Very beautiful drive well worth the effort to get there. Some white knuckle driving on the way. This was on our way through Kentucky, while doing the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The area was fantastic.

My family and I camped here overnight one weekend with some family friends. This is a very child friendly camping environment. The camp grounds sit at the top of a hill. The grounds are very well-kept (no trash lying around, grass around campgrounds is mowed). Firewood is provided up request (they ask that you do not bring your own firewood... More

You just have to plan ahead. Navigate their website for necessary information. And if you'd rather head to the visitor's center, it's also a great source for information. Complete with maps, snacks, and bathrooms, as well as a staff person to help, the visitor's center is a great place to begin your adventure. If you are a family with small... More

My husband and I love to go hiking at Jefferson Memorial Forest! About fifteen minutes from downtown Louisville, JMF offers the greatest variety of trails in the area. There are several sections to the park area. Be sure to start your day at the Welcome Center and pick up trail maps there. Trail options include loops and one-ways. The recently... More

Has picnic area, meadow, and enough area by the water for a nice picnic. Secluded enough for romance, but you should expect to see a... More

I had been to Louisville KY about 5-6 times before, but never having time to explore some of its trail running areas. Well well well... the Siltstone Trail, located in the Jefferson Memorial Forest, is well worth the detour. If your aim is to run/walk one of the slowest 10km of your life, then you have found your spot. Hill... More
