Spent about 2 hours at Fort Boonesbourgh. Started with a movie explaining the history. People dressed in period costumes explaining there trade. Very well done. One of the nicest State parks we have been to. Kentucky should be very proud.

The price to see this replica of Boonesborough Fort is way too expensive for what is there. Completely disappointed. Save your money and google the information. Very uninformative and completely boring....btw...I love history and crushed it was so bad.

Worth seeing. Historical site. Self guided tour. Check internet for summer dates of extra shows and reenactments. Staff here are informative and knowledgeable about activities and crafts of the period of the U.S. Revolutionary War. Many stations involve actual demonstrations or interactions.

It was convenient for us to camp here and explore Richmond and Berea. It was full so glad we made reservations. Campers are close together so no privacy. Facilities and staff were excellent

The fort itself is nice. The camping area has the "beach" area, pool, and mini golf. Good parking. Have't been in a while but I always enjoyed it.

My family went to the fort on a beautiful spring day. It had had just re-opened for the season a few days prior to our visit, and it wasn't crowded. The few volunteers who were there provided information on dying wool, making ointments from flowers,...More

Fort Boonesborough State Park is less than 20 minutes from my house, and a place that I spent a lot of time as a kid. The main attraction is the fort itself, and it's well worth the price of admission to tour. The park groups...More

We took our RV there and had a great time. It’s close to I 75 and easy to find. Our timing wasn’t the best as the pool was closed for the season but it appeared to be fairly large with an adequate number of chairs,...More
