Do people live on these lakes? and if so how expensive is the real estate, could I get something for $100,000 or less? Or even something that is near enough I could walk to the lakes? Also is there biking/walking trails around the lakes?

Ky Lake is pretty big. Yes, people live on the lake. There are A LOT of communities that are mostly retired folks living in mobil homes on the lake. As for Barkley, not nearly as big. I'd go for Ky Lake myself. The properties are probably within the budget you stated. I'm sure you could find any range of cost... it just depends on what kind of place you expect $100,000 to get you. (As with any community.)

Yes, there are people that live on Kentucky Lake and Barkley Lake.
There are houses, cabins, modulars and trailers. A little bit of everything.
Cost varies depending on what you are looking for such as size and closeness to the lake.
In Cadiz, KY (Trigg County) there is a Barkley Lake State Resort Park and also
The Land Between the Lakes has several kinds of trails walking, bicycling, ATV, etc.
If you would like other information just let me know.

Yep, you can live right on the lake, I have friends with a cabin up there right now.

I'm not sure what houses and land are going for now, but for lake front property, I don't believe its terribly bad.

Not taking away from your work, Tammy, but, Topo, go to Real Estate Listings, Homes for Sale and Rental Property Listings – REALTOR.com® and check Cadiz, Aurora, Benton, Murray, Hardin. They will all have places on or near the lakes. My step daughter and family just bought a 4 BR 2 bath with 16 acres for around $140K. They're about 5 miles from Linton, on Lake Barkley.

Bringing this older thread back to the top. We're looking at Barkley and Kentucky Lake for retirement. However, I think that all the nearby areas are small towns (population of 20,000 or less). We're used to having a large variety of restaurants (including ethnic), bars, shops, etc. nearby - within a ten minute driving distance.

Alternatively, we might consider a large, 55+ community (like a Del Webb kind of place - not manufactured homes or RV park).

Does anyplace like this exist near these two great fishing lakes?

This might be one option in Clarksville TN.
Savannah Crossings « Tucker Corporation
A 55+ community.

275,000 people in the Clarksville metro area, with about half that in the city itself. 20-30 miles to the south end of Lake Barkley. 45 miles to Nashville.
