The Complete Guide to Kentucky State Parks

The Complete Guide to Kentucky State Parks is the one-stop resource for information on great places to view Kentucky’s natural beauty, tour historical sites, golf, camp, fish, hike, backpack, swim, ride horseback, rock climb, and enjoy almost any other type of outdoor recreation. Whether you are a day tripper, weekend escapee, or weeklong camper, this unique guide is ideal for any one of the seven million visitors who enjoy Kentucky state parks each year. Author Susan Reigler showcases all forty-nine state parks and historical sites, as well as the Kentucky Horse Park, the Breaks Interstate Park, and the Falls of the Ohio State Park.

The book contains vivid details and numerous lush photographs and is organized geographically to help with planning trips around the state. A comprehensive map is included for each region. For every park, the essential information is provided:

• Natural or historical attractions of the park

• Types of recreation available

• Camping and lodging facilities, museums, and gift shops

• Addresses and phone numbers

• Magnificent color photographs—170 in all.

If you want to see the moonbow at Cumberland Falls, one of only two in the world, to listen for a ghostly bugle at Perryville Battlefield, or to explore the longest cave system in the world, let this book be your guide. Don’t be without it when planning your vacation in Kentucky.

“These are the Kentucky state parks and historical locations I recognize. All of them, except nine, Nina and I have visited. In fact, we had our delayed honeymoon in a cabin at Natural Bridge State Park—in a snowstorm—in 1959! Luxuriate in these pictures and narratives—but, by all means, visit them yourselves. Then, write your own stories.”—Nick and Nina Clooney

    When I was a child we had family reunions in Kentucky, usually at a different campground each year. This book would bring back such great memories!
