Went walking on the trails

Beautiful scenery. Easy trails and very well kept. Love the museum as well. You are also able to go fishing which is also very fun here.

This park has everything you'd want at a park... playgrounds, hiking trails, camping spots including rv locations and cabin rentals, fishing spots, picnic spots, a museum. It's a lovely park. I'd recommend it to everyone.

A beautiful getaway in the North side of Henderson County. We love the camping, walking trails, lake and picnic areas. We've never stayed in the cottages but have visited them when family stays in them and they need updating but are comfortable and clean. All cottage have a view of the lake.

The park is beautiful even though it is small. The trails are shady, lush and peaceful. The RV and tent sites are close and not private.

Even in 100+ temps hiking the shaded trails was lovely. The park is free and offers hiking, a museum, boat ramps, all with many chirping birds in the tree canopy,

Great place for a small to mid size business meeting. We met in the theater. The acoustics were exceptional and seating was comfortable. The seats had a tablet surface for writing which made it very convenient.

Loved the museum and hiking trails. Learned a lot about JJ Audubon life and failures as well as his successes. Henderson is proud of this heritage.

John James Audubon State Park is as close as our back yard for hiking, exploring, birdwatching, and learning! How lucky we are to have some of the BEST trails in the area for seeing wildlife and a huge variety of plant tree species! Along with well-kept trails, this park is SO well maintained, and absolutely beautiful! Clean, good pathways, but... More

The campground was nice with good sites and amenities, plus pet friendly, but highway noise is notable. Sally at the Visitor Center went above and beyond to help with information on the Lewis and Clark Trail Eastern Legacy sites which are in town.
