The 7 is due to the fact the staff is not totally up front with the site information. I have a 30 foot trailer and the woman who gave me the site info on the phone said I would fit on the site she suggested because of the distance from my second axle to the rear bumper. For most sites, there is a cliff after the parking stop so your rear stabilizers are flapping in the breeze. I had site 28 which is the only "safe" site for a trailer this size. I had to park my rig sideways on the pavement in order to make it comfortable for me. Sites 28, 29 and 30 seem to be old sites with old tent sites behind them and they just made three sites out of six. They actually tried to put a 36 foot travel trailer on a site that was 24 feet long. Staff was very nice but just young kids inexperienced with camper sizes. Horseback riding stables on site, pool is down the road and a fee is charged even if you are camping ($2 PP). There is a very small camp store with the absolute minimum necessities. Lodge is also down the road, and the falls are even further down the road. Unless you are an avid hiker, you can't walk or even bike to any of this due to the hilly roads. This is a great tent/popup campground. Dump station is easy to access and is actually sloped a bit toward the dump. They should all be like this. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice little park that is suitable for tents up to small travel trailers. The entry road is narrow and winding and has some significant grades, but unless your tow vehicle/RV is way under-powered you should be able to handle the grades. Note the narrow description - this is important. Long vehicles will have some difficulty getting around the turns unless the road is empty (which is often the case.) The road inside the campground is also somewhat narrow, and wide vehicles may encounter difficulty making the tight loop at the end of the camp road. All of the spots in this park are short, but plenty wide (for slides, EZUp, etc.), have fire rings and are asphalt with gravel in the non-parking section of the spot. Hookups are shared, so you may need to move to an adjacent spot to get them on the proper side. Also, they are at varying distances from each spot, some being close enough for a standard 25' hose/power cord, others will require additional length to reach (no more than 50', if that, but longer than a 25' cord.) The park is located on some of the only flat land around, so there is not much the State Parks system could do to improve the size of the spots even if they were given the money by the State (which they have not for some years.) Check-in was simple and the park staff were very helpful and friendly. They let us check the spot before we finished check-in to be sure that it would work for us, and were happy to help us move to an adjacent spot with closer hookups. They also came by each day to make sure that we knew the camp store would be closing in 30 minutes, which I thought was very courteous. We stayed in spot #25, which had plenty of room for our 18' A-frame pop-up, but we had to park the truck across the front as the pad was too short to park both on the pad. This was not a problem and the park staff can assist with alternate parking if needed. There are large concrete wheel stops to prevent you from backing too far, but you will want to note the location of your rear stabilizers as backing too far in may leave your jacks hanging in mid-air. The campground is old, but well cared for, and quite nice once you get used to it's size. The bathrooms were clean (twice a day when we were there), but old. There were two showers in the mens facilities and both were clean and fully functional, but showing their age. The rangers passed through regularly and everything was clean and free of debris, trash, etc. This is probably the quietest campground we've ever stayed in. There is a lot to do at the park, which is a short drive (probably 5 minutes at most) from the campground. There are three waterfalls: Cumberland Falls, Eagle Falls, and Dog Slaughter Falls. The main attraction does not require hiking, but the other two do. There is also a playground in the campground for children, as well as a nature center, gift shop, and 'gem mining'. There is also a lodge at the park which has a restaurant in case you don't want to cook in camp (we did not go, but it looked nice.) Lastly, there is one dump site located at the entrance next to the check in station. It was well maintained and clean when we were there, and there was no line to use so emptying our grey water tote was a snap. Despite the small size of the spots and the narrow, winding entrance road, we would certainly camp here again - it was quiet, pretty, and there was plenty to see and do. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Tent Trailer.

The sites are short, and your tow most likely will have to park at the side of the road. The end of the loop was under construction to erect playground equipment while I was there. I took a site for a pop-up, as it had grass in front as opposed to chat. Restrooms clean. Wi-Fi available at the office/store, which was stocked with food/camping items. Tent sites were very nice and some built with platforms. Not much to do within the campground. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clean park and gorgeous setting on top of knoll. Only one site available for 30'+ (RV 33). Most sites are for smaller tent trailers, Class C and B, and slope down at back. Bathrooms and showers need maintenance from wear and water damage, but clean. Lots of dog friendly trails. Can use store's internet if close enough. Knoxville antenna TV available but sketchy. Stayed 3 nights. Would stay again. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful campground, nice asphalted sites, nice roads. We had to search a bit to find a site that didn't drop off the rear, so the bolted down picnic table would be accessible. I did notice the handicapped sites were rather steep, although they were a short walk from the shower house. Lovely stay, would definitely stay again. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Motorhome.

