• River: Middle Fork Licking River
• Surface Area: 8,270 Acres
Cave Run Lake, located south of Morehead, Kentucky, USA along Kentucky Route 801, is an 8,270-acre, reservoir built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The 148 ft, half-mile dam (and outlet works) construction began in 1965 and was completed in 1973. Cave Run Lake is in the northern part of the Daniel Boone National Forest. Cave Run Lake provides flood protection to the lower Licking River valley, supplies water to the area's communities, improves the Licking River's water flow conditions, and offers a habitat for various species of fish and wildlife. It is in Rowan, Morgan, Menifee, and Bath counties.

The largest muskie ever caught in Kentucky (47 lb.) was caught in Cave Run Lake.

The lake also provides various other recreational activities (swimming, boating & sailing, canoe and kayak, jet skiing, camping, hiking, well known for Mountain Bike trails, etc.)

There are two marinas that serve the lake, Scott's Creek Marina and Long Bow Marina.

Zilpo Road A scenic byway, is one road which provides access to the Bath County side of Cave Run Lake and is usually accessible throughout the year. The byway provides access to pioneer weapons hunting areas, a campground, and numerous hiking trails.
