Posted: Updated:
LAND BETWEEN THE LAKES, Ky. -

The U.S. Forest Service says Golden Pond Visitor Center, the planetarium and the elk and bison prairie at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area will be closed Friday through Sunday due to weather. 

Those areas are closed in anticipation of the winter storm predicted for Thursday night and Friday. The forest service says it will evaluate conditions on Monday to determine when to reopen. 

The forest service warns that Woodlands Trance National Scenic Byway, which runs north to south through LBL, isn't treated after snow and ice events. It advises against driving through that area during and after the storm.

For more information, you can call toll-free at 1-800-LBL-7077 or local at 270-924-2000.
