Cumberland falls kentucky

Does anyone know what conditions are like in the Cumberland falls area? We are thinking about making a run up there and are concerned about possible flooding. Also can someone recommend a decent campground?

The state campground is small, and you will need at least 12 inches of blocks to get a travel trailer level. I had to let my jack all the way down an could have used another inch to get mine level. 30 foot I think was the max length. The place has not seen a renovation in some time. There is another campground near called Falls Creek, it looked nice, but have not stayed there. The Falls are very nice. Enjoy.

We stayed a couple of weeks at Cumberland Gap National Park and took a day trip to Cumberland Falls. I was personally kind of disappointed in Cumberland Falls. The campground looked like it would be difficult to find a level site for our 32ft Class C and the roads were in bad shape with potholes, etc. The entire park looked like it could use a little renovation. The waterfalls were so muddy that the photos looked awful.

On the other hand, Cumberland Gap NP has a very nice campground and is within driving distance of lots of interesting historical sites. The park actually is in Virginia, Tennessee & Kentucky. But, there are no big waterfalls there. I want to go back in the fall and see the area with the leaves in full color.

If you want to see a nice waterfall, go to Fall Creek Falls in TN. Nice campground and prettier falls. North Carolina has some pretty spectacular waterfalls. We stay in Sylva at a Passport America park called Ft. Tatham. It's within driving distance of the Highland waterfalls, half an hour from the Smokies and only a few miles from the Franklin, NC gem mines.
