Bald Eagle tours at Land Between The Lakes

The Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area will be conducting bald eagle tours again this year. You have the option of visiting some of the LBL’s eagle-viewing hot spots during one of the Van Tours which will be conducted on Dec. 11th, Jan. 23rd and 30th, and Feb. 6th. The price is $7 for adults.

For up close views of the eagles from the water, Land Between The Lakes will also be hosting a series of cruises on Kentucky Lake on Jan. 15th, 16th, and 17th. The cost for these tours is $60 and includes lunch.

The LBL is a major wintering spot for bald eagles from northern areas such as Michigan and Canada. The eagles use the LBL as a breeding and nesting area.

Land Between The Lakes, located in western Tennessee and Kentucky, is also known for the bison and elk that roam within the park boundaries. In fact, the original elk that were reintroduced to Great Smoky Mountain National Park in February of 2001 came from the LBL.

The LBL area also features more than 200 miles of hiking trails, including the Fort Henry National Recreation Trail.
