Jamestown Resort & Marina is a world class, 300-acre recreational paradise on magnificent Lake Cumberland, in the heart of Kentucky. In addition, the Lake Cumberland area has many other attractions and entertainment for the whole family.  Known as the “Houseboat Capital of the World,” Lake Cumberland is big, crystal clear, and a vacation paradise for fishermen, boaters, and those looking to sit back and enjoy the view.  Russell County is home to four commercial marinas providing everything from fishing boat rentals to state of the art houseboat vacations.

For fishing enthusiasts, Lake Cumberland offers trophy-size stripers and holds the state records for brown and rainbow trout and walleye. For fly fishermen, the Cumberland River below Wolf Creek Dam offers some of the best trout fishing in the country.

Jamestown Resort & Marina is close to a wide range of attractions including Harmon Creek & 76 Falls on the Lake, Cumberland Falls, Somersplash Water Park, Lake Cumberland Speedway, Somernites Cruise-In, Wolfe Creek Dam & Fish Hatchery, and Lake Cumberland Winery.  Whether you are looking for a weekend get-away, a week-long vacation, a fall foliage tour, a houseboat vacation, or racing across the lake, Jamestown Resort & Marina and Lake Cumberland is the perfect destination!
