  • Some of the most beautiful overlooks in Kentucky. So much to do, numerous hiking opportunities, fishing, camping, playgrounds etc. You can spend hours or days exploring and having fun alone or with friends and family. Easy access to the majority of the park. Well worth it to put it on your to do list.
  • I visit family in Ky and always love coming here. My heart is set in the mountains...and there is such a magnificent view near the top of the park. Great playgrounds, great shelters. I wish I could come more often than I do.
  • Beautiful Park.so well-maintained a very safe nice lake place to fish picnic tables grills great hiking trails nicely shaded. In one day we saw a black bear, a mother deer and her fawn, ducks and a lot of turkeys.
  • Had a great hike up to the amphitheater for lunch. Fishing at the lake is always fun. There's also mini-golf and paddle boats!
  • Beautiful views and got to experience and amazing thunder storm while there
