The park is so serene & peaceful. I love to walk the trails and visit the museum. They also have cabins that you can rent, and an RV park. When I was a kid, we could go swimming in the lake, but no more. I miss that.

Thank Julie L

Have always appreciated the beauty of Audubon State Park but have never known how awesome the museum is. And the gift shop cannot be missed!

Love walking the trails at Audubon State Park. Fall is a beautiful time to go when the leaves start changing. Paddle boat across the lake with the kids. Love the museum and bird watching area also!

If you are traveling thru this is a good place to get off the road and cool off. Lots of places to walk around in the woods on trials and just stretch your legs.. Lots of good places to eat a snack (several tables).

We stopped by this Kentucky State Park early on a Sunday afternoon and were really impressed by the CCC buildings, the museum, the nature center, and the trails, which are really well marked. I could sit for hours watching the birds, including goldfinches(!), eating outside the window. Definitely pay the admission to visit the museum, which also lets you climb... More

We visited briefly with just enough time for the museum tour. We drove around the lovely grounds and would like to come back and hike some when we have more time. The museum is very nice, and totally focused on on the life and art of Audubon. Any nature lover will enjoy the collection and learning his history and the... More

John James Audubon Park in Henderson, KY is truly a gem hidden among the hub-bub of the surrounding town. The two main buildings in the middle of the park are beautiful, and a must-see. The nature center has a great observation room for watching the bird feeders. We spent an hour there just watching the hummingbirds. Their museum, gift shop... More

We made a point to travel here because John James Audubon was an ancestor. The museum here is quite impressive. It gives a full account of Audubon's life. It has many prints and original artifacts. Well worth a visit for anyone interested in history.

Thank JohnOlsen
