Dewey Lake Shelters offer a day-use area on the shores of Dewey Lake in eastern Kentucky. Located just west of the Appalachian Mountains, the lake shore offers a peaceful, forested setting with plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities for groups of up to 150 guests. Natural Features: The lake is surrounded by rolling, forested hills that rise hundreds of feet above the water. The thick forests and calm water provide habitat for a variety of animals, including bald eagles, black bear, elk, deer, osprey and otters. Fall foliage displays brighten the lush green forests each fall. Recreation: The picnic shelters are situated on an open, grassy area with plenty of space for children to play. A hiking trail is located near picnic shelter 4. Fishing is a popular activity from boats and the shoreline, and anglers will find bass, crappie, brim, bluegill, catfish and muskie. Hunting is also allowed in various areas throughout the land surrounding the lake. Jenny Wiley State Resort Park, which lines much of the western shore of the lake, has many additional amenities and activities, such as off-road bicycling and hiking trails and a marina with boat rentals and docking facilities. Facilities: Dewey Lake offers four covered picnic shelters, ideal for family reunions and other large group events. All shelters have electric hookups and are near a playground. Shelter 2 is also adjacent to a baseball field, and shelters 3 and 4 are closest to Dewey Dam.
