Something I want to make clear....
Remember that campground I told you about that the bathhouse was so dirty and the sites were so uneven that we didn't stay? THAT park was in Tennessee. Part of BSF resides in both Kentucky AND Tennessee. The Bandy Creek Campground that we stayed in IS in Tennessee but this is a NATIONAL park.
All of the Kentucky STATE parks that we have stayed in, this year and in years past, have not disappointed us as far as cleanliness and the size of the campsite. Most of the sites are HUGE and most ARE level. The bathhouses are CLEAN and modern. And unlike Michigan State Parks, there is NO ENTRANCE FEE. You pay to camp; no extra fees for driving in. In Michigan out of staters pay $8.00 extra ON TOP of the camp fee per vehicle. So if a motor home is towing a car, they are paying $16.00 on top of the camp site fee. AND in Kentucky State Parks, AARP members AND military get a 10% discount. This is also for any of the State Park entrance fees to any of the additional attractions, like Fort Boonesborough.
One of these days I am going to take the time and look into how the State of Kentucky manages to have such wonderful state parks and not charge outrageous fees (compared to Michigan).
There will be the continuing saga of our vacation coming up soon!
AND BY THE WAY, NO MATTER WHO YOU VOTED FOR, CONGRATS ON MAKING HISTORY!
