Cordell Hull Lake is situated among rolling hills covered in a mix of shady maple, hickory, oak, beech and chestnut trees. Wildlife is abundant around the lake. Whitetail deer, wild turkey, quail, squirrels, rabbits and a wide variety of waterfowl are commonly seen throughout the area. Anglers enjoy fishing for white bass, rockfish, largemouth bass, catfish, shad and crappie.

The 12,000-acre lake stretches 72 miles upstream and boasts 381 miles of shoreline. The lake was named after Cordell Hull, a politician born in the foothills of the Cumberland Mountains. Hull is best known for being the longest running secretary of state in American history, serving for 11 years.

Pets are prohibited in day use area due to health department restrictions with recreation areas with beaches.
