Deep in the heart of the Daniel Boone National Forest, Cumberland Falls State Resort Park is home to renowned Cumberland Falls, a stunning 125-foot wide waterfall cascading over a boulder-rich gorge, revered as the Niagara of the South, and featuring the rare moonbow (a rainbow created by moonlight) — one of only two in the world.
Featuring historic DuPont Lodge, Cumberland Falls State Resort Park offers 51 rooms, 25 cottages, the Riverview Restaurant and gift shop, a 50-site campground, event shelter, and conference and meeting rooms with additional catering options. Experience the paddle-guided Rainbow Mist Ride to the base of Cumberland Falls (the guide does all the paddling so great for all ages), authentic gem mining, a great educational experience, and the historical 1937 Pinnacle Knob Fire Tower with its sweeping lookout vantage point. Twenty miles of hiking trails to numerous waterfalls, fishing, planned recreation and naturalist activities, seasonal guided rafting trips, kayaking, horseback riding, and an outdoor pool add to the many recreational activities offered at the park. This state resort park is a short half-hour drive to the General Burnside Island State Park Golf Course.
