Website: Kentucky Horse Park CG
4089 Iron Works Parkway
Lexington, KY 40511
Description: This is a large (260 sites) campground near I-75 and I-64 in Lexington. The roads and sites are paved with all being 90* back-in and unlevel. The sites are large W/E(50 A) but it feels more like a commercial park than a state park. We stayed on site 22 with T&D on site 23. There are a couple of playgrounds and bathhouses along with tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, and a large swimming pool. There are large fields for overflow and primitive sites along with two double dump stations. The cg is adjacent to the Kentucky Horse Park which is a large complex dedicated to everything horse such as museums and stadiums. A competition had just completed when we arrived.
Trash and Recycle: Dumpsters in the middle of each large loop for trash and only a few small bins for recycle (soda cans, bottles, plastic and paper).
Activities: We had planned to bike the nearby Legacy Trail and enjoy some of the Horse Park but the four of us were either just getting over a bad cold or coming down with it. We just relaxed and recuperated instead.
