Travels With Minnie: Carter Caves State Resort Park

The Welcome Center & Gift Shop

Our westward bound journey began with a two-night stop at Carter Caves State Resort Park in Kentucky. What a great family park…2,000 acres of forest and fun!
We reserved a campsite over a week ago and were not disappointed with our choice.

The park has over 30 miles of hiking trails, half of which are multi-use trails for hikers, bikers or horseback riders. In addition, fishing, boating, canoeing, swimming, golfing and rock climbing offer something for just about everyone. If camping isn’t your thing, there are several overnight accommodations available.

We didn’t have the best of weather, but we zipped up our rain jackets and took the short walk along Natural Bridge Trail.
This is the only natural bridge in Kentucky that supports a paved highway.

There are plenty of caves to explore in this park. Some are self-guided (with a permit) while others require a guide. We opted to stay above ground this trip…maybe next time!

    When I saw the first photo(s) of Minnie, I thought you had a split level trailer! Ha! Your location looks fabulous and I’m envious of the rain…though I know it put a hitch in your hiking…everything has dried out so early here…plus it’s 100* this week!! So glad you’re headed west again-we look forward to seeing you-whenever you get home!

    • Minnie has bunk beds in the back…so you and Ken can still come camp with us! 🙂
      We’re heading West, back towards Colorado. Plan to be home end of June/early July. Looking forward to getting together when we do! We’ve missed you two!
