Campground Description

Known as the "Niagara of the South," Cumberland Falls State Resort Park is named after the largest waterfall south of the Niagara. 125 ft wide wall of water drops into a boulder-strewn gorge. With a full moon and clear night sky you can see the "moonbow," a (lunar rainbow) that appears in the base of the waterfall. A phenomenon not found anywhere else in the Western Hemisphere! The area is also a natural choice for water-sports enthusiasts, offering *white-water rafting, *canoeing, *swimming, and fishing. Landlubbers will enjoy hiking and *horseback riding in this lovely area. (* for Seasonal)

    We only visited for the day in hopes of seeing the moonbow that night in conjunction with the full moon, but with overcast skies and storms rolling in we didn't stay any longer as it was proving to be hopeless. This park has it all and it is a very beautiful area. I highly recommend a visit! I like this idea of state resort parks - Texas doesn't have this, unfortunately.
