Legend Outfitters is a growing business in Lawrence County area. Their mission and desire is to showcase Lawrence County’s natural beauty and help build a platform for adventure tourism.

The Cove at Yatesville Lake has been steadily growing and is making an impact on tourism dollars brought to the area. Legend Outfitters is expanding its business to Lawrence County Park, Paintsville Lake, and servicing Paddlefest in Prestonsburg. Legend Outfitters supports Lawrence, Johnson, Floyd, and other surrounding counties in their efforts to gain Trial Town Classification.

Recreational trails and rivers can really help boost a community’s tourism traffic. A benefit of being a 'Trail Town' is to take advantage of the economic opportunity brought by the attraction of trails and rivers.

Jamie Smith part owner of Legend Enterprises relates, “It will help our community transform our town into a more inviting and memorable tourist destination as well as a better place for residents to live, work and play.”

“We have amazing natural resources we just need to polish them up a bit and look at our resources with a tourist's eye. We want the region to Re-Discover Lawrence County,”  Smith said.

Legend Outfitters will be hosting “Jaws on the Water” August 4th at dusk. At The Cove only at Yatesville Lake. Sponsored in part by Back Yard Movies. Admission is $3 per person. Bring your own float. If you can stay in the water the entire movie you will receive a bracelet, #isurvivedjawsonthewater!
