If you’ve never been to Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park, I’m here to tell you that you’re missing out on something extra special. The beautiful scenery and the cozy lodge are really something else – and the fried catfish sandwich just might be the best one in the entire state of Kentucky. The food is always really, really, really good in this state park’s restaurant (located downstairs in the lodge).
When I had to give up gluten and wheat, visions of the epic fried catifsh sandwich at Pennyrile broke my heart in two. See the picture below and you’ll understand why.
The following event has passed, but you can find up-to-the-minute Kentucky Events on our Events Page. Also, check out some of the best things to do in Kentucky… most importantly, just get out there and enjoy our beautiful state!
