Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, Corbin

4.4
#4 of 49 in Nature in Kentucky
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.

  • Beautiful falls! (I left that photo out to let you enjoy it fully upon your visit!) The park itself is rather stunning. It was sad and humbling to see the garbage collected on the sides of the waterfall. The bathrooms weren't fantastic, but the park had a surprisingly nice and diverse gift shop. They also offered hot food, which I wasn't expecting. Would love to see the place again on a warmer day!
  • Each year I take a group of friends to a different state park that I've not been to yet for a men's weekend. This year we decided to head to Cumberland Falls...what a great weekend! The weather was perfect for early March, sunny and temps in the 50's. We stayed in a deluxe cabin which provided ample room for 6 of us. We stopped in Corbin and stocked up for the weekend, and we found the kitchen well stocked with cooking utensils, plates and the like. It turned out, to my surprise, that we had a perfect weekend to see the moonbow at the falls both nights we were at the park. Saturday presented a terrific day of hiking; trails were available on both sides of the river, though we hiked off trail a good bit with no problem. This is definitely one of the best resort parks in Kentucky! Give it a try!
  • Needs some simple upgrades such as charging stations for cell phones and tablets. There is free WiFi but ran a little slow. I kept losing connection from our room on the 3rd floor. The room was super clean. The people were super nice. The buffet was excellent. We will be going back.
  • Since leaving NY with all its upstate history and beauty we were looking for outdoor activities in our new home state of Ky. We've been here several times and even brought a family friend visiting from NY here. This is a great place to be with nature with some great hiking nearby. We've hiked the Eagle Falls trail and thoroughly enjoyed it. There are plenty of activities.
  • We had a tremendous view of the Cumberland river at sunrise. Hotel has been updated, rooms are very clean, the restaurant buffet is good. Wireless coverage is spotty at the far end rooms of the Hotel. What makes this place special is the 1930s construction of stone and logs. Its just beautiful in the lobby with a fire going in that monster stone fireplace. Leather sofas and chairs are comfy by the fire. Step back in time and enjoy this jewel!
