Lake Barkley State Resort Park is offering two fall overnight backpacking trips on November 3 and 4 and November 17 and 18, 2007. These one-night guided adventures are designed for people who don’t have the necessary gear or experience for backcountry excursions.

As a part of Kentucky Department of Parks’ Backcountry Adventure Series, Lake Barkley will provide participants with the majority of their needed backpacking gear and also instruction on how to use the gear, low impact camping, equipment selection and use and trip planning.

“The Kentucky Department of Parks’ Backcountry Adventure Series is set up exactly for people to get into backcountry hiking and to use hiking gear that they would otherwise blindly invest in even if they had never done it before,” said Park Naturalist and Recreation Director Jenny Howard, who will be leading the journeys.
