With idealistic views characteristic of the Lake Cumberland region, Wilgreen Lake sits a few miles off I-75. Completed in 1966, the lake is designated ‘idle speed only’. Fishing include largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, green sunfish, white crappie, channel catfish, white sucker, and common carp. Wilgreen Lake Marina is located close to I-75, off of Exit 87. Turn west off I-75, drive 1.6 miles, and turn left onto Curtis Pike. Drive 1.8 miles and turn left on Wilgreen Lake Rd. It is about .5 miles to the lake from there.
Wilgreen Lake hosts a variety of fishing tournaments. If you would like to set up a tournament, please contact the Parks & Historic Properties Department at 859-624-0013.
