Flatwoods Boat Ramp

Area Status: Open

Flatwoods Boat Ramp is located along the northern shoreline of  Laurel River Lake off of Forest Service Road 758. 

Laurel River Lake is located on London Ranger District and features 5,600 acres of clear, deep water and nearly 200 miles of tree-lined shore. The quiet coves and cliff-lined shores offer relaxation and quiet reflection, as well as boating, fishing, skiing and scuba diving in one of the deepest and cleanest lakes in Kentucky. Fishing for black bass, rainbow trout, walleye, crappie, blue gill and catfish is excellent. Night fishing for trout is also popular during the summer months.

Trails: Flatwoods Trail #470 follows the shoreline between the boat ramp and the picnic area.
