Whether it's summer, winter or somewhere in between, Kentucky State Parks are the perfect place to have fun, unwind and build relationships. Choice would be the word to describe the recreational opportunities. With championship golf courses, marinas, multi-use trails, horseback riding, tennis courts and swimming pools, state parks are Kentucky’s playground. Our parks are also vast lakes, mountaintops, caves and wildlife viewing.


 

You may choose to sit back, relax and let the kids run free. Reconnect with family and friends while discovering and exploring our natural resources. To introduce you to the unique features and opportunities at each park, our talented recreation and interpretation staff provides educational and entertaining programs for all ages and interests.
