McCreary County is located in southeastern Kentucky at the south end of the Daniel Boone National Forest and the north end of the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. We also share Cumberland Falls with neighboring Whitley County and have a northeast access to Lake Cumberland.

McCreary County was the 120th, and the last, county in Kentucky to be formed in March 1912 and named for then Governor James B McCreary. In our 100 year history, McCreary County has been influenced greatly by the timber and coal industries, which shape our history, heritage and culture. McCreary County is also largely undeveloped with the US Forest Service and Park Service owning much of our lands. This allows locals and visitors to experience nature in a unique way. Our cost of living and our taxes are relatively low, our people are welcoming and our landscape is scenic and rustic.
