Boating on the Green River Lake…

One of the Taylor County’s greatest recreational attractions is Green River Lake! Encompassing 8,210 surface acres of water and over 20,000 acres of wildlife management area, beautiful scenery and great outdoor recreational opportunities are in abundance. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers started construction of Green River Dam in April 1964, and the lake was completed in June 1969 offering many attractions for those who love nature and wish to experience the natural beauty of Kentucky. Along with the great camping, boating, fishing, hunting and picnicking opportunities found around Green River Lake, enjoy over 35 miles of trails twisting around the lake with some of the most scenic views in the region.

When boating on Green River Lake, you’ll have access to 11 boat ramps. For more information about the boat ramp and site fees on Green River Lake check out the Corps of Engineers website.

Boating on the Green River…

The Green River is Kentucky’s crown jewel of river systems and a national treasure of biodiversity. At 384 miles, it is one of Kentucky’s largest, longest, and most navigable rivers. It harbors one of the most diverse assemblages of fish and freshwater mussels in the United States. More than 150 fish and 70 mussels have been found in the river. Along your journey discover the many miles of dramatic bluffs and natural river environment. Enjoy the view of turkey, deer, beaver, birds and reptiles as you make your journey downstream.

You’ll find two access points to the Green River in Taylor County. The first access point is at the Tailwater below the dam which is at the very beginning of the Green River Paddle Trail.  The second access point is the Roachville access at mile marker 12.5 on the Green River which is a full day on the beautiful Green River. Near the end of the paddle, you’ll see a waterfall on the right and the Roachville ramp will follow shortly on the right.

As you flow down the river, you’re very likely to see turtles, ducks, deer and blue herons. You’ll notice on the right in the trees are green and white mile markers signs so you’ll know just where you’re at on the river.

The best water levels to paddle the upper Green for casual floating are from 150 to 500 cfs (cubic feet per second) of flow from the Green River Lake Dam.

The flow grows a little swift above 500 cfs and local outfitters recommend against floating if the flow from the dam is above 1,000 cfs. Always check with the Corps of Engineers at (270) 465-4463 before planning your trip to get the cfs that the river is flowing just to make sure that the water is safe to enter or go to the Louisville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers website.  You will see a chart showing the outflow from Green River Lake Dam. Look for the outflow CFS for Green River and remember, over 1,000 can be very dangerous.
