Louisville, KY --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District’s Corps-managed swimming areas will be opening Monday, June 29, in alignment with Kentucky’s phased reopening plan. Additional recreational features will also reopen to groups limited to 50 or less.
This applies to all Corps-operated beaches at our Louisville District Lakes in Kentucky. Other USACE Lakes in the state of Kentucky are managed by the Nashville and Huntington Districts. We recommend the public contact the respective USACE lake office for the latest on their operating status. State-operated beaches at Corps Lakes have their own policies in place. We recommend the public contact the respective state agencies for the latest on their operating status.
USACE reminds all visitors to follow these steps to recreate responsibly: honor the 6-foot social distance rule, stay away from parks and recreation areas if you are sick or have symptoms, keep parks clean by practicing “pack in and pack out” etiquette, and always wear a life jacket when near the water.
At this time visitor centers and Corps offices remain closed to the public in the interest of public safety. The Louisville District continues to assess the situation and will conduct a phased reopening of these areas in alignment with current federal, state and CDC guidance. We will share those updates with the public as they become available.
