The Land Between the Lakes is making some changes that will benefit users this spring.

The 170,000-acre federal reserve in Kentucky and Tennessee lies between the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers.

Acting area supervisor Brian Beisel says camping will cost less at the Smith Bay and Birmingham Ferry campgrounds because they have been converted to backcountry camping areas.

There will also be another recreational area available. The Northern Nature Watch Area near the Woodland Nature Center is opening 8,500 acres to day use.

Rushing Creek and Jones Creek Campgrounds have been closed to camping and vehicles due to budget reductions in maintenance, but the Jones Creek boat ramp will remain open. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
