Kentucky Map Extent

In this map, you will find major rivers, reservoirs, and lakes of Kentucky like Cave Run Lake, Lake Cumberland, and Kentucky Lake. In general, rivers in Kentucky flow into the Gulf of Mexico.

Kentucky has many lakes and rivers that are perfect for fishing, swimming, or just relaxing on the water. The Bluegrass State is unique because its entire northern border is the Ohio River. Also, the Cumberland River is a 668-mile long river which flows through both Kentucky and Tennessee.

By far, the largest lake in the state is Kentucky Lake. With an area of over 160,000 acres, it nearly triples the area of the next biggest lake which is Lake Barkley. Whether you’re exploring the state or your own backyard, there are plenty of things to do to get active.

  1. FYI only your “Lakes and Rivers” map seems to actually include the Fulton County exclave of “Kentucky Bend,” which is part of Kentucky.
