Kentucky Dam Village State Park
Festival Coordinator: James Pollitte: (606-742-2222) firstname.lastname@example.org
Kentucky is noted for its beautiful state parks and the convention facilities found in them. The auditorium is inside the Kentucky Dam Village Resort Complex, located 20 miles east of Paducah, Kentucky, just off of I-24 at the KY Lake Dam. The Resort has hotel rooms and cottages for our reservation.
The negotiated rates are very good and the facilities are very comfortable and appropriate for our needs. Reservation numbers are (800) 325-0146 or (270) 362-4271. Discounted rates have been arranged for members of the Church of God International. Be sure to identify yourself as a member of the church. Check-in time is 4:00 p.m. and check-out is at 10:00 a.m.

After you call in for reservations you will be mailed a reservation form. This must be returned with one night’s deposit at least 30 days prior to your arrival. Note: This must be done to assure your reservation. If all accommodations are full, ask the desk to look outside the block for the Church. If you know you need a ‘late checkout’ work with the reservation desk.
This year the Church has many free functions planned for the brethren. For example, currently planned events are a free Luncheon Buffet; a Church Cookout/Songfest and Pool Party for teens and young people (weather permitting); a free Senior Luncheon with program and prizes; a Family Dance with catered party hord’oeuvres and beverages until 8:30p then Bingo with prizes; Bible Studies; a Talent Show; and more. Please note that in order to make these functions free to the brethren we will be accepting donations.
Camping: There are many campsites at the Resort and in the area. Sites range from developed family campgrounds to the “back country.”
Fishing, Boating, and Biking: One of the largest inland lake marinas in the country with fishing, boat rides, sail boating, and over 200 miles of biking trails. Check out the beach on the lake (weather permitting).
Golfing: Also at the Resort is an 18-hole golf course, horseback riding, and hiking trails.
There are many exciting things to do at the Resort and in the area. The “Land Between the Lakes” National Recreation Area is set on 170,000 acres of protected nature preserve between two of the largest lakes in the region with hundreds of miles of shoreline. Also at L-B-L is an 1850s area museum and “working farm,” the Elk & Bison Prairie located along a gently winding road, Woodsland Nature Station, and the Golden Pond Planetarium & Observatory to “gaze at the stars” and see a solar flare through a hydrogen refractor telescope. There are many fine restaurants in the area (Patti’s 1880s Settlement at Grand Rivers and The Brass Lantern, for example), train rides, antique malls, Put-Put Golf, Forgotten Past Museum, and The Kentucky Opry Country Music Show. There is much more, and if that is not enough Olde Paducah Historic City is only 20 miles west on I-24.
Please Note: If you have problems with your reservation at the State Park please contact Mr. Pollitte.
