Lake Cumberland, Kentucky Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Lake Cumberland, one of the largest man-made lakes east of the Mississippi, covers over 63,000 acres and has over 1,200 miles of shoreline. The lake is part of a state resort park in south central Kentucky and a Mecca for water sports enthusiasts and avid fishermen (and women).

Four marinas serve boaters with boat rentals ranging from fishing craft to upscale houseboats. Lake Cumberland's many coves make it a number one houseboating destination in the U.S. and some of the rentals you can find here are basically luxury cruises. Land-based accommodations include Lure Lodge, perched high above the lake, with dining and an indoor pool. Pumpkin Creek Lodge and cottages are also available in the park.

Nature trails, riding stables and a nine-hole golf course are a few of the park's other attractions. Fishing is always fantastic, with a lush variety of fish species, all of which swim the lake in great abundance. Beyond sturgeon, walleye, bream and trout, there are five species of bass at Cumberland, including the Kentucky bass. Record-size catches are not uncommon.

Located at Jamestown, KY about 90 miles south of Lexington, KY. Take US 27 to KY 34 to US 127.
