The Campground at Fort Boonesborough State Park
The new store for the campground was built in 2010 and carries all types of necessities and souvenirs for the campground.
We have 167 sites with electric and water hookups. The electric is suitable for 20A/30A/50A hookup. We have 3 dump stations. There is a large wooded area for primitive camping without hookups. This area contains approximately 75 sites. We also have 14 overflow sites with hookups and an unlimited number of dry camping sites.
There are 2 restrooms, 2 laundry rooms and 2 playgrounds located in the campground. The sites are varied from wooded to open areas. Each site contains a firering and a picnic table. There is a small grocery with a wide selection of items, including firewood and ice.
The park also includes a putt-putt, picnic area, boat ramp, hiking trails, fishing, swimming pool, a reconstructed Fort Boonesborough and the Kentucky River Museum.
From Memorial Day until Labor Day there are planned recreation activities in the campground and game room.
