The landscape of Buckhorn Lake is truly a sight to behold. It’s as if the Kentucky River just busted through and carved these incredible valleys and green, winding hills, which are now affectionately known as the amazing Appalachian Mountains! You’ll only have to travel a short distance from Lexington to find this rugged and rural outback that surrounds the 1,230-acre Buckhorn Lake and the nearby Cumberland Plateau. If you drive down the main road for a bit, you’ll hit Buckhorn Lake State Resort Park, where you can dine, lodge, or camp out. During the day, you’ll want to get out in the woods, so bring your best-loved, broken-in hiking shoes. Paddle around the waters or simply sit on the shore and take in the unsurpassable views. Words could not do this wilderness justice, so you might want to start packin’ now. This out-of-the-way gem is just the right amount of quiet, fun, and beauty that will hit the spot and leave you breathless.
