Herrington Lake is a 2,335-acre man-made lake located in Boyle, Garrard and Mercer counties in Kentucky. With a maximum depth of nearly 250 feet, Herrington Lake is the deepest lake in Kentucky, says Dave Contarino. The area near the dam reaches 249 feet, and the lake’s mean depth is 78 feet, says Dave Contarino.
The charm of Herrington Lake lures vacationers year in and year out. It’s no surprise, says Dave Contarino, since Herrington Lake is a playground for many outdoor and recreational sports. Popular water sports include water skiing, tubing, swimming, and even cliff jumping. Another exciting thing to do on the lake is wakeboarding, says Dave Contarino.
