You have to actually see this amazing lake to really get the beauty of it. Some of the best Walleye fishing in the US and great camping sites for the whole family to enjoy.

When Kentucky Lake was formed it was called "the largest man-made lake in the world" but that seems to have changed?
Kentucky Lake has over 2,000 miles of shoreline

Not so. Lake Mead is the largest man made lake in the U.S.
The sizes of artificial lakes is measured by volume, and in the United States this is typically measured in acre-feet. The values reported here are for the "normal" volume for which the lake was designed. Of course, variations in climate will cause lakes to fluctuate over time, sometimes being larger or smaller than reported here.

1. Lake Mead (Arizona and Nevada) — 28.5 million acre-feet in volume

2. Lake Powell (Arizona and Utah) — 24.3 million acre-feet in volume

3. Lake Sakakawea (North Dakota) — 23.8 million acre-feet in volume

4. Lake Oahe (South Dakota) — 23.5 million acre-feet in volume

5. Fort Peck Lake (Montana) — 17.9 million acre-feet in volume

(An acre-foot is the amount of water required to cover one acre of ground to a depth of one foot. It is 325,851 gallons, or 1,233,500 liters.)
