Come and check out the cream of the crop in Kentucky! Yatesville Lake State Park is the place to go for beautiful sights, good times, and golf! That's right -- this state park offers its very own 18-hole course with incredible views of the surrounding mountains as the backdrop.
There are campsites to suit every outdoorsy person's needs, with some lots only accessible via trail or boat. If you and your doggo are a bit less adventurous, you can also stay at the park's many full-hookup campsites (accessible by regular old vehicles). That being said, there's no shame in not wanting to ruff it here, as there is a full marina on-site complete with a camp store selling all of the food and supplies you need to have a barktastic vacation. Camping fees start at $18 a night for midweek stays at the boat-in sites and go all the way up to $30 for holiday stays on the full-hookup lots.
When you're not teeing off at Yatesville Lake's golf course, you might find yourself wandering the many trails that wind their way through the park. There are two different trail systems found here, along with the official Yatesville Lake Multi-Use Trail, where you and Fido can spend hours trekking through the Kentucky terrain together. On the other trail systems, look out for posted signs prohibiting puppers from historical sites as you head out on your adventures to avoid getting ousted on your journey!
For much of the summer, you'll find most of the other campers down at the lake, getting their fill of water-skiing, fishing, sunbathing, and swimming in the waves. Boating is a big deal here, and if you don't happen to have a watercraft of your own, you can rent one within the park!
Your canine companion is more than welcome to come along for the fun -- as long as they stay on-leash and out of any buildings or designated swim zones. To keep this place pooch-positive, be sure to do your share by cleaning up after your furry pal throughout your visit.
