If we didn't like to trailer to new places so much we would leave are boat at Cumberland for sure. Kamma turned us on to Lake Michigan this year so we will probably hang out up there alot this year checking out the differant ports.
What we like about Cumberland so much are the coves. You can go so far back, drop an anchor by yourself or a group and not see anyone all day. The lake and coves are vary deep. You can be 15' off shore and be in 20' of water and cristal clear.
We belong to the Tri State Power Boat Asso. in Cincinnati and we did a fun run there in the spring that was alot of fun. We should have a meeting coming up soon so if we put something together I'll let everyone know.

Default went this year from mi...

My wife and I trailered down there end of august, I think about 8 hours from here. Stayed at jamestown cabins, very nice for a cabin. 2brs., 2bath ac blah blah. Put the boat in a covered slip for three nights and explored.
What you need to know, great scenery, no shore line or sand or beaches to pull up on.
Dry county, bring your own refreshments and be careful.
Lots of houseboats and lots of nice hardware.
We were able to travel the whole lake in 3 days.
Will probably be going back this year.

You do not have to be too careful about the dry county thing. Just keep it in a cup or a coolie and you are fine. That pic of 76 falls is pretty calm. Usually lined with houseboats and partiers. It is a pretty popular place for people from Cincinnati.

I make the trip 1-3 times a year. It is about 3 1/2- 3 3/4 hours. I make the southern Michigan trip about 6-8 times a year. That alo is about 3 1/2 - 3 3/4 hours. I would say from Grand Haven you are looking at about 9 hours, direct shot. Hope you all can make it down some weekend, it's really a great lake.

Fast Enough,

What is this "land cumberland OSOers"? Are you without a boat?

Can't wait untill its spring again and we start boating again. Usually late April even though its still cold.

Yea I do alot of lurking however my posting is picking up.

Take care and see you soon.

Beautiful place. Miles and Miles of shoreline and thousands of coves to explore and hang out. Great on a jet ski or boat. Very Deep.

Let's have a get together in the spring!
