Pendleton County is located in the beautiful rolling hills of Northern Kentucky about half way between Cincinnati, Ohio to the north and Lexington, Kentucky to the south. It is spread over 280 square miles and has an abundance of hunting, fishing and boating opportunities. The county is bounded by the Ohio River to the northeast and the Licking River flows northward through its entire length forming spectacularly scenic views of the Licking River Valley.
Pendleton County is also home to Kincaid Lake State Park. Kincaid 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. Falmouth, our county seat, is located where the Main and South Licking Rivers come together. The City of Butler also lies on the Licking River, 10 miles north of Falmouth.
