Wayne County is in the “Heart of Lake Cumberland” and has more lake access than any other county. There is nothing quite like spending a summer vacation on the water. Make plans now to visit for a day, weekend, or a whole week and make memories that will last a lifetime.
When you need a break from the water, be sure to head in to Monticello every Saturday morning to visit the newly constructed Farmers’ Market located in historic downtown. Also, don’t forget Memorial Park. The park is located just minutes from downtown on Michigan Avenue and has 86 acres of tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball and softball fields, volleyball courts, miniature golf, playgrounds, walking trails, and plenty of shelter houses for a great family picnic.
Downtown Monticello is also home to the Wayne County Museum that contains many exhibits about Wayne County and Lake Cumberland. It is a must see for anyone interested in the history of the area. A trip to Lake Cumberland is not complete without visiting 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.
