Description

Hike in the footsteps of pioneers on two historic trails, the Wilderness Road and Boone's Trace. These thoroughfares carried more than 200,000 settlers from the eastern colonies into the western frontier between 1774 and 1796. See the Mountain Life Museum and McHargue's Mill, tributes to 19th century pioneer ingenuity. Or enjoy swimming and relaxing at your campsite. There are plenty of ways to have fun at Levi Jackson State Park.

Geography:

Located south of London, Levi Jackson State Park encompasses over 800 acres and includes the Defeated Camp Pioneer Burial Ground, McHargue's Mill and the Mountain Life Museum, whose buildings are filled with pioneer relics, including tools, products of agriculture, and household implements. A working reproduction mill dates to the same era as the original McHargue family mill and has authentic interior works, including millstones. It is surrounded by the largest display of millstones in the country.

Recreation:

Cool off on a hot summer day in the community swimming pool. Test your putting skills on the 18-hole miniature golf course April-October. Hike on 8.5 miles of trails. Horseshoe pits, volleyball, and basketball courts are available, and in the camping area, daily summer activities are available for children and adults, under the guidance of a trained recreation staff.

Facilities:

While discovering Kentucky's pioneer heritage at Levi Jackson State Park, visitors can relax year-round in a 146-site campground, nestled in open woodland. Utility hookups, a grocery store, a dump station, and three central service buildings containing an activities room, showers, restrooms, and laundry facilities assure camping convenience. Pets are allowed if restrained. Levi Jackson is a great place for a fun-filled group camping trip. The group camping area has an activities building and may be reserved in advance. The Russell Dyche Amphitheater seats 1,500 people and is host to many community events.
