Kenlake State Resort Park is located minutes away from the Land Between the Lakes, a 170,000-acre nature lover’s paradise and environmental education area. Kenlake offers lodging, cottages, a campground and restaurant.
Kenlake State Resort Park’s 48-room hotel, the Kenlake Hotel, is the only hotel in a Kentucky State Park that has interior room doors. The property also includes 34 cottages, some of which belonged originally to the defunct Cherokee State Park, which was nearby. A 90-site camping-ground is also available for overnight stays.
Kenlake State Resort Park contains what was originally the aforementioned Cherokee State Park, the Southern United States (including Kentucky’s) first blacks only state park.
