Hidden in the hills of Northern Kentucky, Treasure Lake is Kentucky’s largest pay fishing lake and gives a serene natural setting for fishing and recreation. It is a family owned business operating for 34 years now in Petersburg, KY in Boone County, a short drive away from most in the Cincinnati Tri-state region off of I-275.
On site we feature many natural and man made features for recreation:
- 12 acre pay fishing lake with trails around most of it
- Forested hillsides with rustic, not primitive, campsites
- 3000 sq foot bar with beer and a 1500 sq ft patio off of that. Rentals for events are possible such as outdoor weddings, birthdays, etc
- Organic, local foods farm: Dark Wood Farm
- Ecologically Stewarded Forest and watershed
- Music Events and Educational Opportunities and Gatherings, guided tours

Address: 2590 Lawrenceburg Ferry Road, Petersburg, KY exit 11 I-275 in between Lawrenceburg, IN and Hebron, KY
The property is 60 acres of land that holds a 12 acre lake with an irregular shaped coastline and varying depths. If there was a ranking category for fishing lakes it would be measured as difficult as the shape of the lake requires you to move around the lake to find the right spot depending on the fishing conditions of the day. Furthermore, forested hillsides surround the lake and create the ambiance of being immersed in an area that is remote and secluded. However, Hebron, Kentucky, Lawrenceburg, Indiana, and Cincinnati, Ohio are all very accessible with the later being only 22 miles away. On
site we manage our natural resources organically to enhance the natural capitol that is abundant here as we steward the water body, the forest, and the flat fields that form Dark Wood Farm.
We focus on stocking the following fish at Treasure Lake:
- Largemouth Bass
- Black Crappie
- Catfish, mainly Channel
We are not a large catfish pay lake, rather a blend to accommodate for all. Night fishing registration ends at 10:30 pm and runs until 6:00 am. For night fishing, camping is encouraged but not necessary.