This is not a good place for a big RV. Our 37'fifth wheel was difficult to squeeze into. wouldn't want to do this again in our rig. Not easy access for any big rig. We were here for a family reunion. Would stay in a cabin next time! The biggest frustration was the lack of signs telling you where to register. Drove through the entire state park and had to find a place to turn around (not an easy feat in a F350 pulling a 37' 5th wheel). Bathrooms were clean, staff very friendly. We had Wi-Fi (were beside the grocery store, so were on theirs), rarely had cell service. The "moonbow" was a sight to behold. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Read the reviews on this one. The park is nice and has a great pool close to the campground. Wifi is available at the lodge which is nearby. The sites are close. Sardine packed in close. Sites are short. Do NOT come here in/with a big rig. We set up our popup and then had a tough time finding enough room to park our TV It ends up right next to your neighbor so our picnic table was in between our vehicle and the neighbors vehicle You share electric and water so bring extra hose and extra electric cord. Store on site is adequate. Bathrooms and campground are dated the showers and toilets are ok but old and even when "clean" they are not ideal. Note that the sites are on the top of a ridge and the back of each site drops off rapidly. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Tent Trailer.

Sites are tight for big rigs because most are not deep. We had site RV15 and it was fine for our Jayco popup that is 24 feet when open, although one bed did hang over the edge. We could not put up our screen house because the fire pit was really close to our trailer awning. We parked on the cement slab. We saw many larger trailers park and they usually had to park the length of the site rather than on the cement slab to get on. Many people parked their cars in other empty sites if one was available. The office was open from 8-8 and a ranger rode through the campground several times when the office was not open. There was a small store that had the essentials as well as firewood and ice. The tent sites here were really cool with little decks on the sites for tables, etc. Campers could use the pool for $2 a day. It was about a 1/2 mile hike each way and they had a large parking lot if you wanted to take your car. The falls were beautiful. Take the trail to Eagle Falls if you want a beautiful hike. Corbin about 20 miles, had many grocery stores and a Super Wal-Mart is right off exit 29. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Tent Trailer.

Camped here to see the Moonbow. We did see it but it was a little disappointing. It is not a rainbow like the touched up photos show, and the water is brown not blue. Ridgeline Campground is very small, both in size of sites and # of sites. We have a 21' Class B and it was tight. Bathhouse is old and small, adjacent to the store and checkin. I thought the place would fill up due to the full moon (Moonbow) but there were still empty sites. Campground is quite a ways from the falls. Falls area could use some night lighting by stairs. Nice giftshop. Buffet ($11 = Roast Beef, Chicken, Fish) was OK. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Motorhome.

The word here is "Tight". The RV sites are 90 degree to the small road and is almost impossible to maneuver a trailer. This is a camp that needs to be reworked to allow larger vehicles. The camp hosts are very helpful in selecting a spot the you can get into. We had to park parallel to the road across the camp site as we could not back into the site. There is also a fairly steep hill into and out of the park. The trees are low and need trimming. Water and electrical were good. Did I suggest using a tent. We would not come back with our 24 foot 5th wheel. The park is a great hiking park. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is geared towards small trailers and tents mostly. Our trailer was too big for the regular sites so they let us camp on the service road. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made a point of making sure everybody was happy. We would stay here again. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our first time out with our hybrid camper on Memorial Day weekend. Our camper is 18 feet closed but when we drop the two ends it is 22 feet, the site was for 25 feet and felt very close to the road. Parked our truck parallel to the camper. The staff was very friendly, clean restrooms. The sites are very tight to back into, tight corner turning into the campground. You have to drive to the pool. There are hiking trails to get to the falls. A little playground on the circle, but not a lot of places for kids to ride their bikes or play. Lots of shade. Picnic tables and fire rings at the sites. Seems everyone brought their dogs (including us) and they were all well behaved. We hiked to the falls (both Cumberland and Eagle Creek) from camp, then drove over to Dog Slaughter Falls. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Travel Trailer.

The park itself is very nice , great trails and falls, plenty of photo opts. The campground itself is poor. Sites too close; some are just open areas where several units are together. There is a horse stable within a short distance. The campground needs to be reworked and updated to be within the standard Kentucky wants.

Very few sites for large RV's, but #121 worked out ok for our 37' Class A. We drove through the park before reserving since we live within a half hour or so, then called the park office directly since they show a maximum length of 28' at most sites on the Reserve America reservation website. Overall, not a bad place, and considering the price, we were pretty pleased during the three nights we stayed here. There are even a couple of sites that larger RV's were allowed to park perpendicular to the parking area, instead of in it, as it was designed. The Falls are beautiful and there are lots of hiking trails in the area. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Motorhome.

We just visited during our trip to the park. In my opinion the campground is really only suitable for tents, pop ups, and smaller travel trailers. There are a couple of sites you might be able to get a larger unit into, but it would be dicey. There are steep drop-offs behind many of the sites. If you have a larger RV, you are better off staying somewhere else and just day tripping into the park. We would definitely not attempt to stay there in our 35-foot unit. We camped at Cumberland Falls State Resort Park in a Fifth Wheel.
