Creelsboro Natural Bridge – The “Rockhouse”

 

Looking for a fun family thing to do in the Lake Cumberland area?  Be sure to visit Kentucky’s Natural Bridge on the Cumberland River and stay nearby at a Lake Cumberland Cabin, Hotel or Motel.

Creelsboro’s Natural Bridge – also called The Rockhouse, is located in Jamestown, Kentucky, and is a natural historic attraction as well as listed on the National Registry.

Below Wolf Creek Dam is the area of the Rockhouse and Swan Pond Bottom.  Here you will find the 300 million year old natural bridge arch of solid limestone carved by nature and affectionately referred to as Rockhouse Bottom.  This 60 ft. high and over 120 ft. wide rock formation is located next to the cool rushing waters of the Cumberland River and was used by Native Americans and early settlers as a shelter against the elements.  The top of the Creelsboro Natural Arch is an old historic Indian Burial Ground.
