Wildlife Area · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Otter Creek Outdoor Recreation Area (formerly Otter Creek Park) is a 2,600 acre (11 km²) riverfront park in Meade County, Kentucky. The park is located near Muldraugh and Fort Knox, along State Highway 1638, near U.S. 31W. Although it is located outside Louisville, the park was long operated by the city of Louisville and, after the 2003 merger of the city and Jefferson County, Louisville Metro Government. Both entities attempted to give or sell the park to Meade County and the Commonwealth of Kentucky at various times over the years, most recently in 2004. The park closed in 2009 and reopened in 2011. It is now operated by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

  • My husband and I spent two months working here in September and October. It has something for everyone! Hiking, hunting, fishing, horse back riding, disc golf (with great tournaments!), mountain...  more »
  • Creek is deep enough at most parts to walk and still see the bottom and where you cant see the bottom it is great to swim. More people than I expected and if you really want a good time for just you and your family and/or friends then you should take one of the trails or sides of the creek farther down to less populated areas. A little bit of trash but not bad in the water
  • My husband and I absolutely love this park. The staff is wonderful. The park offers so much. The trails are great for whatever level you are at. The creek is beautiful. Our favorite is the campgrounds. We highly recommend it!!!
