This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Rough River Lake in Breckinridge, Grayson and Hardin Counties, Kentucky with the following interesting stats carved into it:
- Rough River Lake is a 5,100 acre reservoir in Breckinridge, Grayson and Hardin counties in Kentucky.
- It was impounded from the Rough River in 1959 by the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Rough River Lake Dam is a 132-foot-high earthen dam impounding a maximum capacity of 334,400 acre-feet. It is the primary attraction of Rough River Dam State Resort Park.
Interesting factoid: Rough River Lake is very centrally located with the U. S. In fact, visitors often say “it's located within 500 miles of about 1/2 the US population!" Not sure if that is exactly true but Louisville KY is very centrally located - and the lake is about 90 minutes south of Louisville!
(Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
