Recreation and Tourism

Muhlenberg County Kentucky offers loads of adventure and fun for all ages and all tastes. Just a few of our area attractions include:

Lake Malone, spanning 788 acres in southern Muhlenberg County, provides water recreation such as swimming, boating, and fishing. The lake and the surrounding hardwood forest form Lake Malone State Park.

Dogwood Lake and Camping Resort provides a white sand beach with a 280 foot full loop water slide, campsites, and an adjacent 18-hole golf course.

Two other area courses provide destinations for the avid golfer Central City Country Club and Greenville Country Club.

The Muhlenberg County Rail Trail is a six-mile walking, biking, and fitness trail between Greenville and Central City.

The Paradise Park in Powderly is a replica of a 1920’s coal-mining town and features the birthplace home of the late Merle Travis. There is a picnic shelter in the park and deep shade for your family outings. It is also the site of Pickin’ in the Park, a free Friday night concert featuring local musicians from June through September.

Muhlenberg County is home to the world’s largest wholesale gemstone dealer, the House of Onyx, located in Greenville.

Central City and Greenville both offer rodeos, outdoor recreation, antique car shows, downtown music and concerts, food festivals, museums and art galleries.

Home of the famous Everly Brothers, Central City features a number of musical attractions including the nearby birthplace of famous “pickin'” pioneer Merle Travis and an Everly Brothers landmark.

Don’t miss Luke’s Town & Country Flea Market, one of Kentucky’s largest, open every Monday and Tuesday.

Fishing and wildlife hunting areas are also very plentiful in this County.
