The small park area has Humpback Bridge on the edge of the property. If you traveling on I64 stop by during the day to stretch your legs, rest and take some nice photos in front of the LOVE theme.

We have driven by the "Humpback Bridge" sign so many times, but we never thought to detour--and we should have! The county maintains a lovely roadside picnic area there, with clean portable restrooms and ample parking.

We had driven down to Covington to go to the Walmart and we were looking for things to do. This was worth stopping by and checking out.
