The Big South Fork (BSF) Wild River corridor of the Cumberland River reaches from the Tennessee border at BSF River to Blue Heron. Most of the Big South Fork Wild River is included in the Kentucky section of the 125,000-acre Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. The Big South Fork has been described as one of the most popular canoe-camping runs in the southeastern Unites States. See our Wild Rivers program page for information on what it means to be a Kentucky Wild River.
