All of Your Family is Welcome, Even the Furry Ones!
Carter Caves State Resort Park: A Photographer’s Dream Come True
If you’re anything like me, your pets are like family. They’re just the ones who wear fur, eat on the floor, walk on all four, and actually listen to you.
Well, most of the time anyway.
Thankfully, a lot of places – including the Kentucky State Parks – understand that just because they’re covered in hair doesn’t mean they aren’t family.
The Kentucky State Parks welcomes pets at its 17 state resort parks!
Pet lovers can bring pets into lodge rooms and cottages that have been designated for pets. Pet owners will pay a $25 fee for each stay. A limited number of rooms will be available for pets at each park.
Upon check in, guests who select a pet-friendly room will receive a copy of the park pet policy and will be required to sign a waiver form verifying that they will comply with the policy.
All resort parks with cottages also have a limited number of pet-friendly cottages. Pets may be brought into state park campgrounds as long as they are on a leash.
Most park trails allow pets on a leash. However, there are a few that do not because they are part of a state nature preserve. Please check in advance.
The Kentucky State Parks have 17 resort parks – all featuring a lodge and restaurant. Most resorts also have cottages, campgrounds and other features such as hiking trails, tennis courts, marinas and seasonal recreational programming.
For more information and to make reservations, call the park or visit www.parks.ky.gov. It’s actually a great idea to ALWAYS call an individual park and speak to someone on the phone before jumping in the car.
