Welcome to Lyon County, Kentucky!
Welcome to Lyon County, located in Western Kentucky on the shores of Kentucky and Barkley Lakes. We still retain the old charm of a small rural farming community but with the impoundment of 2 lakes and the establishment of The Land Between The Lakes Recreational Area we have become a tourism, vacation and retirement community. Lyon County's permanent residents only number about 9,000 but residency can easily reach 50,000 during the summer months and holidays.
We are proud of Lyon County. Come visit us and discover why.
