We stopped and took that video on our way to
Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area (U.S. National Park Service)
Yahoo Falls is near there and it would have been fun to
see and hear after that epic rain but my wife slipped
on some wet timbers our first day there and broke her
ankle

If you are in the Cumberland Falls area check out
Yahoo Falls. The highest water fall in KY.
Not real big as in water flow but very high and well
worth a visit.
About and hours drive south of Cumberland Falls.

BTW- Cumberland Falls state park camp ground
is one of the most cramped of any in KY. It's on top
of a narrow ridge with sites on each edge of the road.
Very tight. A few in front that have more room but they
aren't real level. We've been there with an 18 footer
and were OK.
I've seen larger motor homes back in there
but man it's real tight and the rear end of the MH
is literally hanging off a cliff.
Pop ups and smaller hybrids will be fine.
There are some private CGs in the area of Cumberland Falls.

I'm not saying you can't get in there, it's just a bit
of a challenge.
That's why I recommended Big South Fork..... with day
trips to Cumberland Falls.

We stay at indian Mountain State park in Tn when we visit Cumberland Falls. Cumberland Falls does not have much of a campground. Indian state park - Yahoo! Video Search

We also stay at Cove Lake State Park in Tn but that would be further down from Ky.


These two state Parks are two of the best near where I live in my opinion. I camp at both. They would be close to interstate and not way off, if you are traveling thru. They are great for camping, relaxing, walking and bike riding.

I like to hike- about 3-5 miles everyday and also biking and tracking. Always prefer to go with friends. Great thanks for all the information, I should be able to get my spring trip planned.
