Official pleased with changes at Land Between the Lakes

EDDYVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Lyon County Judge-executive Wade White is calling this year’s changes at the Land Between the Lakes a “positive turnaround.”

The Paducah Sun ( reports improvements to campgrounds, trails and other recreational facilities at LBL have been a few of the changes that area residents and visitors have called for during an ongoing discussion between the public and the Forest Service regarding the future of the area.

White has led a campaign aimed at encouraging the Forest Service to reconsider its plans for scenery changes and to make improvements to public facilities at Land Between the Lakes.

Among some changes, the Forest Service recently replaced two shelters at the Hillman Ferry Campground. White says some new road and bridge construction is in the works, and the Hematite Trail is slated for improvements.
