Elk were reintroduced to Kentucky in 1997 as a restoration project by the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife.  From 1997 - 2003 approximately 1513 elk were transported into Kentucky.  Reproduction has been very high, with approximately 90% of the adult cows producing calves.  Currently, the estimated elk population in Kentucky is over 10,000 elk.  The best areas for elk habitat are on reclaimed surface mines in Eastern Kentucky.

Jenny Wiley State Resort Park is sponsoring elk tours at a cost of $30/person or $15/children 12 and under.  This fee includes your transportation via van to the viewing sites and continental breakfast.  We also offer Tour Packages that include lodging, dinner, and elk tour with continental breakfast for $160 per couple.  Please choose a date to pre-register, as the tours do fill up quickly.  Also, special group and business tours are available.
