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.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • we love to go there to go 4 wheeling with friends and family there is something different trails that you can ride that is easily marked and whenever they have the events we always have a blast
  • This is a fantastic adventure and you and your family will be better for it! Bring the whole crew!
