I love Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park – I always have. Even the beautiful lodge, alone, fascinates me. See the picture at the top and the one below? Unless you’ve spent time at the Park, you probably wouldn’t guess that these are pictures of the same Lodge. The fascinating entry to the lodge (below) with its beautiful columns is beautiful in its own right, but the back view really takes your breath away – the way it sits up on the hill overlooking Kentucky Lake? Stunning.
What can I say, I just love photographing and spending time at this Park.
In fact, I actually wrote something once titled Why Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park Fascinates Me. Simply put, it’s a wonderfully relaxing place to spend a beautiful afternoon.
Below is some exciting news from the Kentucky Sate Parks and it concerns KDV, one of the state’s most popular parks.
A groundbreaking for a new recreational trail at beautiful Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park will be held on Saturday, Jan. 21, at 1 p.m.
The 8.5-mile trail will be open to hikers, runners, mountain bikers and wildlife enthusiasts. The groundbreaking will take place at the park’s horse stables, where the trail starts and ends.
The work has been carried out by volunteers and is expected to be completed in the spring. Natural obstacles will await mountain bikers along with easier routes designed for novice riders and those on foot.
Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park has a lodge, cottages, campground, restaurant, 18-hole golf course, marina, gift shop and many other recreational opportunities. The resort is 21 miles southeast of Paducah. Take Interstate 24 to Exit 27. For information, call 270-362-4271 or visit www.parks.ky.gov.
