I really enjoy taking my kids here. There are a number of playgrounds with views of the lake. Tons of walking and biking trails. Kayaking and paddle boating. Fishing. Nature surrounds you here right in the middle of Elizabethtown, KY!

I love going to Freeman lake with my husband. We sit, talk and relax looking out at the water, it's very beautiful. You can feed the ducks and walk your dogs. Even walk on the five mile trail. Overall,it's lovely 😄

Wanted to have a romantic afternoon with my boyfriend so I suggested paddle boating. It really was a nice experience. HOWEVER, a few things to keep in mind. It's a workout! The pedals are not adjustable so if you're over 5'2", it will be somewhat...More
