Designed by golf-course architect Robert M. Lohmann, Eagle Valley Golf Course stretches 6,692 yards through rolling terrain and rising crags of verdant knolls, creating a diverse landscape of testy tee-to-green holes. Duffer duos can challenge one another or pair up to face the course's ball-swallowing bunkers, mature trees, and hungry squirrels. An included golf cart accommodates golfers as they traverse through lush green lands on the hunt for a treasure chest of errant golf balls in the bottom of the course's four bodies of water. Golfers can begin their day perfecting their pendulum swings on the property's driving range. With two buckets of balls, every club in the bag of trick sticks can see use, from the pitching wedge to the mannequin leg.

Just across the bay from the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, Kentucky Dam Village is a modern campground comprised of 210 campsites, each equipped with water and electricity hookups. There's a cluster of service buildings at the center of the campground that offer modern amenities, too, including showers, restrooms, three dump stations, and a grocery store. The 17,000-acre recreation area near the campground is a popular spot for bird watching as well as canoeing and bass fishing at its two lakes, Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake. More than 200 miles of hiking trails crisscross the peninsula, ranging from short walks to lengthier routes. You can hike shorter portions of the 58-mile North-South Trail, which spans the entire length of the Land Between the Lakes. While hiking, you may catch a glimpse of wildlife including white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, foxes, and coyotes.

As the summer sun dips lazily into the horizon, the air fills with an orchestra of buzzing go-karts and humming ziplines punctuated by floods of laughter. The revelry lasts into the night only to start anew the next morning, a cycle that will continue until Labor Day’s arrival sends Kentucky Shores Family Fun Center’s attractions into hibernation. Guests of all ages romp around the park’s verdant grounds, orchestrating aquatic collisions in the bumper boats or hopping aboard a horse-drawn carriage for a trip back in time without the hassle of having to arm-wrestle your past self. The 36-hole mini golf course adds a touch of the majestic to putting outings thanks to its two waterfalls and stainless steel sculptures forged by renowned artist George Bandarra. Indoors, an arcade beckons guests to video games and rounds of skeeball, and a snack bar staves off hunger pangs with frozen treats and gooey pizzas.

It's fitting that Perryville Pumpkin Farm caters to families since the farm itself has been a part of the Koenig family's history since 1892. And though the farm has changed a lot since the days when its fields were used to raise cows, chickens, and hogs, it's still managed to remain a tried-and-true family operation since transitioning to a pumpkin farm in 2001. Take Jarod Koenig, for instance, who designed and built the farm's mini golf course himself, and who also designs the one-acre corn maze every year. Meanwhile, Ryan Koenig and his mother Dianna hand-pick every pumpkin sold at the farm stand, leaving the rest for adventurous guests who prefer to peruse the vines themselves. Even family friends contribute to the fun, providing the handmade jellies and jams sold in the farm's shop. Besides welcoming guests to tour the farm or get lost in the twisting stalks of corn, Perryville Pumpkin Farm hosts a whole slew of autumn activities. Kids can climb on a straw bale fort, crawl through a straw tunnel, or practice their aim with the pumpkin sling. Animals also play a big part in the fun here, and guests can feed the goats and chickens, or even try their hand at milking a cow with a little help from local dairy farmer, Dan. Of course, the main event is the wagon ride out to the massive pumpkin patch where guests can pick a perfect specimen to take home and carve into a jack-o-lantern or a slightly smaller pumpkin.
