Yes, there are and they are down by the lake. My friend's cousin from Big Bear Creek in Top Ridge, Ky said her Uncle and his coon dog got swallowed up. He was with another guy who said he tried like ?? to free him but they slowly went down until only the tip of the dog's nose and his bald spot could be seen. Be careful if you are exploring these places.

The factors of Quicksand in this area are very interesting. The problem is that Central to Eastern KY. Is mostly Limestone. So, instead of getting the Quicksand areas we get sink holes. I believe Sink holes and Quicksand are related.The problem is with all the limestone and cave systems in this part of the State. The quicksand really doesn't have much of a chance for remaining a pool.

before anyone says anything, I have lived around Laurel Lake for 87 + years, hunted and fished every inch of the ground before the lake was built somewhere in the late 70's. no quicksand......probably lots of unmarked graves now under water, but no quicksand
