View from Pine Mountain State Resort Park
I know I’ve told you probably 3, 544. 633 times how beautiful Pine Mountain State Resort Park is – but if you’ve seen it for yourself, you know why I’m a broken record. If you haven’t seen the beautiful park set in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, I hope you’ll go soon.
The park is picturesque and downright breathtaking anytime of the year. In fact, if I could be assured of access to gluten free food in the park’s restaurant, I think a weekend at the park’s lodge – looking out at snow-covered mountains would be the experience of a lifetime.
If you’re counting, that makes 3, 544. 634.
If you love owls, the following press release from the Kentucky State Parks is right up your tree.
Pine Mountain State Resort Park Lodge
From the State Parks:
The evening will begin at 7 p.m. with a program on “Silent Predators of the Night” conducted by Mitch Whitaker of the Letcher County Rehabilitation and Education Center with live owls. Guests who plan to take the hike will gather at 8 p.m. in the upper lobby.
The group will drive to the old campground for the owl prowl led by naturalists from Cumberland Gap National Historical Park and Pine Mountain State Resort Park.
Guests should bring a small flashlight or headlamp (red light preferred), binoculars, and appropriate clothing for the weather. The park’s restaurant and lodge will be open and a special lodging rate for owl prowl guests is available. The event is free.
For more information, call 606-337-3066.
Pine Mountain State Resort Park has a 30-room lodge, cottages and a full-service restaurant. It also has a golf course and other recreational opportunities for guests. Pine Mountain State Resort Park is located south of Pineville, on US 25E, 10 miles north of Middlesboro.
