|Because of Corbin being located so near the Daniel Boone National
Forest and Cumberland Falls State Park, it offers vast opportunities
for outdoor enthusiasts, attracting nearly one million visitors
annually to view the famous moonbow. There is convenient access to
great fishing, boating and camping along the 212 miles of shoreline
on Laurel River Lake, just eleven miles from the city limits.
Corbin also is where Colonel Harlan
Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken, began his rise to world fame in
Corbin at Sanders Court, which is still serving his secret recipe
and is also a museum dedicated to his efforts.
