Description

If you have a history loving hound then a visit to Fort Boonesborough State Park is a must. Fort Boonesborough State Park is a full scale replica of an old fort established by the great American frontiersman Daniel Boone. Your pooch will be fascinated with the old way of life and will leave more appreciative of their cozy bed and chew toys.

Step back in time and experience what life was like for early American settlers. Although pups aren’t allowed in the fort’s buildings they can wander around the park and get a feel for frontier life. At less than a mile, the trails are short but still a nice walk. The Halley Home Site Trail connects the Fort Trail and Pioneer Forage Trail. It passes an old rock wall, some wagon remnants, and a section of the babbling creek called Spring Run Branch. Be sure to pack some plastic poop bags as well as enough water for the two of you.

Besides the historical displays, the park features a miniature golf course, a swimming pool, and a museum. Since the park is nestled on the banks of the Kentucky River, fishing and boating are also pupular activities. And puptacular picnic areas with tables and grills are scattered throughout the park. Pack a sandwich for you and some biscuits for your pup and stick around for a lovely outdoor lunch. Or bring the whole pack along for a barbecue.

If you want a longer stay at Fort Boonesborough, reserve one of the 167 campsites. Since they have electricity, water, showers, laundry facilities, WiFi, and modern restrooms, you will feel right at home. The campground is open year round, so your pup can enjoy a nice weekend getaway no matter what month it may be.

Make no mistake, your furry friend will go mutts over Fort Boonesborough State Park!
