In honor of Lakes Appreciation Month in July, the organizers of USA Today's 10Best Readers' Choice Awards are on the hunt for the best recreational lake in the United States. A panel of travel experts hand-picked their top 20 as nominees, and now voting is underway to crown a winner. Lake Cumberland joins some of the largest and most well-known lakes across the country — including Lake Placid, Lake Tahoe and Lake Michigan — in this contest, and as of June 29, ranks second!
