Abstract:

The original Master Plan for Lake Barkley was approved in 1962. The most important goal of this updated Master Plan is to consolidate the existing recreational sites and to relocate some facilities in order to provide optimum recreational opportunities and services in those areas with most intense visitation. Major visitation and use patterns were analyzed to assess current and future needs. The general purpose of the plan is to insure continuity in development, operation, and maintenance of Lake Barkley. The recreational opportunities are to be suitable to the varying characteristics of the lake. Recommendations will be implemented in 3 phases. Phase I will involve limited relocation of facilities closures reorganization of roads, parking, etc. and other minor improvements. Phase II will involve larger relocations and major improvements. Phases I and II will be implemented within the ongoing operation and maintenance program. Phase III will require cost-sharing partners and will involve major expansion of facilities and development of new sites. Phase III could be, to varying degrees, current with Phase I and II.
