Lake Cumberland all better in time for Memorial Day weekend


Somerset —

Morgan said fees at the campground are unchanged from last year.
The only factor that could mute the fun on the water this weekend is the weather, said J.D. Hamilton, owner of Lee’s Ford Marina Resort. A cold front pushing through the area Thursday will drive away summer-like heat, but leave temperatures in the 70s with only a small chance of rain during the holiday period.
“People are excited about the lake,” Hamilton commented, adding: “But the weather this spring has been depressing.”
Somerset’s magnificent water park opens for the season this weekend. Justin Duncan, an employee at the park, said the facility will be open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; on Sunday from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m.; and on Monday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
To top it all, Somernites Cruise will stage its monthly extravaganza downtown this holiday weekend.
