FRANKFORT, Ky. – If you’re still looking for that last stocking stuffer or perhaps a different gift for a loved one for the holidays, let the Kentucky State Parks lend a hand!
Kentucky State Park gift cards are convenient and easy to use at all parks for most expenses.
The cards are available in any denomination starting at $10. You can also add money to the card to keep using it for future park trips. There is a $3 shipping fee per order.
There are three ways to purchase gift cards: You can visit a resort park and buy one in person; call 502-564-2172, ext. 248 (available Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m.); or you can go online through the Kentucky State Park website at www.parks.ky.gov.
The Kentucky State Parks will be open this winter, and your gift card can be used for such things as lodging, special events like wildlife tours, gift shop purchases or for meals at the 17 resort park restaurants.
All 16 Kentucky State Park golf courses will be open during the winter, weather permitting.
Another great gift idea for golfers is the Kentucky State Park Golf Discount Card for $20 to $25 that provides four discounted rounds of golf and a fifth round for free. Annual golf passes are also available. For more information on gift cards, annual passes, daily rates and golf packages visit http://www.parks.ky.gov/golf/
