Things to do

Kentucky State Parks welcome pets at its 17 resort parks.

Pet owners may bring their pets into lodge rooms and cottages that have been designated for pets. There is a $25 fee for each stay. A limited number of rooms and cottages are available. Pets brought into state park campgrounds must be leashes. Most park trails allow pets on leashes, but there are a few that do not because they are part of a state nature preserve. Check in advance.

Upon check-in, guests who select a pet-friendly room are required to sign a waiver verifying they will comply with the pet policy.

For more information and to make reservations, call the individual park or go to Parks.ky.gov.
