Lindsey Wilson's main campus is located on more than 78 partially wooded acres on a hilltop in Columbia, which is in the Kentucky Heartland - a region synonymous with outdoor recreation, camping, boating and hiking. Lindsey Wilson is near several major Kentucky tourist attractions: Lake Cumberland, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world; Mammoth Cave, one of the Seven Wonders of the World; Green River Lake and Reservoir; and Cumberland Falls, Kentucky's highest waterfall and the only spot in the Western Hemisphere that produces a "moonbow."

Columbia, the county seat of Adair County, has a population of about 4,500. Adair County's primary industry is agriculture and light manufacturing. Columbia offers students a variety of shops, restaurants, churches and a nostalgic one-screen movie theater located on its downtown square within walking distance from campus. It also provides an appealing small-town charm, yet is only a one-hour drive from Bowling Green, Kentucky; a two-hour drive from Louisville or Lexington, Kentucky; or a two-hour drive from Nashville, Tennessee.
