The governor is originally from the Dawson Springs area and this is the fourth state park with this type of campground designed for horseback riding activities.
The park includes a full water and electricity system, hitching ports and a brand new bath house. The campsite is accompanied by 40 miles of trails and Beshear, an avid horse lover, says it’s amazing to see adventure tourism grow throughout the state.
“Today we’re celebrating these horse camps, these equine horse camps so that people can come and enjoy, in the horse capital of the world, trail riding through an area that is so unique and so beautiful,” Beshear says.
Along with the campsites, the Pennyrile State Park is also hoping to add a mountain bike skills area.
