“magical moonbows on clear nights”
The solid hemlock beams and knotty pine paneling complement the massive stone fireplaces in historic DuPont Lodge, one of the most beautiful state park lodges. Fifty-one rooms offer beautiful views and full amenities including interior corridors. All rooms totally renovated in 2006. Relax on the beautiful, large observation deck overlooking the Cumberland River winding thru the hillside. DuPont Lodge provides a spectacular spot for a wedding. Don’t forget about the park’s other accommodations, including Cumberland Falls cabin rentals, cottages and campsites. Imagine a wall of water falling 60 feet into a boulder-strewn gorge, a whispering mist that kisses the face and a magical moonbow visible on a clear night under a full moon. That's Cumberland Falls.
This is an "experience" not to miss. The falls are spectacular, and you'll get a work out too. No entrance fee. Beware copperheads if you venture on the rocks or deadfall. Wear good shoes ( not sandals!!!) and prepare for uneven stairways and a lot of walking to see the upper, lower and beach area. If planning a trip- try for full moon dates, you might get to see a very rare "moonbow".
Beautiful park with nice walking trails & incredible waterfall. Highly recommend staying at the lodge, the staff was amazing. We got in a bit late in the day and they held the buffet open for me to grab a plate. We will definitely stop again when in the area during a future road trip.
This is an excellent park, with many trails. We stayed at the campground near the pool. There was an excellent trail head next to our campsite that took us down to the falls. Make sure you wear a good pair of shoes or boots when hiking the trails
This is worthy seeing! The falls are much bigger than expected. There are tons of trails for hiking as well!
We stopped here for a few hours. We wanted to hike to the Cumberland falls. The about a mile hike was beautiful as well as the falls. We did see a copperhead snake on the trail so make sure to watch your step. There is a place down by the falls with snacks and a gift shop. The resort is a neat building and the staff was very polite. Since we were just passing through we did not stay the night.
We had a few people tell us not to miss the "Niagra of the South". It was awe inspiring, but due to muddy waters & high water flow. A local showed us a gorgeous pic of what the falls usually look like from a few months prior and they were lovely. Would like to see it that way too. Parking is easy & short walk to viewing area. If you are in the area, it is definitely worth a photo stop at minimum.
