Land Between the Lakes To Close Amidst Winter Storm Predictions

The impending winter storm has prompted Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area to close all facilities by 5 PM Thursday.  

All visitors will be asked to leave, including campers in backcountry areas. 

In a release, LBL Area Supervisor Tina Tilley said closing is the safest decision due to hazardous road conditions with freezing rain, sleet, snow and freezing temperatures predicted for our area.

Tilley said LBL will reopen when conditions allow.
