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.

What a beautiful park. Lots of trails to hike on, several lakes to sit at, and a museum of Audubon work to boot. I highly recommend a stop.

The staff is always friendly and helpful, the views of nature and wildlife are awesome, the cabins and cozy but the bedding is quite old and uncomfortable.

Beautiful place to visit and enjoy nature. My sisters and I go every year to the Arts and Crafts festival in October. I've also been during the spring. It's gorgeous!!! I would recommend taking a stroll or just sitting by the water and taking it all in. Awesome!!!

We adore Audubon. My family has been going there since I was a child. The museum has a small fee, which is well worth the cost if you're even remotely interested in: birds, nature, history, or science. They have several well marked hiking trails, and in the summer they have manual paddle and row boats guests can rent extremely cheap... More

My family and I (two small kids) went for a hike in Audubon State Park this past summer. The lady in the visitor center was very helpful when we were deciding which hike to take-we used a stroller for part of it. It was not at all crowded (just saw a couple other people), and the trails were well-maintained. We... More

This is a great location for a picnic. The trees and lake are beautiful no matter what the season is. It's hilly and scenic. Even if you don't have good hiking gear, you get a great sense of the great outdoors by walking on the paved roadways. Great place to take pictures as well!

I knew this was a CCC park and the campground was consistent with that. We camp in a 26 foot class C so we rarely use the showers, etc. As state parks go there was less than normal space per site. Also there was a lot of road noise. Tight turns, some sites were almost impossible to back in to.... More
