Places To Stay

From spacious state park resort lodges, secluded mountainside cabins, charming bed-and-breakfasts and national hotel chains to scenic RV parks, campgrounds and houseboats, there are unique places to stay that suit any taste, need or budget in The Kentucky Wildlands.

Get away to one of the region’s nine gorgeous state resort parks and you will enjoy access to all park amenities, including fun, family-oriented events and activities all year long. Wake up to breathtaking cliffside views at the countless cabin and cottage rentals in stunning locations, such as the Red River Gorge. You’ll find most major hotel and motel chains, as well as historic, locally owned hotels and B&B options, such as the Grand Victorian Cumberland Manor Bed & Breakfast of Middlesboro (established 1890).

Make yourself at home at RV parks that feature full utility hook-ups, pull-thru sites, and close proximity to shopping and attractions, such as the legendary Renfro Valley Performance Theatres beside the Renfro Valley RV Park. Campsites await throughout the Cumberland highlands and Appalachian Mountains, surrounded by dense forests or alongside lakes and rivers.

For water lovers, staying on a houseboat on Lake Cumberland, Laurel River Lake or Dale Hollow Lake may just be the ultimate way to spend a vacation.
