We just returned from the Lake Cumberland State Resort in Jamestown, KY. We stayed at the Lure Lodge. Every room has a beautiful view. Lake Cumberland is a huge man made lake and is super clean. The hotel provides shuttle service to and from the marina for free. We rented a basic pontoon boat for $25 an hour. About the... More

Back at Lake Cumberland, this time in the Lure Lodge instead of a cabin. The pros of staying in the lodge instead of a cabin are the convince of the restaurant, the indoor pool, the game room, daily housekeeping and the view. The cons not as must privacy as in the cabin. We were able to hear the conversations of... More

We stayed for a week in a one bedroom cabin and much to my surprise, it was very nice! Knowing the cabins are old, I was expecting everything inside to be old/dusty/dirty. The cabin had been well kept - it looked like the wood varnish had been stripped and redone on the wood inside, walls and outside recently painted, newer... More

The view was great. The beds were uncomfortable had a hard time sleeping all three nights. The food was just ok in the restaurant but a little on the high side for what you got. The food at the restaurant on the Docks was great and a better deal. Over all we had a great time on this vacation. A... More

My family and I recently took a trip back to my home state of Kentucky. We stayed in a 2 bedroom/2 bath cottage in Lake Cumberland Resort. The cottage was very cozy, had all the linens, and kitchen supplies we needed. The wi fi worked very well too, just call the front desk for the password. Our smoke alarm went... More

My wife had occasion to stay here on business. The kids and I joined for a 'mini-vacation'. She'd been here before, this was the rest of our first time. I can tell you the five mile journey to the resort can be hair raising. You will see cautionary sign indicating you should keep your speed at 25 mph. Not a... More

Just got back from Lake Cumberland. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. There is not a bad room at the resort! They all overlook the lake and most, if not all have balconies. We were entertained in the evening by the very friendly raccoons and deer...all looking for handout from the guests! They have bird feeds that are... More

Two things work against this being a truly amazing place. The seasonality of it only being a summer destination and it being a State Park. They simply don't have the budget to bring it up to the level it has to potential to become. Having said all that, it still has special qualities that keep people coming back. That and... More

Lake Cumberland State Resort is a awesome place to unwind and relax for the weekend. They have a pool, mini golf, Frisbee golf, and horse back riding. There is something for everyone in the family here.

We have been going there for over 27 years and the property has declined to the point that we will not return! the exterior of the lodge and the grounds are in terrible condition! The restaurant's buffet food is unsafe to eat as many of the vegetables and some of the meats are barely warm! We have notified the health... More
