Burnside, Kentucky: Outdoor Adventure on Lake Cumberland
Lake Cumberland is this small town's worthy centerpiece. You can boat, jet ski, and fish for smallmouth bass and crappies on its 63,000 acres, which are skirted by dense forestation that extends to Daniel Boone National Forest. Hiking and biking are popular on the surrounding trails. Visit General Burnside Island State Park to tee off on an 18-hole golf course surrounded by rolling hills.
