Purchase Parkway

  • Western Waterlands
66 miles

The Purchase Parkway follows the Jackson Purchase route through Western Kentucky, where you will find beautiful farmland, shimmering lakes and Civil War history.

A highlight of this drive is Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park, which has the largest marina within the park system and sits on the state's largest lake, Kentucky Lake. Here you can rest in the peaceful lodge, play 18 holes of golf, or simply kick back and relax in nature. Art lovers should make a special stop at the Ice House Gallery and Gift Shop. And Columbus-Belmont State Park offers everything from scenic strolls along the Mississippi River to Native American and Civil War historic sites.
