One of Kentucky’s most popular State Parks is Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park. Located right on Kentucky Lake, the setting couldn’t be more beautiful. The lodge, itself, is a historically beautiful sight. Anytime you have a chance to visit this park is one you should take advantage of. I could, literally, spend an entire day there – visiting the guest shop, walking along by the lake, enjoying a cup of coffee in the restaurant, sitting and reading an Agatha Christie book on the back patio… It’s just a beautiful place to spend some time.
If you love bees, gardens, and butterflies, Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park has something that’ll be of interest to you. The Park will host the Friends of Pollinators Weekend Aug. 19-21.
The weekend, co-sponsored by the Garden Club of Kentucky, features workshops on container gardens, native trees and shrubs, bees, rain gardens, photographing pollinators and creating a monarch waystation. The workshops begin Friday evening and run through Sunday morning.
