Family playing in open campsite setting

Camping

There are 30 campgrounds in the Kentucky State Park system, spread out across the state so you’re not too far from being able to enjoy the outdoors. Four parks – Dale Hollow Lake, Pennyrile Forest, Taylorsville Lake and Carter Caves – also offer equestrian-friendly sites. 
 

Each public campsite facility offers amenities such as restrooms, trail access, RV electric and water hookups, a fire ring, table and more — all in a beautiful setting with affordable rates. 

 

The next Camper Appreciation Weekend will be April 28 - April 30, 2023.
