Down at Lake Cumberland, KY an abandoned marina/dock is quietly floating by.
A few weeks ago my good friend Sam was down with some folks at Lake Cumberland when they came across this abandoned marina just quietly floating along. They took their jet skis to it and Sam captured these photos with his iPhone. According to some people he spoke to down there, the dock apparently closed in 2009 and broke away in 2010. Since then it has floated roughly five miles down stream.
In an August 31, 2010 article from the Commonwealth Journal of Somerset, KY, it was reported that the current owners were requesting assistance from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with removing large amounts of debris that were being washed up by heavy rains.
Currently the marina is just slowly drifting along with its rotting docks, an empty building, quiet gas pumps and parts of a pontoon boat in one of the Commonwealth's biggest destinations. According to Sam, the only tenants using the dock currently seem to be mosquitoes.
If you know more about the place, feel free to shoot me an email.
Thanks for the photos, Sam!
