Cumberland Mountain State Park

Cumberland Mountain State Park is situated on the Cumberland Plateau, a segment of the great upland, which extends from western New York to central Alabama. It is said to be the largest timbered plateau in America. This 1,720-acre park was acquired in 1938 as a project of the Farm Security Administration to provide a recreational area for some 250 families selected to homestead on the Cumberland Plateau. The Homestead Museum, located one mile from the park, depicts the Cumberland Homestead Community of the 1930's. This community built the park along with help from the CCC and WPA.

Cumberland Mountain is also well-known for its variety of cabins, outstanding restaurant, Jack Nicklaus signature Bear Trace golf course and its popular campground that features a combined total of 145 tent and RV campsites with hookups provided. Picnic tables, grills and a bathhouse facility are also provided.
