Default So, where exactly is Lake Cumberland???

Looking at maybe making a trip down at some point this coming summer. But I don't even know where it is really. What is the nearest city? Town? Just throwing around some ideas with the little lady.

From your area it is about 6 hours south on I65. If you decide to go get with me and I will get you exact instructions. Also will get you info you need. I have a manufacturing facility in Jamestown, KY
Get to go there all year round except past 12 weeks broken foot.

About 550 miles for me. About 80-100 miles shorter than my trips to LOTO.

Waterfoul,

It will be worth your trip. It is my home lake where we keep our boat. It has a "cove" named 76 Falls. Nice waterfall and usually good other "scenery". By NO means equal to "Party Cove" at LOTO but not bad. Let me know if I can help with you plans as the time approaches.

Be Safe,
Mark

Nope....Indy is about 4-5 hours towing, depending on traffic. I'm in Grand Rapids, MI. It's nearly 2 hours to the border of Indiana from here towing a boat.

Mike,
Let me know when you're thinking of going. Depending on the national race schedule, I may be interested.
Sounds like a fun trip.

Waterfoul,

Using Map Quest from Grand Rapids to Aaron, KY which is on the end of the lake where we are near Grider Hill Dock it is 530 miles with 10 1/2 hours of drive time. They are also routing the long way once you would hit the KY border. I can give you directions that will be considerably closer and faster. It would be the same route that we travel every weekend.

Be safe,
Mark

Gordo,

You also will enjoy it. In years past (last year was dead for whatever reason) Sat. evening about 5 -6 PM or so out in front of the dam is the place to be. Once the crowd starts leaving 76 Falls the horsepower ends up at the dam for some impromptu racing of sorts. Can be a good show even if one does not participate. There is some fairly impressive horsepower with several that are in the 100 MPH range. Not to mention some new blood / boats that I know have been purchased at the end of last season.

Several OSO members also frequent Cumberland so we can have an OSO get together to some degree.

Also we are planning a trip to LOTO at some point next summer. Would like to try one of the 3 holiday weekends but not sure if my old body could survive it. Willing to try though! Have been twice before first time for the US Offshore Races several years back and the last time for the Poker Runs America Poker Run. Looking forward to our next trip.

Be Safe,
Mark
