After careful discussions with the state parks, and the state health department, it was determined that the COVID-19 virus is simply too unpredictable to allow a meeting where we can reasonably ensure the safety of our members and each of you. The KWOA board decided to wait a year, so we have rescheduled to September of 2021, with the hope that advances can be made in prevention and treatment.
KWOA apologizes for the inconvenience that all of these changes have caused. We have rescheduled for the 28th & 29th of September 2021. Please look at your calendars and let us know if you will be available on those dates. Also, if you have made reservations for lodging at the park you will want to call and cancel them before September 20, 2020 to avoid being charged for the room. If you are available and will be with us next September you can simply reschedule your accommodations. Please wait until after Monday August 17, to allow the Park to get our arrangements transferred in their system. You can contact Lake Cumberland State Park by calling 270-343-3111.
