Was here with family, we utilized the hiking trail around the very small lake. Trail was challenging with lots of ups and downs. This would have been more fun on bikes. They have very few RV sites...

My husband and I rented a cabin for 2 nights here at Legions State Park. We stayed in cabin 5. It was perfect for us. Small, cozy, very rustic with a stone fireplace and a nice porch. This cabin overlooked a beautiful lake. This time of the year the leaves were beautiful fall colors and it was nice and cool. We had a nice fire going both nights. We did bring our on firewood. I suggest a full size memory foam for bed too because the one in cabin isn't real comfortable. The kitchen had electric stove and microwave, some dishes, pots and silverware and a coffee maker. We brought our own bed linens but the bed was made in the cabin. It did have bathroom soaps, wash clothes and towels, but we also brought our own. The park is well kept. The ranger at the front was so nice. We walked to the lodge, it was nice and the bridges at the lake. Took some pretty pictures there. It was the perfect getaway for us to unplug and relax. We enjoyed the cabin, the park, the town of Louisville, and meeting the friendly people Louisville.
Well Not many people know about the Park and is not good because they have many things that you can do and the animals are not scared of people they pose for you was funny you can find a little park for the kids to play on the entrance, Many Cabins that can be rented, RV Site, Primitive Camping Area, No Hunting or Gun allowed that make you feel more save, Trials to hike on the beautiful forest and close to Lake, The David Love Fair, Jr. Memorial Pavilion, The Historic Legion Lodge, You can Fish, they have bathrooms, Mini Golf, Pavilions and other things that you need to explore is not so big but you can relax. Take a Break to enjoy the forest and be amazed the beauty of the nature.
