Paintsville Lake State Park sits on the shores of one of the most scenic lakes in eastern Kentucky. With steep cliffs and wooded coves along the shoreline, this lake provides 1,140 acres of boating, skiing, and fishing pleasure. The lake has a full service marina where you can rent a fishing, pontoon, or houseboat. After a day on the lake, relax on one of the 32 developed camp sites around the lake. The mountain homeplace sits adjacent to the lake and offers visitors a look at life from the late 19th century. Paintsville Lake State Park is a true mountain gem.
