Cumberland Falls State Resort Park is located in the Daniel Boone National Forest. Known as the "Niagara of the South," the waterfall forms a 125-foot wide curtain that plunges 60 feet into the boulder-strewn gorge below. The mist of Cumberland Falls creates the magic of the moonbow, only visible on a clear night during a full moon. This unique phenomenon appears nowhere else in the Western Hemisphere.

Hiking Cumberland Falls has 17 miles of hiking trails. The Moonbow Trail connects with many backpacking trails in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

Enjoy fishing in the Cumberland River, where there is an abundance of bass, catfish, panfish, and roughfish.
