Stevens said that the organization includes Kentucky and Tennessee communities from the entire lakes region. This includes Trigg, Lyon, Livingston, McCracken, Marshall, Calloway and Christian counties in Kentucky and Henry, Stewart, Benton and Montgomery counties in Tennessee. The USDA Forest Service, which runs LBL, is also involved in the group.
“It’s a great organization to help increase tourism visitation to our area,” Stevens said Monday. “We have goals of trying to create programs and opportunities to bring tourists to the lakes region in hopes that they will visit each of the local communities.”
Stevens said that the coalition’s members work together to make tourists aware of all the antiques, restaurants, museums, campgrounds, marinas and other attractions the area has to offer. He said that they have also talked to charter bus companies about packaging trips to the region that would last several nights.
