Directions & Lake History/Factoid
Directions: The lake has two major highways that parallel its shorelines, KY State HWY 80 and 90. The Lake Cumberland Visitor Center is located at the Resource Manager's Office on Boat Dock Road, approximately four miles south of Somerset on U.S. Highway 27 at red light 29.

Lake History

Factoid: Located on the Cumberland River, Wolf Creek Dam holds back waters that create the 100-mile long reservoir known as Lake Cumberland, The Houseboat Capital of the World. The lake is the eighth largest in the United States and is a cherished vacation destination for millions of visitors each year. The lake is in close proximity to major highways and interstates, has breathtaking natural beauty, offers miles of open waters, provides hundreds of miles of secluded shoreline, and the surrounding communities and marinas maintain an abundance of full-service amenities making Lake Cumberland a true water-way get-away for visitors from all walks of life.
