Forming the central feature of Cumberland Falls State Resort Park and offering dramatic views both day and night, Cumberland Falls spans the Cumberland River at the border of the McCreary and Whitley counties and is the only place in the Western Hemisphere where a moonbow is regularly visible. Cumberland Falls State Resort Park also offers comfortable overnight lodging, a campground with 50 campsites with utilities, a restaurant with beautiful river views, a modern visitors center, and an array of activities, including hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and whitewater rafting on the Cumberland River.
