Camper Appreciation Weekend set for April 27-29 at Kentucky state parks

Kentucky State Parks will hold its annual Camper Appreciation Weekend on April 27-29 at all 31 campgrounds. Campers will be able to get two nights for the price of one and special programs will be held at campgrounds to open the season.

Lake Malone State Park just across the Logan County border in Muhlenberg County is one of them.

The park system is spending more than $2.5 million on campground improvements across the state. This includes new fire rings, picnic tables, washers and dryers, dump stations and bathroom improvements. New campground stores will open at Green River Lake State Park near Campbellsville and Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park near Burkesville.

All state park campgrounds have water and electric services with dump stations or sewer hookups. State park campgrounds open for the season on Friday, March 30.

Campgrounds are offering a variety of activities to kick off the camping season. These include entertainment, arts and crafts, putt-putt golf, bonfires, movies, cookouts and nature programs.

Reservations are accepted (but not required) for the 2,600 improved sites by going to www.parks.ky.gov or calling 1-888-459-7275.
