I am usually able to connect from our second floor balcony, as our condo overlooks the clubhouse area, by the pool, where the router is located:) If you absolutely cannot do without wifi, you can always count on reliable internet service in the picturesque lobby of the State Park Lodge, just 4 miles down the road!
YES! We have DISH TV (including local channels)
SORRY: NO Smoking in Condos and No Pets!
We are close to the pool and playground too. Our condo is located in the highest point of the resort, offering a spectacular view of the resort and the surrounding hills. We have a seasonal view of the lake from the upper balcony, and a grassy (watch for grazing deer) and wooded view from the front.
Our condo has been renovated from top-to-bottom and has been designed to reflect the warmth of Kentucky hospitality.
Each level has a new LCD flat screen TV.
EAT-IN KITCHEN offers new custom crafted wrap-around solid oak cabinetry. Whirlpool appliances and refrigerator with freezer large enough to accomodate a cooler full of ice for your day on the lake! You can now conveniently purchase a $2 bag of ice right here at Apple Valley Resort!

APPLE VALLEY SALLY'S S3 CONDO:
Our condo is the best kept secret at Lake Cumberland!
The resort where our condo resides is a small privately owned community with a security gate, and most owners choose NOT to rent their units, keeping them as family summer getaways.
Apple Sally's Condo is located on 72 wooded acres in Apple Valley Resort, 145 State Park Road, just after you turn at the big 'LAKE CUMBERLAND STATE RESORT PARK' sign off Route 127.
Apple Valley Resort adjoins the property of Lake Cumberland State Resort Park. The resort offers a large pool with a diving board and lots of chaise lounges and umbrella tables. There are lighted tennis courts and a basketball court.
You will enjoy the beautiful covered picnic area (lights and paddle fans!) with family size stainless steel gas grills, located right next to the playground, pool and clubhouse. There's a CAMPFIRE RING too - and Rocking Chairs:)
You can hike to the lake and take a dip in the secluded cove if you are adventurous!
LAKE CUMBERLAND & BOAT LAUNCH RAMPS:
You can launch your boat at Lake Cumberland State Resort Park, or the newly updated facility at Wolf Creek Dam . They provide access to two completely different sections of Lake Cumberland. For kayaking, or a quick spot to jump in the lake, go to Rowena Ferry Road - approx. 2000 feet from our condo's Entrance, just off State Park Road!
Ski-boat, fishing boat, pontoon, and jet-ski rental are available for your family's fun time just down the road at the State Park Marina 1-888-782-8336 and, or at nearby Jamestown Marina 1-800-830-5131.
LAKE CUMBERLAND STATE RESORT PARK:
We suggest that you visit the State Park lodge and pick up an activity/entertainment schedule. Most activities are free. They have just added a Disc Golf Course for your family's funtime - FREE!
Dining at the Lake Cumberland State Park Resort Lodge is a must. We recommend the buffets - and you can feed leftovers to the 'critters' at the lodge patio, overlooking the lake.
The breakfast morning view from the Lodge is awesome. Do not forget to watch the sunset from the Lookout Point, a spectacular view of the lake, and just a short stroll from the lodge. You are sure to see deer if you drive around the State Park at dusk.
Enjoy preparing meals in YOUR new kitchen, or enjoy the friendly service and county cookin' at the local restaurants in Jamestown, or at the State Park. Lake Cumberland is no longer in a "dry" county, so you can enjoy all your favorite beverages as you dine out.
NEW TO THE AREA? Our condo has a 'Welcome Book' to guide you with activities and local restaurants. We even have a collection of menus to review before you go!
Most of our rentals come from referrals and our valued repeat customers. We love our condo, and you will too. Like family, you will feel very comfortable and right at home here. We only ask that you treat our condominium with the same respect that you treat your own home. We look forward to welcoming you back year after year.

