Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Golf Course – immaculately beautiful.
As someone who is in love with Kentucky’s State Parks, I’m really excited to tell you about a contest in which you can show your support for one (or even several!) of your favorite State Parks.
Fans of Kentucky State Parks have a chance to vote for their favorite park through the third annual Coca-Cola Ã¢â?¬Å?America is Your ParkÃ¢â?¬Â contest.
The park with the most votes will receive a $100,000 recreation grant from Coca-Cola. The second-place park will receive $50,000, and third place will receive $25,000. These recreation grants are provided to help restore, rebuild or enhance activity areas in parks where people can play and be active.Ã?Â That’s A LOT of money and I’d LOVE to see one of our amazing Kentucky State Parks walk away with it.
The deadline for voting is July 15, 2012.
Voting is easy. Visit www.livepositively.com/parks to earn one vote per click for your favorite Kentucky State Park. You can also vote by checking in from your favorite state park. More details are available by visiting the website.
You can vote more than once, by the way – trust me, I’ve been voting like a woman possessed. 🙂
Lake Cumberland State Resort Park Cottages in the trees… surrounded by deer, birds, squirrels, and outrageous beauty.
Our Kentucky State Parks are something we can all be very proud of. They’re ideal places to spend an evening, a weekend, or an entire vacation. The food at the Kentucky State Resort Parks is always outstanding. I wish I had a dollar for every piece of catfish I’ve eaten at our state resort parks… better yet, keep the dollars, just give me more catfish!
Gorgeous Lake Barkley Lodge at the Lake Barkley State Resort Park – this lodge is something really, really, really special. You have to see it for yourself!

One of several deer we saw recently on Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park’s Golf Course. Gorgeous Golf Course, uncommonly friendly staff and an equally friendly and knowledgeable golf pro.
