Discover 671 hectares (1,657 acres) of natural beauty at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, which is named for its centerpiece, the 21 m (68 ft) falls. Called the "Niagra of the South," the falls are one of few places in the Western Hemisphere where you can see a moonbow on a full moon night. Contained within the Daniel Boone National Forest, this park is the perfect place to hike, bike, horseback ride, fish, or simply take in scenic vistas. Check the calendar on the park website to see if you'll have the chance to catch a moonbow during your visit. For an overnight stay, reserve a campsite, cabin, or room at the historical lodge.

Check the calendar to make sure you will be able to see the Moonbow. Bring a flashlight and patience. There are so many people. Parking is terrible. There is a small lot, and it fills up quickly. So, ... more »

This review applies to tent camping at the Ridgeline Campground. You should aim for site #19 which is a double tent site and makes all of the others look tiny. It is also positioned at the edge of the ridge which makes it feel more private. Site #20 is a decent runner-up. The bathroom and camp store building is dated compared to other parks in Tennessee and Georgia but it's adequate. The park is beautiful overall with many great natural features that don't require much of a walk from your car to see. We hiked many of the trails and were impressed by the good signage and trail blazes throughout the park. I recommend the Eagle Falls trail if you are of decent fitness level and are ready to climb some stairs. The rewards are stunning views of Cumberland Falls and a more secluded Eagle Falls. Go early to avoid crowds and enjoy the small swimming hole at the base of Eagle Falls.

Absolutely beautiful state park with scenic and challenging trails, a beautiful rustic lodge with varied accommodations (we stayed in the woodland rooms) and a very good on-site restaurant with delicious food (fried catfish was fantastic). Will definitely visit again, most likely in the autumn in order to witness the fall colors at their best. Would recommend to anyone as a must visit when in the area.

A great place (area) to spend a week. The falls are spectacular and powerful to watch. Nice shops visitor displays, etc. Large picnic areas near the falls (can't see falls from picnic areas). Near the park are: a waterpark nearby (Kentucky Splash), hiking, camping, rafting, and lake/boating. A really great outdoors area for the whole family.

This is a very nice park. There are many trails to walk that are both easy and difficult. Lots of hills so be advised. The falls are very nice to see and there is an easy to get to platform to see them though it is only accessible by foot because of stairs.

We absolutely love coming to Cumberland Falls State Resort Park! The lodge rooms are okay but we really enjoy camping. The hiking trails are top notch, not too long but just the right amount of elevation change to keep it challenging. The lodge restaurant is a good retreat after a hot day of hiking. The buffet is pretty satisfying!
