows and swampy areas adjacent to the south and north sides of State Highway 79, marsh ducks congregate.

Boating

The park features a full-service marina with annual and transient slips, and four lane public boat launch ramp.  The ramp will accommodate wave runners and boats up to 72 feet.

Fishing

Fishing is productive from the bank and fishing piers, but the best way to experience this large reservoir is by boat.

Golf

The Paris Landing State Park Golf Course is situated on the western shore of Kentucky Lake, located in the “Land Between the Lakes” area.

Hiking

Paris Landing has three hiking trails ranging from easy to moderate.
