Kentucky Horse Park CG State Park, Lexington, KY

Date:  Sunday June 19 – Thursday June 23, 2016 (4 nights)

Rate:  $37/night

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.

  1. So sorry all of you weren't feeling well. Lots to see and do at this park. We haven't been able to ride the bike trail yet, but the horse park is wonderful. Just glad all of you are getting better and will be able to enjoy the rest of your summer travels.
