Ark Encounter on KY

We would like to plan a stop on our travels to FL in October. Any recommendations on where to stay in the area? Can you spend a night in the facility's parking lot? Those that have been there, would you return?

I don't believe they will let you spend the night in your RV but you could call them and ask. They will let you park there during the day.

We stayed at Whispering Hills RV Park in Georgetown, KY (north edge of Lexington). It was about a 20 min drive to the ark. Very nice park just off I75. Tended to fill up at night and empty in the morning with snowbirds going North.

If you go, pick up the book on the building of the ark encounter. It details each aspect of the build and gives a cost breakdown of each phase. Lots of good in progress photos.

IIRC it is the largest post and beam structure in the world.

Hi JohnT,
Seeing The Ark is a must. They provide information as to how The Ark did what the Bible said. This is another vote for Whispering Hills. It is 25 miles from The Ark. All on interstate highway. Leave any weapons in the car. There are armed security with dogs patrolling the grounds.
