Description
Cumberland Falls is magical. Nestled in the gentle hills of the Appalachian mountains in southeast Kentucky, the falls are known as the Niagra Falls of the south. But, they are even more than that. They are one of the few places in the world with a Moonbow that can be viewed on evenings with a full moon. The moonbow dates are posted on their website and these will be the busiest dates to visit the park. 

The campground is small, with only 49 sites, 21 electric and 28 for tents. Camping fees are about $30 per day. If you prefer to stay indoors, you may book a room at the Dupont Lodge. There is a restaurant on site, the Riverview Restaurant, with meals that taste like they were home cooked and lovely views. There is parking and the trails are easily accessible. 

In addition to the tranquility and mysticism of the falls and hills, you may want to toss out a fishing rod or simply wonder at the majesty of the scenery.  

If you are more adventurous, you may take on some white water rafting or find a nearby place for some horseback riding on a mountain trail. The area is hilly and can be damp so bring shoes with good grips and watch your step. There are 4.5 miles of trails over terrain that has been rated as moderate to strenuous. 

Dogs are allowed on the campground. Kentucky State Parks have standard rules for pets. You may bring no more than two pets with you. Dogs are only allowed in designated areas. You may not take your dog into the restaurant or on any trails that are marked as a nature preserve. Keep your dog on a 6-foot leash. If you plan to stay in the lodge, you will need to inform them of the dog at the time you make your reservation or be prepared to pay penalty fees upon your arrival.
