The Next Best Thing to Actually Being There!
One of our favorite Kentucky State Resort Park Lodges: Rough River’s Cozy Lodge
Okay, this is too cool. It goes without saying, the BEST way to enjoy the beautiful Kentucky State Parks (as well as their Lodges) is to do so in person. However, the Kentucky State Park System has come up with the next best thing. When you can’t “be there in person,” you can “virtually be there in person.”
I could never totally explain this really cool new feature on their website, so I’ll simply give you the link: Tour Kentucky State Park Lodges.
I can do a better job of explaining WHY you should frequently visit the 49 Kentucky State Parks. They’re amazing! I strongly recommend doing a little research and planning overnight trips and even “one day getaways” to as many of the Kentucky State Parks as you can.
As a history buff, one of the things I love most about our Kentucky State Parks is the fact that they celebrate our state’s rich history and do so in a way that’s entertaining for kids of all ages. I even love the fact that a lot of the lodges are charmingly old. Like old homes, this only gives them more character! Each of the lodges represent their park beautifully. When we’re visiting the state resort parks, we find ourselves sitting for hours in the lodge (usually before or after we’ve eaten in their restaurant!). You can get the “feel” for a particular State Resort Park (and even the general area) simply by sitting in the lodge – listening to and observing everything around you.
Each lodge also has colorful and informative brochures detailing the history of the park as well as events.
You can find all the information you’ll ever possibly need about the park system on the Kentucky State Parks Official Website.
We also have a great deal of information, reviews, and pictures (tons of those!) when it comes to the State Parks. See the links below.
