Fall Creek Campground is situated along the shores of the vast Lake Cumberland in southern Kentucky.

Natural Features:

The campground overlooks the main body of the lake, offering sweeping scenic views. Dense stands of mature hardwoods forest the area, offering pleasant shade and wildlife habitat.

Due to the temperate climate and relatively long recreation season, the lake provides varied outdoor recreational opportunities for millions of visitors each year.


Lake Cumberland is the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi River. Its large surface acreage and over 1,200 miles of shoreline provide a myriad of recreational activities.

The lake has an abundance of largemouth, smallmouth, white and Kentucky bass, bluegill, crappie, rockfish and walleye, making it a favorite among anglers.


Visitors enjoy the 10-acre site and its 10 spacious campsites. All of these sites are waterfront, making them prime locations for weekend recreation. Fall Creek has a day-use area, picnic shelter and public parking.

Amenities include flush toilets, showers, drinking water and a dump station. A boat ramp and playground are located within the park.

Nearby Attractions:

The Mill Springs Mill Park is just a 15-minute drive from the campground. This historic mill site offers grinding on the weekends and holidays, picnic sites and a gift shop. Interpretive tours of the mill are given Friday through Monday during the recreation season.
