Corbin is a city in Whitley and Knox counties in the southeastern portion of the U.S. state of Kentucky. The urbanized area around Corbin extends into Laurel County; this area, known as North Corbin, is not incorporated into the city limits, due to a state law prohibiting cities from being in more than two counties. Much of the North Corbin area is served by the city's public services, however. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 7,742, with 17,558 living in the "urban cluster" that includes Corbin.

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.
