Lake Cumberland is the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi River. Its large surface acreage and over 1,200 miles of shoreline provide a myriad of recreational activities.
The lake has an abundance of largemouth, smallmouth, white and Kentucky bass, bluegill, crappie, rockfish and walleye, making it a favorite among anglers.
Visitors enjoy the 30-acre site and its 30 shaded campsites. Fourteen of these sites are waterfront, making them prime locations for weekend recreation. Cumberland Point has a day-use area, picnic shelter and public parking.
Amenities include flush toilets, showers, drinking water and a dump station. A boat ramp and playground are located within the park.
The entrance and exit roads have a moderate to severe grade.
The campground overlooks the main body of the lake, offering sweeping scenic views. Dense stands of mature hardwoods forest the site, offering scenic views, pleasant shade and wildlife habitat.
Because of the temperate climate and relatively long recreation season, the lake provides varied outdoor recreational opportunities for millions of visitors each year.
The Mill Springs Battlefield Park is just a 20-minute drive from the campground. This historic Civil War site offers interpretive exhibits, a gift shop and driving tour. Special events are held throughout the year.
