Probably the number one recommendation we got for our time in Kentucky was to tour the famous bourbon distilleries. Coming in at a close second was the Kentucky Horse Park. So for our second week in the Bluegrass State we decided to do both.
The Horse Park is located just north of Lexington in central Kentucky. It’s a state park that has more of a private park feel due to the lack of privacy between sites and amenities such as a giant swimming pool (which was closed for the season), and lots of stuff for the kids.
We arrived on a Thursday with no reservations to find a completely booked campground. Oops…turns out it was the first weekend of their annual Halloween Camp Out. Luckily, they also have a primitive electric and primitive non-electric area that are non-reservable.
The primitive non-electric area, on the other hand, is a massive, grassy area bordered by trees. This space had the feeling of a boondocking location while still providing access to everything the park offers (like laundry, showers, and recycling). For $20 a night it was nearly perfect.
