FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky State Parks have some great holiday gift ideas for you and your family.


The ideas include wildlife viewing trips such as the Eagle Watch Weekends at three western Kentucky state resort parks, the Sandhill Crane Weekends at Barren River Lake State Resort Park and the elk viewing tours in eastern Kentucky.


“These trips and packages make perfect gifts for family members and friends, especially when you’re trying to find the perfect gift for someone who has everything,” said Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker. “These gifts are great for family gatherings, or just when a couple wants to get away for a weekend.”


Also on the list are overnight golf packages, state park gift cards and the Commonwealth Getaway Package. This package for $149 plus tax includes a lodge room for one night and three meals for two people.  The packages are subject to availability.
