Welcome to McKee

The rugged wilderness of the Daniel Boone National Forest rolls out for miles and miles in all directions, and McKee, Ky., sits in the heart of it all.

You would never suspect that it’s only an hour and a half away from Lexington, offering an easy escape for city dwellers.

In McKee you can hike, bike and fish to your heart’s content, explore Kentucky’s longest and wildest trail, experience the thrill of a rushing waterfall, or sit quietly beside a bubbling creek in the forest.
