When you need a break from the water, be sure to head in to Monticello every Saturday morning for the Farmer’s Market or visit Memorial Park. The park has 86 acres of tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball and softball fields, volleyball courts, playgrounds for the kids and plenty of shelter houses for a great family picnic.
Downtown Monticello is also home to the Wayne County Museum with many exhibits about Wayne County and Lake Cumberland. It is a must see for anyone interested in the history of the area. Also, a visit to Lake Cumberland is not complete without visiting historic Mill Springs Mill and park. The park is operated by the Corps of Engineers and is a great place to spend a day off the water.
