Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery

The hatchery provides over 1,000,000 rainbow, brown, and brook trout each year to the benefit of the American people. Also visit Wolf Creek Dam. Over 1-mile long, the landmark which forms Lake Cumberland from the Cumberland River provides hydro-electrical power and flood control.
Alligator II Marina
Lake Cumberland is one of the most beautiful places in the United States and the best place to explore all of its beauty is from right on the lake itself. Head over to Alligator II Marina to launch your own boat or rent of their pontoons to enjoy a day of exploration and fishing in one of the best fishing destinations around.
Creelsboro Natural Bridge
Below the mass of concrete which is Wolf Creek Dam is the area of the Rockhouse and Swan Pond Bottom. Here you will find a 300 million year old natural bridge arch of solid limestone carved by nature and affectionately referred to as Rockhouse Bottom. This 60 ft. high and over 120 ft. wide rock formation is located next to the cool rushing waters of the Cumberland River and is said to have been used by Native Americans and early settlers as a shelter against the elements. This is a Russell County treasure you don’t want to miss.
