Eddyville Reviews

Eddyville is a sweet, simple, small town in Kentucky. It's actually a hot spot for tourists who like boats, with the lake and the water park. I definitely recommend for those who want to spend their summers in the south, and not have to spend a fortune!

Eddyville is a quintessential small town. While it may not be for young adults looking to further themselves and their careers, it does provide an excellent backdrop for raising a family or settling down into retirement.
