The Eddyville Riverport was established in 1976 as the Lyon County Riverport Authority, with involvement from Lyon County, the City of Eddyville and the City of Kuttawa. In 2002, Lyon County and Kuttawa elected to cease participation with the Authority. The City of Eddyville, by articles of incorporation, formed the Eddyville Riverport and Industrial Development Authority (Eddyville), combining the industrial development authority and the port operation. The port operation is located adjacent to a natural harbor/bay at river mile 43 on the Cumberland River/Barkley Lake and is the only operating Kentucky public riverport on the Cumberland River. The population of the City of Eddyville in 2006 was 2,405, with a combined population of 21,189 for Lyon and Caldwell counties.
