Welcome to Pendleton County!
" We are Committed to Serving the People of Pendleton County"
Pendleton County, the "Land of Meandering Rivers and Rolling Hills" lies snuggled among the lush green hillsides of Northern Kentucky, halfway between Cincinnati, Ohio and Lexington, Kentucky. In Pendleton County you can enjoy the best of both worlds. There are plenty of activities and events to attend in an area that makes it easy for one to just get away from it all.
Wide lazy curves in the Licking River crisscross the landscape forming beautiful scenic overlooks of rich fertile valleys. This area has wonderful accommodations for the tourist who wants to contemplate the beauty of nature, breathe clean air and take life easy.
Our county seat is nestled between the Main Licking and the South Licking rivers which offer great recreational opportunities including canoe trips and smallmouth bass fishing. Pendleton County is home to Kincaid Lake State Park. The State Park has 850 acres to explore and offers camping, golfing, swimming and fishing with more pounds of largemouth bass per acre than any other lake in the state.
When you visit Pendleton County you will find a rural life style with caring people, a hometown atmosphere, an area rich in historical sites to see, friendly business climate, excellent education system and numerous churches.
