  • The country-side is very beautiful and a great place to ride. The park is well kept and it is interesting to see the original site of Boonesborough. If you want to visit the reconstructed fort, be sur...  read more »
  • This was the second time I have come to the reenactment. I have learned something new each time. The fort does a good job condensing the story of the 11 day siege into a 1 hour program. There are othe...  read more »
  • This is at least my second review of Fort Boonesboro State Park in Richmond Kentucky. The park is always clean, the staff friendly, and they have a nice camp store to pick up items you need or forgot....  read more »
  • Overrun with ferrell cats and racoon's that are not at all afraid to keep you from having a fire in the evenings. They become very active at night and will chase you growling. Also full price admission to the pool is ridiculous for campers and it is only 3.5' at the deepest location. Also the pool manager was a very rude person unless you were her local friend. The Fort only had 4 cabins occupied by artisans that were not that knowledgeable or interested in talking to visitors. Also charged full price (over$50) for the fort that was 80% empty/closed. Poorly managed park. Grass overgrown and not astitically pleasing. Highway traffic noise is also very noticeable and makes it hard to sleep. Stay away if you want to relax and get what you are paying for.
  • I had not been there since I was in elementary school many years ago. It is even better than I remember. There is now a film to see that helped with the history. The demonstrators were very willing to share their knowledge. It was fun throwing an ax at a target. Pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
  • If you're interested in early american history like I am, Ft. Boonesboro is not to be missed. A little imagination is all you need as you walk around the inside of the fort and take a gander inside all the structures ... you can get a real feel for what life would have been like for the early settlers of the region. A trip to the area can be made even more interesting by the many other natural and historic sites in the area.
  • Awesome state park. From the campground to the historical displays, the park is well laid out and maintained. The fort is very interesting and handicapped accessible. Well worth a weekend of exploring.
  • BEAUTIFUL facility! Our first time staying at a Kentucky State Park... as we are from Michigan. Loved the bath and Laundry facilities. Campground extremely cared for. We had not planned a trip here but stopped as needed a break from driving to Tennessee. Super freindly, got us in had a great spot. The only reason not giving 5 stars wad the noise... construction type equipment during the day, and highway close by. Pool was closed but it looked amazing!
