Clayton Geneva Camp Ground began as a retreat for our family since the 70's. My grandparents, Donald Clayton Russell & Jewel Geneva (Davis) Russell, purchased this little piece of heaven to get away from the hustle and bustle of Cincinnati life. Judy was born in a little cabin just down the road. Judy & Don along with many family members have made cherished memories here over the years. We want to share its beauty with you and your family. Guests love staying here "We stayed in Birdsong cabin for the Halloween campout weekend. The cabin was ready for us upon arrival and very clean. We enjoyed the privacy of our covered porch and fire ring. The bird feeders hanging all around the cabin are wonderful to watch all the birds during the day. The community fire ring is close enough to enjoy with other campers, but not to close that we could hear anyone in our cabin. Amber and Michael checked on our needs many times during our stay. They hosted a chili cook-off that we greatly enjoyed and passed out candy to all the kids. Overall a great time and experience. We will stay here again."

The Harrican

7 sites · RVs, Tents200 acres · KY
Learn more about this land:This is a beautiful 200 acre farm that has been in my family for over 100 years. My father (at age 93) still harvests hay on 100 of the acres twice annually. Primitive campsites range from soft and scenic rolling fields with mountainous backdrops to completely wooded areas with the wild Rockastle River within 1 mile from the property. Discover a rare campsite available between two cliffs that the Native Americans originally called home. It remains just as they found it. There is an easily accessible large flat cliff area perfect for multiple tents and campfires! However, if a little more comfort is your style, you can unplug and unwind in a two story cabin located on a beautiful and secluded 2 acre pond with a dock and pier that can be reserved for $85 nightly. I classify the Lakehouse Cabin as primitive glamping! Wildlife is present every single day! We are near two Wildlife management reserve areas and completely surrounded by the Daniel Boone National Forrest. Deer, turkey and so much more can be observed daily in their natural habitat. This is truly an amazing and rare gem right here in our beloved Bluegrass State!

Cabins with dock

2 sites · Lodging1 acre · Somerset, KY
Our property sits on a finger of Cumberland Lake. The Lake is maintain and owned by the Army Corp of Engineers. Our property has one of the few docks that are grandfathered in to the rules of the lake. We bought this property as a summer home for our family and we are fortunate enough to have two small cabins on the property we are willing to share. We took a break during COVID and used our cabins for family but now that things are back to normal, we are ready to meet new people. Both cabins have indoor plumbing, a small kitchen area with a microwave, coffee pot, mini frig and sink. They have been remodeled and have covered balconies that overlook the hillside and water below. It's a beautiful, peaceful getaway that feels like you are miles from the city but really you are a mile from grocery stores, gas, and entertainment. If you are not familiar with Cumberland Lake, please review the pictures here to appreciate the distance and steepness of the hill that must be walked to get to the water. Part of the path is large gravel steps and part is just a trail through the woods, it winds and slopes and can be very slick in the rain. Everyone says it's not bad going down but coming back up is a challenge. This property is not for you if you have mobility issues.

The best camping near Cumberland Falls State Resort Park guide

Overview

About

Hemmed in by the sloping pines of the Daniel Boone National Forest, Cumberland Falls is famous for its two natural wonders. First, its namesake waterfall, the largest south of Niagara Falls; second, as the only place in the Western Hemisphere where you can witness a “moonbow” or lunar rainbow, glittering over the falls. Spectacular views aren’t the only reason to swing by—this state park also has 17 miles of hiking trails, guided whitewater rafting and horseback rides, a swimming pool, and fishing. Cumberland Falls Campground has tent and RV sites spread across two loops, plus woodland cabins for glampers.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. You can reserve one of 50 tent and RV sites at Cumberland Falls Campground via the Reserve America website. Cabins are booked through the Dupont Lodge.
  2. Campsite reservations open 12 months in advance and should be made a minimum of one day before arrival.  
  3. Campsites can book up as fast, so plan your booking at least six months in advance, especially for summer and holiday weekends.

When to go

Crowds head to Cumberland Falls to witness the monthly “moonbow,” which occurs on either side of the full moon—upcoming dates are listed on the park website. You can explore the park at any time, but many activities are seasonal. June through Labor Day is most popular, when you can swim, horseback ride, or join one of the Rainbow Mist rides beneath the falls. The campground is open from mid-March through the end of October.
