    it's called Barkley lake and it is not connected to Indiana in any manner. Since it is connected to Kentucky lake the two make the largest man made lbody of water in the country, Over 2,500 miles of shore line. The east side of lake Barkley is Kentucky in the north up to the dam. the southeren part is in tennessee. Same on Kentucky lake. The land in the middle is known as LBL, land between the lakes, it is run by the TVA and has about a dozen campgrounds. LBL even has it's own hunting seasons. It's a great area but sorry nothing to do with Indiana

    It is Kentucky's lake. Hoosiers just over load it. I am from Indiana it seems like Barkley has more hoosiers than Kentucky lake.
