FRANKFORT, Ky. – An expansion project for the parking area at Wildcat Creek Boat Ramp on Kentucky Lake is currently underway. Due to the ongoing construction, the ramp will close intermittently over the next four to six weeks.

While the project is currently scheduled for completion by Oct. 9, that date is subject to change depending on progress and the weather. For specific closure information, contact the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Public Land Information Center at 1-800-882-5263.

The expansion is expected to increase the number of spaces for vehicles with trailers from 35 to 70. An additional eight spaces are included in the project to provide parking for those anglers wishing to use the facility’s fishing pier.

The ramp is located in Calloway County, on the west side of the lake in the Blood River arm. Locals may also know the site as Thoroughbred Ramp.

Boaters have two other nearby public ramps to use while construction is underway on the Wildcat Creek Boat Ramp. These include Pacer Point, located at the end of Watersport Road in Calloway County, and the ramp at Kenlake State Park.  

The Tennessee Valley Authority is closing the ramp in cooperation with Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
