Lake Cumberland, an iconic landmark in the heart of the state of Kentucky, stands as one of the world’s largest manmade lakes. Fed by the rolling waters of the Cumberland River and formed as a result of constructing the Wolf creek dam, Lake Cumberland has over 1,200 miles of coastline. Lake Cumberland is a vortex of water adventure with over 65,000 acres of water to explore. The first American settlers arrived in the area from New Jersey in 1798. Many of them established farms, stores and boarding houses that played an important role in the economy for more than 175 years. In the middle of the 20th century, precisely in 1952 when Lake Cumberland was built, the interest to live in the Lake Cumberland area was revitalized mainly by outdoor enthusiasts who discovered the value of Lake Cumberland's fishing spots, hiking trails and canoe routes. Much of the real estate in Lake Cumberland is located not far from some of the best fishing spots and near many attractions that are fun to explore including General Burnside Island State Park, and Pulaski County Park.
