What are some other great fall getaways in Kentucky?

There's nothing quite like a weekend at one of our Kentucky State Park Resorts to recharge our batteries! Did you know that Kentucky is home to more state park resorts than any other state in the country? It’s true! Kentucky has 45 state parks, and 17 of those are designated “resorts.” And these aren’t those run-of-the-mill resorts you’ll find in other states; these Kentucky resorts boast beautiful lodges outfitted with features like cozy wood beams, working stone fireplaces, and picture windows, for the ultimate hygee experience. The best part? These amazing accommodations are all quite affordable, too, so you can enjoy a luxurious resort getaway any time of the year in our beautiful Kentucky State Parks. With regard to autumn, we love taking off to Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, as the eponymous falls are absolutely sublime when surrounded by fall foliage. General Butler State Resort Park, Pine Mountain State Resort Park, and Natural Bridge State Resort Park also make great fall getaways in Kentucky, especially in October.

What kinds of activities are there around Kentucky Lake?

Once you've booked a cozy cabin at Kentucky Lake, it's time to explore. Here in Kentucky, when we want to relax, we head to the lake. And while there are many, many lakes in The Bluegrass State, the eponymous Kentucky Lake is the ultimate destination. Often referred to as “The South’s Great Lake,” it’s the largest man-made lake in the eastern U.S. It’s two miles wide and backs up the Tennessee River for 184 miles, from western Kentucky down through Tennessee. It’s so massive that there’s no land in sight when you look down the middle of it; it’s as if you’re looking out into the open seas … but you’ve never left Kentucky. Some of our favorite forms of recreation at Kentucky Lake include renting boats and/or jet skiing, hiking through Land Between the Lakes, birding and fishing (and even looking for bison!), horseback riding, stargazing, and, you know, renting a cabin and taking in the lovely scenery.
