I would encourage anyone who has not visited this beautiful park to take some time to check out all that it has to offer. The museum has plenty of art and history regarding John James Audubon. They also host art showings for local artists. The trails are great walking trails through the woods. They offer RV Camp Sites as well... More

Although this park is not really big it is well worth visiting the museum shows so many pictures that James Audubon painted. My daughter had her wedding there and it was wonderful.

I spent most of a day here and thought this was a beautiful park. The highlight for me was the Audubon Museum because I'm an avid birdwatcher. The museum was extremely well done and covered his entire life, including the decade (1810-1819) that he lived in Henderson, KY. It contained a lot of original Audubon artwork, personal items, and information... More

This should never be asked again by a child in America. Ever. Mine had the gall to ask that aloud. You'd think, after twelve years, he'd figure out that a spate of learning was about to happen. This is a beautiful legacy to an amazing man. Who draws birds in all their spare time? I mean in between building mills,... More

We had high hopes for a long hike then going for a big lunch. We didn't think to check the park website, and I'm sure they consider their selves "pet friendly" since they give you a whole .9 mile trail that your dog is aloud on. We were very disappointed. We thought we would make the best of it and... More

I am sorry that you did not have a good day. We want all our guests to have a positive experience. The "pet friendly" statement that you are referring to on our website applies to our cabins located in the park. We are also pet friendly throughout the park as long as your pet is on a leash. The only... More

There is a $4 fee for the museum but my husband is retired military so the fee was waved. The museum holds a lot of personal items of John James as well as historical background on his life and family. To get up close and see his sketch books with the details of animals and birds he captured is amazing.... More

I was down by the boat docks and drove through the park but never went on the trails. Still, it was absolutely gorgeous! So much so, that we had our family photos done there! It's a great place to relax and camp and just soak in some nature.

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.

Thank Christine H
