FRANKFORT, Ky. – Want to bring your four-legged family member with you when you visit your favorite Kentucky State Park?

 

The Kentucky State Parks welcomes pets at its 17 state resort parks.

 

Pet owners can bring pets into lodge rooms and cottages that have been designated for pets. Pet owners will pay a $25 fee for each stay. A limited number of rooms will be available for pets at each park.

 

Upon check in, guests who select a pet-friendly room will receive a copy of the park pet policy and will be required to sign a waiver form verifying that they will comply with the policy. 

 

All resort parks with cottages also have a limited number of pet-friendly cottages. Pets may be brought into state park campgrounds as long as they are on a leash.

 

Most park trails allow pets on a leash. However, there are a few that do not because they are part of a state nature preserve. Please check in advance.

 

The Kentucky State Parks have 17 resort parks – all featuring a lodge and restaurant. Most resorts also have cottages, campgrounds and other features such as hiking trails, tennis courts, marinas and seasonal recreational programming.
