Just curious, who on this site calls Cumberland their home lake. Where do you put in at? Where is your favorate place to ride? Where do you stay at? etc.

I ride exclusively on Cumberland and usually put in at Lee's Ford and ride on Fishing Creek. There are probably some better places to board on the west end but Lee's Ford is much more convenient for me. I live in Somerset so I stay at home :-) If you come down to ride let me know and we can hook up.

What the water level like at Cumberland? Have they finished the work on the dam?

Normal summer pool is 725 feet above sea level. Right now the intended level is 680. Actual level is about 688 with hopes that they can bring it back to 690 permanently this year. Work on the dam is going well but they still have a long way to go. There is still plenty of water to ride on :-)

I am also going to be putting in at Lee Ford. I am going to keep my camper at Cumberland Point Campground which is around the corner.

I usually boat three weekends out of the month so, maybe we can hook up.

So her is a question for you you cumberland guys. I am an avid houseboat vacationer and have never been to cumberland but pass it on my way to Dale Hollow Lake and wonder if I am missing amything? The only reason i go to DH is the cheaper prices. Any insights of cheaper houseboat on cumberland? what i have found in comparison to like models is cumberland is a lot more expensive. Thanks

Snippy, I would guess that your assumption is correct in regarding prices on Cumberland. The only exception may be this year with tourism down I hear that the marinas are dropping prices and offering incentives for houseboat rentals. It may be worth taking a second look. DH is sweet though!

Snippy, Lake Cumberland (state dock) was boating home for me for 5 years, the last 4 i have been at Dale Hollow. Both lakes are unbelieveably nice lakes. Prices do tend to be lower at DHL as Adam stated, however Lake Cumb is doing a lot of promotion to get tourism back up. I would say prices are probably a little negotiable right now. I believe i saw a statistic that tourism was off by 40% last year, ouch! I was at Lake C for poker run last year and there is still plenty of water for anyone to get their fill. I guess to answer your question, i dont think anyone at either lake is missing anything. One thing i like about DHL is that i can go up the road and have dinner and beer and at Lake Cumb near state dock you wont find any of that...bring what you need in regard to beverages!

I ride out of Lee's Ford on Cumberland as well. I am without a wakeboat at this moment but still have a slip. The area around grider hill and state dock are better places to ride, but you can get a beer at Lee's Ford! If you want to rent a houseboat make Bill Jasper at State dock a offer. They will rent one cheaper than advertised. The one thing I don't like about DH is the stumps in the water. We don't worry about things like that on Cumberland.

For y'all who love Cumberland

My great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great Grandpa (13 generations) was the explorer and surveyor who named the Cumberland River in 1750.

The last entry in his journal 7-13-1750

We killed in the journey 13 Buffaloes, 8 Elks, 53 Bears, 20 Deer, 4 wild Geese, about 150 Turkeys, besides small game. We might have killed three times as much meat, if we had wanted it.

I like to camp so when I go you will usually find me in the Daniel Boone National Forest at Laurel Lake that dumps into Burnside. Although I dont own any property in KY, I feel at home there
