    Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, near Corbin, KY, is a gem for anyone looking to immerse themselves in nature. Known as the "Niagara of the South," this park offers a stunning waterfall that's a must-see. The campground itself is cozy, with a mix of tent, RV, cabin, glamping, and yurt accommodations.

    One of the standout features here is the electric hookups available at most sites, which is a nice perk if you're bringing an electric vehicle. The campground also has drinking water, showers, and toilets, making it a comfortable spot for a weekend getaway. Fires are allowed, and you can purchase firewood on-site, so no need to haul your own.

    For families, there's a playground to keep the kids entertained, and a small on-site store for any essentials you might have forgotten. If you're into hiking, the park has several trails, including the Wildflower Loop Trail and Eagle Falls Trail, which offer beautiful views and a good workout.

    Some visitors have mentioned that the campsites can be a bit tight, especially for larger rigs, so keep that in mind when planning your trip. However, the natural beauty of the park more than makes up for it. The falls are free to visit, and there's even a 45-minute horse ride available for just $25, which is a steal.

    Overall, Cumberland Falls State Resort Park offers a fantastic blend of natural beauty and convenient amenities, making it a great choice for your next camping adventure.

      Our farm is beautifully located adjacent to the Cumberland Gap National Historic Park. The White Rocks trailhead is within walking distance and is a very popular for both horseback riding and hiking. The campsite has a great view of the White Rocks and is located just a few minutes from Hwy 58 making it a convenient stop if traveling through. The campsite is equine friendly, bring your horse trailer and stay the night after a long ride.
