Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, KY

On our recent trip to the Cumberland Gap, TN area, after we toured that area, we headed west to visit Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. This beautiful state park is located in the Daniel Boone National Forest. We stayed in Dupont Lodge (pictured above) and had a delicious seafood buffet in the 125-seat Riverview Restaurant.

Here is a picture of the Cumberland River ---above the falls. Since we were there on September 25, there weren't many Autumn colors in that area yet. But it was still a beautiful state park.

Here is a picture of Cumberland Falls... Known as the "Niagara of the South", the waterfall forms a 125-foot wide curtain that plunges 7 stories into a boulder-strewn gorge below. Isn't it beautiful????

Here is George standing at one of the overlooks at Cumberland Falls.

We are now looking down-river from the falls. Cumberland River winds its way through the park, and there are so many things available for people to do while there (white-water rafting, fishing, nature trails, horse stables, swimming, and planned recreation opportunities). Besides the 51-room lodge, there are cabins available for rent, along with camping.

You know how much I love waterfalls.... Even though we had seen this one before, I never tire of seeing it again -and again. If you enjoy being outdoors and if you love seeing a beautiful waterfall, you will love being at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. It is located in southeastern Kentucky just west of Interstate 75.

You won't want to miss tomorrow's blog for a couple of fabulous pictures we took at Cumberland Falls.... SO---come back soon. Okay???????

Have a wonderful Thursday. We'll be out blowing, raking, and mowing leaves in our yard this weekend. Wanna come and join us????????
