Lake Cumberland is one of the top vacation destinations in the eastern United States, and is considered the nation’s number one house boating destination. Other great activities include skiing, jet skiing, tubing, fishing, and leisure boating. The lake is famous for its striped bass fishing; the state record 58 pound striped bass was caught right here at Lake Cumberland. Your catch for the day could also include largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, catfish, and walleye. Plus if you can’t catch it for supper there are several eateries in the area like Sonny’s BBQ(one of my favorites).
Lake Cumberland is one of the ten largest man-made lakes in the country. Located 70 miles south of Lexington and 45 miles west of Somerset, this scenic lake covers over 63,000 acres with more than 1,200 miles of federally protected shoreline. If you enjoy the great outdoors here is an ideal spot for all types of water sports, camping, hiking and more.
Towns near Lake Cumberland are as follows: Jamestown, Russell Springs, Cumberland City, Monticello, Mill Springs, and Somerset. So come see us; ya hear!
CEDAR CREEK LAKE!
Cedar Creek Lake is the second largest state-controlled lake in Kentucky containing 784 acres of surface area/ watershed catchment area totaling approx. 14,000 acres (with Lake Malone being the largest). Cedar Creek Lake was created with the trophy fish in mind and much was done to insure a flourishing fish habitat. Such as leaving all trees and brush for the future lake's many species of fish so they could create a happy home. In areas without trees and brush, cement-filled buckets with arrays of 5-foot-long wooden sticks protruding out, packaging tarps, anchored downed trees, and other various fish habitat improvement structures were placed to fill in these bald areas. Developments around Cedar Creek Lake will include a marina and a public beach (no completion date is known at this time).
• Watershed: 14,000 acres (5,700 ha), primarily agricultural: 45% pastureland, 35% woodland, and 19% cropland. Cedar Creek Lake features a larger than usual 300-foot (91 m) buffer zone to prevent private land encroachment problems.

Lincoln County is located in South Central Kentucky in the southern part of the ring of Knobs around the Bluegrass region. It includes the headwaters of the Green River. The population was 24,742 in the 2010 census. Its county seat is Stanford & the county is named for American Revolutionary War General Benjamin Lincoln.
Lincoln County, organized in 1780, was one of three counties formed out of the original Kentucky County, which then constituted the westernmost part of Virginia. The other counties were Fayette and Jefferson. In 1792 the three counties were separated from Virginia and became the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the 15th state.
According to the 2000 census, the county has a total area of 336.47 square miles (871.5 km2), of which 336.26 square miles (870.9 km2) (or 99.94%) is land and 0.21 square miles (0.54 km2) (or 0.06%) is water.
The William Whitley House, also known as Sportsman's Hill, stands proudly today as a monument to pioneer ingenuity and resourcefulness. It was the first brick home and circular racetrack built west of the Alleghany Mountains, completed in 1794 by William Whitley and his wife Esther. This horse racetrack had clay turf and was raced counter-clock wise unlike the British tracks of the day. William Whitley was a great solider and Kentuckian who gave his life in battle for his family and his state. Whitley was dubbed the "Guardian of Wilderness Road," and his home was a popular gathering spot for early Kentuckians, including George Rogers Clark and Daniel Boone.
The Battle of Perryville: On October 8, 1862, cannon explosions shattered the rural peace of this tranquil countryside and the death moans of many young soldiers could be heard. Perryville became the site of the most destructive Civil War battle in the state of Kentucky which left more than 7,600 killed, wounded or missing. This was the South’s last serious attempt to gain possession of Kentucky.
The battlefield is one of the most unaltered Civil War sites in the nation; today the site is virtually the same as the soldiers saw on that fateful day in 1862. A self-guided walking tour on the battlefield interprets battle events. This is one of the stops along Kentucky's Lincoln Heritage Trail.
