Purchasing Land

[KY / TN] I recently bought a house in my hometown in KY. I'm a single guy with a pretty good job, but not rich by any means. I would like to start looking at buying a lakefront lot in East TN, but definitely don't have the money in the bank to fork out cash for it. I would like to finance it, and possibly use it as a retirement / vacation spot later in my life. Are banks willing to lend to someone like me to purchase this land that will likely sit empty until i'm closer to retirement? (I'm 40 right now) I've never purchased land and since I already have a mortgage, how does that work?

**Edit – as an FYI i have excellent credit (829) and zero credit card debt or other nonsense debt.
