We rented a one bedroom Cabin. It is fully outfitted with stove, refrigerator, microwave, two TVs wifi, screened in porch, Fire pit, coffee pot and all cooking utensils. The cabins are ac/ heat as well. The bed was a king size and was very comfortable. You can bring your own food or eat at the Lodge or other restaurants in... More

We had such a fun time that we will be coming back. We rented a house boat and stayed with ten friends. I recommend it!

It's a scenic drive we enjoyed on our drive to Rowana landing restaurant and I can imagine would be great during the fall if you like seeing the fall colors. I will go back to explore it more.

First time visiting Lake Cumberland without staying on a houseboat. We opted to camp at the State Resort and it was an excellence choice. Great staff and very clean.

The lodge is a nice size, not to big, not to small, great view of the lake. The road back to the lodge is like 5 miles long. Rooms have been updated and are clean.

This place is awesome and beautiful. The marina is very cool, has lots of water rentals, and are reasonable priced. The scenery around the lake is great and there is so many places to go and see. I hope that next time I return we can rent a houseboat and enjoy more of the hidden gems of this place.

During a recent family vacation to Lake Cumberland, we took time out to visit the park. It is lovely & well worth the visit. Be sure to check out the gift store because they have nice shirts at very reasonable prices.

We stayed at the park in May. The park was almost empty which added to the peacefulness of the park. The resort hotel based around the marina was relatively high end, although the resturant was extremely poor. Just a note, this resturant does not serve alcohol. In contrast parts if the RV park seemed to be occupied by semi permanent... More
