Kentucky is famous for its beautiful countryside, as well as the spaciousness and freedom of movement that can be found. Until 1768, the Iroquois Indians lived here when the settlers came. Cumberland County is the thirty-second county of Kentucky, landing on the state records officially in 1799. The Cumberland River flows from one end to the other and that’s how it got the name Cumberland County. Isham Burk, who was a prominent citizen, settled along the bank of the river. In 1846 the settlement was incorporated as the City of Burkesville.

The charm of small town atmosphere is still around in Cumberland county and surrounding areas. The nature is pure and the wildlife is out there to explore. There are two big lakes in the area, Dale Hollow Lake and Lake Cumberland. Many species of fish like bass and trout are hiding in the fresh sparkling waters. The variety of the lakes, the Mighty Cumberland River and the beautiful hill, make this a popular place to visit and explore. This area is well known for its hiking, booting, horseback riding, kayaking, fishing and mountain biking.
