Description
Daniel Boone National Forest sits on approximately 2.1 million acres of land that is located in eastern Kentucky near cities or towns like Lexington, London, Stanton, and Morehead. Some of the roads that can be used to access the forest and its resources include I-75 and I-64. The forest land was designated as a national forest on February 23, 1937, and is governed by the U.S. Forest Service.

Visitors to the Daniel Boone National Forest will be awed by several special features that the forest has to offer including interesting geological features like rugged land that is characterized by narrow valleys, cliffs, and steep slopes. Other geographical attractions include Red River Gorge Geological Area, which features over 100 major natural arches and areas of unusual vegetation. 

Other attractive features include several lakes including Cave Run Lake, Laurel River Lake, and Lake Cumberland. The forest also hosts several man-made amenities some of which include Cumberland Falls and Natural Bridge state resort parks, three group camps, marinas, picnic sites, boat ramps, 20 campgrounds, swimming beaches, and several trails. 

These facilities are useful because they allow visitors to enjoy popular activities like boating, camping, horseback riding, fishing, swimming, water-skiing, hunting, hiking, rock climbing, and spelunking. If you are a dog owner, then rest assured that you can bring your pooch into Daniel Boone National Forest as long as you remember to stick to the forest's strict rules. 

First, you must keep your dog on a leash at all times (or in a secure enclosure). The dog’s leash must not be more than six feet in length. Additionally, you are expected to keep your dog from venturing into areas of the forest that are out-of-bounds to dogs and other pets. If your dog poops, then you are expected to clean up after your dog and to dispose of the poop in the right manner.
