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

Lake Cumberland is a beautiful treasure, sadly the people taking reservations do not understand the length required for a 5th wheel! First reservation blunder was to tell me I could not add two days to my stay, after looking on line I saw that there were plenty of open sites. So I called back and the reservationist said I could...

I stayed at Lure Lodge at Lake Cumberland for an overnight work conference. The Lodge was okay. Everything was great-to me-for a one night stay. The scenary is beautiful! The staff is very friendly. The lodge rooms were clean but still kind of not so clean. Seemed like no one has stayed in my room in a long time, dust,... More

Spent Friday and Saturday night of Memorial Day weekend at the lodge. It is definitely nothing fancy but it gets the job done. It was clean, the people are very friendly. We of course spent most our time on the lake. Breakfast at the lodge was good. It's just like any other state park property outdated and needs funds. Would... More

I have stayed here on three occasions and there is always something wrong in the dining room. Busy weekend with no buffet, busy weekend and little wait staff, etc. I love the park, rooms are very clean, pool is nice but dining service is horrible.

Before you choose to stay at a state park lodge, you must ask yourself....are you a traveler or a tourist? Either are fine, you just need to be honest with yourself and know. A traveler, travels for the experiences...a tourist is there to see the sites and move on. Some trips you might be both and some times just one... More
