Fort Boonesborough State Park, Richmond, KY

Date of Stay:  Monday August 6 - Wednesday August 8, 2012 (2 nights)

Rate:  $25/night

Website:  Fort Boonesborough State Park (KY)
   4375 Boonesborough Road
   Richmond, KY 40475

Description:  About 160 sites on paved roads and parking pads.  Water and 50A although we shared a water pedestal with our neighbors Dan and Tricia.  Laundry in the bathhouse and dump station near the exit.  Putt putt is near the camp store and there is a nice swimming pool at the day use area.  We stayed in site 135 which was close to the Kentucky River.  There is an asphalt plant or something across the river but it can’t be seen due to the surrounded wooded areas.  This park is convenient to I-64 and I-75. 

Activities:  This was our last travel stop with Tricia and Dan so we enjoyed one of the nice features of this park which is the working Fort Boonesborough.  It’s a reconstruction of the 1775 fort established by Daniel Boone.  There were several artisans showing us how things were done in pioneer days.  We also enjoyed a nice ride in the countryside amongst the rolling hills.

Trash and Recycle:  Dumpsters near the bathhouses.  No recycling noticed.
