“Have you ever seen a "Moonbow"? Now's your chance... On a clear night with a full moon above the falls one can see what is known as a “moonbow.” A moonbow is a lunar rainbow, which is almost exactly like a regular rainbow except that they occur at night under the auspices of the moon, not the sun.”

Point of Interest
“Wolf Creek Marina is the closest full service marina to the property. There are other ramps nearby that are adequate for launching your boat into Lake Cumberland, but for those that require a full marina, Wolf Creek would be the best location. Visit Fishtales at Wolf Creek Marina. The bar and grill serves up some of the finest food and drinks available on the water. Visit later in the evening and enjoy nightlife on the water. ”

“For great country food and unbelievable (inexpensive) prices, this is the place to go. Sunday buffet offers everything under the sun for $9.99 per person. Home cooked country styled meals for under $6.00. Can't beat the price or the flavor of the country restaurant. Only 12 miles from LOL on Hwy 76 on the way to Indian Hills / Alligator II Marina. ”
