  • Small, but nice state park. It is a bit out of the way, but like much of eastern Kentucky the roads to it are pretty and enjoyable if one likes hills and trees and small towns. We enjoyed the lake...

  • This park earns its name. The long, gently winding road that leads through the dense Kentucky forest gives you the feeling that you are reaching Kingdom Come. It's a magnificent park with several...

  • The manager was very polite and knowledgeable of interesting sights. The gift shop had sensibly priced souvenirs. I enjoyed the nine hole put-put golf course. The paddle boat was a cool way to work off the days dinner. The gift shop had duck and fish food that the children enjoyed interacting with the ducks and seeing the cat fish come up and eat.
  • Very nice place to go and take your family. They go to a lot of work to have different events here and it's great. We did the Halloween haunted house here last year and it was so fun. They had hot cocoa after words and the park is clean and beautiful now. Wished they had way more play ground equipment for the kids and some kind of swings or benches for adults but maybe they will later on. They have some great hiking trails that really take your breathe away with the beauty.
