Kentucky for 2 weeks

We are going to Kentucky for a couple weeks in late June. Looking to start at the Corbin KOA and then move around from there. I do have some questions for all of you that are familiar.

1. What are some MUST see areas. Do not want to do caves as we have already done that.
2. Best campgrounds?
3. Any suggestions on some back roads to take the Jeep down?
4. Best Fishing?
5. Best place for scenery?

Any comments or past Kentucky experiences would be greatly appreciated. I cant wait to go.

The Kentucky Horse Park has a nice campground, and the park itself is outstanding. Also, there are lots of back roads among the horse farms around Lexington. The Toyota plant tour in Georgetown is one of the best tours in the country. If you like American cars, the Corvette plant tour in Bowling Green is good, and the National Corvette Museum is nearby and well worth a visit.

Hi Jazzguy. We are workcamping at the Corbin KOA for the season. It's a beautiful CG. We are at site 24 so please stop and say hello. We've only been here a couple weeks so we're not familiar with all that is around here yet. Safe travels and look forward to meeting you.

- x2 on the Corvette Museum and assembly plant (need to take the plant tour during the week).
- Tour the distillaries
- Land Between the Lakes has an off road area for the Jeep
- Paducah if DW is into quilts
- big monument that looks like the Washington Monument - turns out it is Jefferson Davis' birthplace!
- Patti's 1880's Settlement - best pork chop you will ever have (plus bread baked in flowerpots)

Shakertown is interesting, great craftsmen, poor philosophy, (they didn't believe in procreation, so they became extinct) Also, Natural Bridge SP and the Red River Gorge area is beautiful. If you visit Cumberland Falls SP on a full moon, you can go view the 'moonbow' over the falls. Big Bone Lick SP is also a nice campground with lots of natural history.

The Breaks straddling the KY/VA border is a state park known as the Grand Canyon of the East. Camped there in the Fall and hiked the trails.

Hi! We live in Morgantown Ky about 20 miles north of Bowling Green (home of the corvette) and I would suggest traveling to land between te lakes and golden pond area and take in a tour of the bison elk range and also tour the home place. Thy also have a star observatory there excellent fishing and boating opportunities as well as beautiful scenery everywhere you look! I hope you enjoy your trip to ky! If you travel through bowling green check out the corvette plant and museum as well as ky down under (our version of Australia with kangaroos and all)!!! If I can be of assistance please message me!

Here's a link to a site listing all the things to do around LBL Land Between the Lakes. Including the elk bison prairie and the Homeplace. I love it there!
