The Deepest Lake In Kentucky Is Actually A Lesser Known Outdoor Paradise

When you think about lakes in Kentucky, some of the large and popular ones probably come to mind. Most know of Lake Cumberland, Kentucky Lake, Dale Hollow, and other fun-filled, beautiful spots, but the Bluegrass State is actually home to 45 major lakes. And while you may already know that Kentucky Lake is the largest in the state, can you name the deepest lake in Kentucky? Herrington Lake is located just west of Harrodsburg and earns the title as the deepest. It also comes with a lot of history, a little controversy, and natural beauty that can make this a lesser-known outdoor paradise.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
