We’ve spoken highly of many of the parks, such as the underrated Grayson Lake State Park and Kentucky’s first state park, Pine Mountain State Resort Park, but there’s one often overlooked park that is filled with unique features. Big Bone Lick State Historic Site in Union is worthy of a visit and is filled with prehistoric surprises.
