Lee County is located in the scenic Eastern Kentucky foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, 25 miles southeast of Natural Bridge State Park. This region is often call the Three Forks region, since Beattyville, our county seat, is where the North Fork, South Fork and Middle Fork meet to form the Kentucky River.
