The Sawyer Boat Ramp provides access to the Cumberland River and Lake Cumberland.
The boat ramp is useable but only with small watercraft due to the low water levels.
Cliffside Trail #519 (2.75 miles) runs along the Cumberland River from Sawyer Boat Ramp to Noe's Boat Ramp.
Non-native plants and animals are invading our lakes and streams. These aquatic hitchhikers:
- Ruin boat engines and jam equipment;
- Harm game fish and native species;
- Raise operating costs of water and power plants.
