Sure, you and your pooch could explore Levi Jackson State Park in a day, but why rush it when you can park your RV or pitch your tent at the park’s furrific campground? Levi Jackson State Park Campground comes with all the creature comforts you and your pooch could ask for -- there’s 30 and 50 amp electric hookups, water and sewage hookups, a shower station, and even a camp store, so there’s no need to waste precious luggage space on supplies! Non-furry family members might also enjoy the swimming pool and the rec room. There are only nineteen tent-only sites, but budget travelers might want to take the no-frills option, as these sites go for just $20. RV sites start at $32. The campground fills up quickly in the summer, so it’s best to book early!
There’s no way you and your buddy will be bored during your stay -- Levi Jackson State Park offers something for everyone. The park was created to celebrate the achievements and strong spirit of early Kentucky pioneers -- your pooch won’t be allowed in any of the museums, of course, but hound dog history buffs can still walk in the steps of these settlers on the park’s very own stretch of the Wilderness Road or Boone’s Trace.
There are several other trails for you two to sniff and explore, running through the park’s serene wooded hillsides. Avid birders will be glad to know that the park is home to all sorts of flying feathered critters, including warblers, vireos, and the occasional American redstart! The mini golf course is sure to keep two-legged children entertained (for about an hour, at least).
Wifi is available at Levi Jackson State Park, but you’ll have to pay by the day, and rates start at $3.99. Campfires are permitted, and drinking water and a dump station are available on-site. Remember to bring waste bags for your four-pawed pal, and have a furrific trip!
