Beautiful

I gave Smith Ridge 5 stars because it offers a lot of great fishing spots and beautiful views. There isn't but maybe one trail there, and it's unmarked. It could use some updating. There are cabins available to rent, a beach, and boat ramp available to those that wish to fish. There is also houseboats available at Smith Ridge as well.

Green River Lake

Name works, it’s very green, there’s a river and a lake. Just stopped here passing through, was very well cared for. Lots of clean facilities and stuff to do, mostly water-related (who knew KY has beaches?). Some easy trails on site. Open campsite, big shade trees though.
