Kentucky River - Cummins Ferry Area

  • Nonesuch Ramp next to Camp on the Kentucky RV Park

    5500 Cummins Ferry Rd, versailles, KY (map)

    37.891293 -84.780090

  • Good paddles up or downstream for about as long as you would want. Once you get away from the Cummins Ferry area, very sceninc and remote.

    Upstream a little is Cummins Falls. Mundy's Landing and the Chinn's Homestead (big house) are about 4 miles out for an 8 mile trip.

    Downstream, there is a usually dry creekbed and rock bar about 5.25 miles out, for a 10.5 mile trip.

    There is a ramp on the other side in Mercer Co, a little upstream at Cummins Ferry Resort/ Marina. That ramp is limited to customers at the Resort/Marina only - not open to just boaters.

    Best level is less than 14ft. on the Lock 6 Upper Pool gauge.

    Ok guys as I'm sitting here watching the second storm hit my neighborhood today I can't help think how I would not want to be caught out on the river in one of these. That being said I'm canceling this trip tomorrow just to risky. Sorry to disappoint hope to reschedule

    HOPING TO ATTEND...I NEED EQUIPMENT IF ANYONE KNOWS OF GREAT DEALS TY excited

      Just having the want to and excitement to get started in this sport is good enough. The river is flat water and right now doesn't have any flow so we can easily paddle up and back great for all level of paddlers. I will bring the kayak, life jacket, and paddle. You may want to bring water and snacks if you like. Wear sandals and cool light weight clothing that can get wet, you never know if you might end up in the water. Here is my number if you have questions 859 [masked]

    I am thinking of attending but am not familiar with the area and need to know if it would be suitable for me to bring my kids. I have tandem kayak my daughter will paddle with me. My son is 13 and is fairly experienced.
