Trail Information


Located near Murray, KY and within the Land Between the Lakes boundary is Turkey Creek Road, the main entrance road into the Turkey Bay OHV Area. Shortly after the guardhouse, this trail is covered in tree canopy and is dense Kentucky forest all the way to the water's edge in the camping area. On top of access to off-road trails in Turkey Bay, the mud playground off the side of this trail is a fun place to splash your rig through. Turkey Bay OHV Area is a dense cluster of nearly 100 miles of off-road trails in the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. These trails are the only designated 4x4/off-road trails in the 170,000-acre park. The rest of the Land Between the Lakes offers hiking, horse trails, mountain bike, scenic roads, and 1400 campsites, including within Turkey Bay. This is the primary trail entrance to the park and you will have to spend time here. Make it worth your while by stopping by the mud pits before taking off into the trail system. Once inside the park, you could spend days exploring it and never take the same way twice. Turkey Bay is a midwest classic, don’t miss it.

Honestly, this trail isn't much but being from Colorado where we don't really have any mud?? These free-range mud pits were a blast to run through, even if it wasn't a blast to clean that mud when I was done. This park was fun and surprisingly huge for its overall size. Check this one out, especially if you live nearby and can't find a lot of off-roading.
