It was 29 degrees outside while we were there but the sight was beautiful. The falls are amazing. My 8 year old daughter enjoyed our quick visit. Just wish it had been warmer to stay there longer and see/do more while there

The hotel is a project of President Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corp during the depression. Made of large virgin forest logs and stone, it is a great hotel for a quiet get-away. The restaurant has a menu based on Kentucky and includes fried chicken, country ham, fried catfish, Hot Brown, etc. The food is excellent and tastes like it is home... More

This place is magnificent any time of year. Hike, or just go for a drive. Ask the Ranger for all available activities and you may get to hike to lesser known places!

It's about a 30 minute drive from Corbin to see the Falls - once there it's a short walk to the bluff's edge. They were working on a lower viewing area the day we visited. There's picnic tables and grills available and on certain nights you can observe the "Moon Glow" - the only place in North America it's visible!

This state part of an excellent choice for anyone. Even visitors with disabilities will be able to enjoy the site of the waterfall. If lucky, visitors can visit it during a full moon and see the famous moon rainbow, only seen at two locations worldwide.
