The Travel Industry everywhere has been one of the hardest hit during the Covid-19 pandemic, but during this extraordinarily difficult time, these 4 Lake Cumberland businesses have been using this “travel pause” to bring exciting new amenities to their Lake Cumberland business!

During the time Governor Beshear shut down Kentucky State Park Lodging, the Lake Cumberland State Resort Park has not been idle & has been using the time to make some extremely exciting improvements to the park!  Work is already underway to bring full hookup capabilities to the park’s campground. Full hookup campsites provide increased comfort, including the ability to hook directly to water, electricity, and sewer right from your campsite!

In addition to adding some full hook up campsites, the Lake Cumberland State Resort Park is also working on the indoor and outdoor swimming pools!  Kentucky’s most popular Resort park will be ready and better than ever when tourists return.  Note: Trails are still open at Lake Cumberland State Resort Park.

Jamestown Resort and Marina (Safe Harbor – Jamestown) has also been busy during this travel down time and is adding brand new Lake Cumberland Cabins!  These super cute 1-bedroom cabins sleep 2 people and overlook beautiful Lake Cumberland.  Cabins are fully furnished.  Jamestown Marina has cabins & hotel rooms of all sizes for all budgets.  The restaurants at Jamestown Marina are also getting a full facelift and new menu.  Work is currently underway to make dining on the lake eve more delectable.

Marina at Rowena is Lake Cumberland’s newest commercial marina and we could not be more excited that they are opening their brand-new Ship Store and Restaurant in 2020! Marina at Rowena is located just 4 miles upstream from Wolf Creek Dam and in one of the widest sections of the lake. The Ship Store is ready to open along with other retail on May 20th. The restaurant is well underway but opening with caution with the “new normal” for restaurants.  Call the marina for more information regarding the opening date for their restaurant – (606) 387-0063.

Timber Pointe Resort in Jamestown has created a new, larger, and totally awesome home for Reel Java & Creamery Gourmet Coffee/ Ice Cream and Boutique!  Reel Java is still located on the Timber Pointe property, but now has its own beautiful building with seating, an expanded food menu and many new shopping items. 

As visitors return to the Lake Cumberland area they will be surprised and happy to see all that is NEW & Improved!  Lake Cumberland – It will Be Worth the Wait!
