(4.4/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

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.

  • Very nice park. The restaurant in the lodge was surprisingly great when we were there. The servers were courteous and the food was delicious. The trail we walked was well established, but rough with rocks and roots. A little more effort than a leisurely walk, but still fun. We stayed in a woodland room. We were satisfied with the room. It was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small, and the heater and fan were on the same switch which made it extremely uncomfortable at times. Other things we dislikes were no extra pillows, and a lamp that was nowhere near an outlet. Try the banana pudding.
  • Lovely hiking, camping, and scenery. Campsite was perfect for us space wise, but the oak tree pelted us with acorns. The fire pit was slanted, and therefore the grill was not usable. The picnic tables in the camping area are falling apart and need to be updated. It seems there was quite a bit of updating/construction being done. No soap in the women's restroom, but we had our own. By opening season next year, I assume most of these issues will have been dealt with. Overall, it was a wonderful weekend!
  • Amazing!!!! My husband and I visited Cumberland Falls on our honeymoon and I was absolutely blown away by all the natural beauty and landscapes. The hiking trails are a lot of fun and the waterfall itself is gorgeous. This is a beautiful park to visit and spend some time in nature admiring it for all its beauty. We plan on making a yearly trip to the Falls since we had such an amazing time. We also spent an evening in the cabins at the park. They are the cutest cabins ever, nestled in the woods with the sounds of the falls in the distance. It was very romantic. We enjoyed a meal at the Dupont Lodge restaurant which was fantastic. I enjoyed the best catfish I have ever eaten. Throughout our stay at the park, all the staff was extremely friendly and all areas of the park we very clean. I would definitely recommend planning a trip here. Its perfect for families or couples. Perhaps my favorite part was the horseback riding. Our trail guide, Joe, was very friendly and gave us some good driving tips for the area.
  • The park is nice, simple, and has stunning views of wildlife and scenery. The drive to the park is scenic but is also long. More importantly, once you have experienced it little (outside of its natural beauty) begs for a return visit.
  • We stayed in cabin 522 for our 2nd honeymoon and had an amazing time. The cabin was clean and comfortable. We couldn't believe that you could be so close to others and get privacy but we did. Honestly, we did our site seeing day one and hunkered down in the cabin for the next 2 days and it was perfect. The gift shop staff and house keeping staff was very helpful and friendly. The only reason I took a star off was A) We didn't get checked in until after 5 p.m. and B) While the resort restaurant view cannot be missed as it is simply breathtaking, I suggest eating somewhere else and having only coffee and dessert there. The food is vastly over priced for the quality and the service was not great.
