State Dock is unique in that during the Poker Run we convert many of our rental houseboats into “boatels”. These houseboats do not leave the marina and are parked on “Houseboat Row” during the Poker Run. They are cheaper than most hotel rooms and you get to stay where the action is. We have boats that sleep from 10 to 16 people.

For availability & pricing, please call State Dock at (888) 782-8336. In addition to boatels, State Dock is located inside the Lake Cumberland State Resort Park. We’ve reserved all rooms for Poker Run participants. They can be reached at (800) 325-1709. While the State Dock and State Resort Park offer quite a bit of lodging, the boatels & rooms book fast.  Below is “Houseboat Row” with all of the houseboats lined up waiting for the incoming Poker Run guests.   We book up fast, so call as early as you can.  If we do not have availability, there are other options that are close by in the area.

Lake Cumberland Poker Run Meeting

We will have great catered food once again for registered entries. First meal served will be Friday dinner followed by three meals on Saturday.  You must be registered in the Poker Run or buy a separate wristband in order to have the catered meals.

“The State Dock Grill” is a great little restaurant located on the Dock.  They have a delicious menu with everything from burger & fries, fresh fish, chicken sandwiches and fresh baked pizza.  They even have hand dipped ice cream.   The State Dock Grill will have extended hours until 2 am during the Poker Run.  You can call them at (270)343-4035 to call in your order ahead of time.

We’ll have a couple of new food vendors this year with even more great tastes for the weekend including delicious barbeque, funnel cakes and bloomin’ onions!

We also have a shuttle service to Lure Lodge in the park, which has a nice dining room overlooking the lake that services breakfast, lunch and dinner.  They usually have a big buffet as well.

Of course no Poker Run weekend is complete without some great music. So we found the best band in Kentucky, straight out of Lexington, Superfecta. Thanks to an all-star roster of the region’s most talented professional vocalists and musicians, Superfecta expertly covers music ranging from jazz standards, fusion jazz, Motown, Funk, Top 40 dance, hip-hop, R&B, and more!

In addition to Superfecta’s standard 7-piece lineup,  on Saturday night, Superfecta H/O will be hitting the stage.  Superfecta H/O  is the High Output, supersized version of Superfecta, which  adds a full 3-part vocal ensemble and the amazing Superfecta Horns to create the region’s most exciting large dance band!
