Western Kentucky Lake is Hidden Gem with Incredible White Sandy Beach and Crystal Clear Water – See Photos
I have said it before and I will say it again, Kentucky is one of the most beautiful states in the midwest. The Bluegrass State holds a natural beauty that is vast, wild, and unbridled. I'm so happy that I found my way to this amazing and magnificent state.
Everywhere you look, Kentucky is breathtaking. If nature is your jam, this is the state for you. I have tried to see as much of it as I can, but in the thirteen years since I made Kentucky my home, I have only scratched the surface.
I discover new places all the time. Recently, I saw a Facebook post, in research for another article, about a lake and a little know Kentucky state park I have never heard of. It's an incredible hidden gem that I want to share with you.
