Ever been glamping? You’re in for a treat! A new glamping experience, Camp Bespoke, is opening this fall in Williamstown, combining the breathtaking elements of nature with the latest in luxury. From authentic Sioux-style tipis to refurbished shipping containers fashioned into 21st century cabins and cottages, get ready to experience camping with all the comforts of home.
Or maybe you’re looking for something more off the beaten path … and up in the trees – how about an overnight stay in a treehouse? Nestled in the heart of Red River Gorge are The Canopy Crew treehouses – ranging from traditional to the unique. For a romantic getaway, try The Observatory, featuring a glass bedroom perfect for stargazing. Bring the whole family and stay in Dome Town, a series of three geodesic domes suspended in the trees.
Travel back to the frontier days with a stay in a covered wagon at Horse Cave KOA Campground. Located near Mammoth Cave National Park, the Conestoga wagons can sleep up to four with a king-sized bed and set of twin bunk beds. The interior is surprisingly homey, with electricity, microwave and mini refrigerator – plus, the wagons are complete with air conditioning and heat so you can enjoy an overnight at any time during the year. The wagons do not have bathrooms, but there is a bathhouse conveniently located just steps away. The wagon sites also have patio areas with chairs, picnic tables and access to grills and fire pits – perfect for s’mores! The campground offers cabins to rent as well as RV and tent camping sites.
State resort parks spread throughout the state feature lodges, cabins and campgrounds for those looking to take in the state’s natural beauty. Mountain views abound at Kentucky’s first state park, Pine Mountain State Resort Park. The Herndon J. Evans Lodge and cottages show off skilled craftsmanship with stone and wood featured throughout. One of our most popular state parks, Natural Bridge State Resort Park offers accommodations in cabin rentals and the mountainside Hemlock Lodge, with private balconies for guests. Fall is a great time to take a hike or ride the sky lift to the iconic Natural Bridge.
Cumberland Falls State Resort Park also offers great views of the infamous moonbow. Back at the resort, guests can enjoy inspiring views of the Cumberland River from the Riverview Restaurant while enjoying locally sourced ingredients in creative meals. Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park has a beautiful rustic wood and stone lodge perched serenely on a high cliff overlooking Pennyrile Lake as well as cottage rentals.
