Russell Springs KOA

It's water, water everywhere when you stay at this campground overlooking Lake Cumberland, one of Kentucky's most scenic recreational areas.

It's water, water everywhere when you stay at this campground right next to Lake Cumberland, in one of Kentucky's most scenic recreational areas. Camp here, and it's just a mile to the lakeshore, boat ramp, boat rentals and restaurant. Fishing is great, and so is cruising along the lake's meandering shoreline. Also be sure to visit the area's other key water attraction: Cumberland Falls has been dubbed the "Niagara of the South" and is one of the nation's largest waterfalls. There's plenty more to do in the area - including Mammoth Cave National Park - and plenty to do right at KOA. Play a set of tennis or team up for some volleyball, then cool off in the pool. The recreation hall has cable TV and plenty of video games. Pool: May 18 - Sept. 10. Max pull thru: 75 feet. Your host: Sharon Sackos.

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.
