Our Counties

Beauty is everywhere you turn, in the people, the farms, hills, cliffs, lake, trails and sightseeing is evident.  Bath County has much to offer in outdoor recreation and businesses with the Daniel Boone National Forest and the 8,270 acre Cave Run Lake Recreation Areas.

Cave Run Lake was built in the early 1970's and extends into Bath County.  This man made lake is 8,720 acres abundant of Muskie and is one of the most beautiful and serene lakes solely because it's natural. Located along Interstate 64 in Cave Run Lake country, Owingsville sits as the gateway to Kentucky's idyllic bluegrass region. The Bath County Memorial Library on Main Street is viewed as the area’s cultural heart and is a popular destination for events and tourists.
