Natural Bridge State Resort Park invites you to experience a truly magnificent and serene natural environment. Come and explore the beauty of natural arches and rugged sandstone cliff lines. Our greatest attribute remains the same: the "Natural Bridge," This magnificent arch, which is 65 feet tall and 78 feet long, is one of the most famous natural sandstone arches in Kentucky. From the top, visitors can view distant ridge tops and lush green valleys of what has been called "Kentucky’s Land of the Arches." This geological wonderland has an amazing diversity of plant and animal life and is a favorite of hikers and nature lovers.

Lodge Rooms - Delight in the beauty of Hemlock Lodge, which is nestled in the mountainside. Relax in one of its 35 rooms, each with a private balcony overlooking Natural Bridge’s stream-shaped pool and Hoedown Island. Pet-lovers, be sure to ask about pet-friendly rooms when making your reservation.

Cottages - Step out of your cottage into the beautiful ambiance of the surrounding forest. You will be encompassed by beauty in one of four two-bedroom, or seven one-bedroom cottages.

Camping - Enjoy the great outdoors in a park campsite. Two campgrounds, Whittleton Campground and Middle Fork Campground, provide 87 sites with utilities. Tent campsites are also available. Dump stations and two central service buildings with restrooms and showers are furnished for your convenience.

Dining - Enjoy a selection of Kentucky favorites along with a variety of traditional American cuisine in the lodge’s 175-seat Sandstone Arches Restaurant. Sample a little bit of everything during our “all you can eat” buffets, available during peak times and on most weekends.
