Wilderness Road State Park, Ewing
(4.4/5 based on 30 reviews on the web)
The park is about 310 acres that lie astride the Wilderness Road, a route carved by Daniel Boone in 1775. The route, which followed a buffalo trace, opened America’s first western frontier. Most notable in the park are the Karlan Mansion built in the 1877, a state-of-the-art visitor center and Martin's Station, a replica of a colonial frontier fort that was near this site in 1775.

  • At the May Raid at Martin's Station, you will see hundreds of historically accurate re-enactors bring to life the trek of ordinary people west to finally have a chance to own land. The fort was built ...  more »
  • anybody coming down highway 58 needs to stop by this beautiful state park on the way to Cumberland gap! state of the art welcome center has a new museum bookstore and auditorium to enjoy! 
  • Great park with lots of activities. Connected to the rail trail for hikers or bikers. Has pavilions for picnics or reunions. The fort is really cool and they have living history events.

  • They have Buffalo! However, that's about it. There is a nice little fort and park area and parking is pricey. Small one trail hiking, not much but a nice little find.
  • Loved the cabins and able to walk around and see how people in the area used to live. The staff and reenactors were friendly and informative!
  • There were some cool things there, a short hiking trail, a pioneer village, and buffalo. They do charge a low fee of a few bucks for parking, but there is enough to see and do to make it worth it.
  • We traveled several hours to visit this park. According to the website it opens at 8 we arrived at 10. They charged us to enter. We went to visitors center/gift shop. We asked about the movie and was told it was broke. We shopped for a few minutes and went to visit the fort and was told there were no employees so no live scenes. Without the live scenes it is just empty buildings. What a waste of a trip. CALL before you go since while they are open they are not up and running.
  • Our friends and I enjoyed our visit very much . The Rangers and guide at the fort were very nice and helpful. Can't wait to visit again in the spring. Can't wait to hike the trails.