ABOUT LAKE CUMBERLAND:
Lake Cumberland has more shoreline than the state of Florida!
Lake Cumberland is 101 miles long and is one of the largest man-made lakes in the nation. Each year millions of visitors travel from all over the United States to enjoy the rugged beauty of its 63,000 surface acres and 1,255 miles of wooded shoreline.
Known as the “Houseboat Capital of the World”, Lake Cumberland is big, crystal clear and a vacation paradise for fishermen, boaters, and those that just like to sit back and enjoy the view. Russell County is home to four commercial marinas providing boat rentals and lake side restaurants.
Ready to catch the big one? Lake Cumberland offers trophy-size stripers and hold 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 anywhere.
Hatchery Creek is located below Lake Cumberland immediately behind the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery. The creek starts from the cold water outflow of the hatchery and flows over 6,000 feet before joining the Cumberland River.
Hatchery Creek starts as a maintained park-like fishing area for the first 400 feet from the hatchery outflow, to a small waterfall. This is Upper Hatchery Creek where you can keep up to 5 trout, with no size limit. From the waterfall and downstream is Lower Hatchery Creek where sport fishing regulations limit anglers to artificial lures, and catch and release only.
-CANOE/KAYAK RENTAL below Wolf Creek Dam. Canoe in the Cumberland River, or Lake Cumberland. Paddle to Paradise Island!
Browse through our many antique, craft, and specialty shops in downtown Russell Springs and Jamestown. You are guaranteed to find the perfect treasure!

About 'Sally' Sharon Lewin Campbell
Our family has had a love affair with Lake Cumberland since our children were very small. We used to stay at the Pumpkin Creek Lodge when it was only $18/night! We did not even know Apple Valley existed until we met another family at one of the State Park activities and they told us they were staying in a privately owned condo at Apple Valley Resort. That was the last time we stayed at the State Park Lodge. Apple Valley was the best of both worlds for us. Close to Lake Cumberland State Park and all the free activities, but peaceful and secluded in a beautiful wooded setting...and a security gate for our family's safety. So we rented an Apple Valley condo for years. Then one unseasonably warm March Saturday we decided to drive down to the lake just for the day. On the way home we stopped at Ralph Roy Realty to see if they ever had any for sale, and what-do-you-know, Ralph Roy himself owned one and it was for sale - The rest is history! Now at least four of our former renters are now owners, and part of the Apple Valley Family! You WILL fall in love with Apple Valley. We now refer to our S-3 unit as APPLE SALLY'S CONDO!!! :)
'Sally' Sharon Lewin Campbell purchased this Condo in 1989
Why 'Sally' Sharon Lewin Campbell chose Apple Valley
Apple Valley is the only place we ever considered. We had rented there for years, spending every holiday and a week's summer vacation at Apple Valley. We loved the convenient location of our condo as it is rarely crowded and so easy to load and unload the car and the boat. We enjoy spending quality time with our children and grandchildren at Apple Valley. Relaxing around the campfire (there is a fire ring surrounded by chairs) and roasting marshmallows in the evening is a special treat for the children. It is so nice to relax and unwind under the stars and away from the city lights. The pool is rarely crowded and the playground, tennis courts, and basketball courts are right there too. Kids run around and parents watch, smile, and RELAX! We also enjoy a hike through the woods. Of course we always wind up at the lake and let the kids jump right in Apple Valley's secluded cove! SHOPPING: Browse through our many antique, craft, and specialty shops in downtown Russell Springs and Jamestown. You are guaranteed to find the perfect treasure! Want more? There is a mall in nearby Somerset!

Very clean. Nicely decorated.
Enjoyed the owner’s booklet with restaurant suggestions. Will be back next year.
Thank you! I’m happy that you appreciated the Guest “Welcome to Apple Valley” booklet I put together to share places to eat, special spots to visit, and things to do during your visit to Lake Cumberland.
Apple Valley very nice place to stay. We enjoyed our visit except for two items
1). MY husband walked around barefoot and I was in my white socks during our stay and we both noticed we had black feet/socks. We thought it most likely was from kitchen tile floor
2) WiFi did not work inside the unit.
Thank you, Ann. Apple Valley IS a very nice place to stay, and we are happy that you enjoyed your visit! My husband and I had recently shampooed the carpets, and I probably should have gone over everything a second time! Thank you for letting us know.
Apple Valley has a new internet provider, and now we sometimes have to go the upstairs balcony to connect to the wifi. The router is located in the clubhouse by the pool, and we (luckily:) have a direct view from our balcony!
We had a really wonderful time at Cumberland park and the houses there are beautiful. I;m sure we;ll return there soon.
Thank you, William, for taking time to share your experiences of Lake Cumberland State Park and Apple Valley. Glad you had a wonderful time, and so happy to here that you will return soon!

We are confident that once you have stayed in Apple Sally's Condo, you will never stay anywhere else again when you visit Lake Cumberland. There's no place more family-friendly and welcoming than Apple Valley Resort. We found it back in the 80's after many, many stays at Lake Cumberland State Park. It is the best of both worlds. You can enjoy all the amenities that the State Park offers, yet you are away from the crowds in your own private getaway when you want to be. Conveniently located between two great launch ramps, and boat rentals……..What's not to love?
