Forty-five Kentucky State Parks are located at some of the most scenic and culturally significant places in the Bluegrass State. You'll find them at natural wonders like Pine Mountain and Natural Bridge, on major lakes and reservoirs, and at sites with special historical importance, such as Fort Boonesborough and Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site. Adventure abounds at our state parks, from whitewater rafting at Breaks Interstate Park to boating and biking at Green River Lake. You can even tee off at nationally recognized golf courses such as those at Mineral Mound State Park and General Burnside Island State Park.

Kentucky State Resort Parks

In addition to natural beauty and splendid views of the Kentucky landscape, Kentucky State Resort Parks offer full-service lodges and cottages, Kentucky Proud cuisine and amenities like marinas and equestrian camps. Examples include Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, home of the historic DuPont Lodge; Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park, located near the famous Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area; and Jenny Wiley State Resort Park in the Kentucky Appalachians, where you can spend your days fishing or elk watching and end your evening under the stars with a show at the outdoor amphitheater.
