7 Reviews of Blue Licks State Park
Best small campground

My absolute favorite campground. It’s small, clean, level pads and just plain fun. They typically have nice activities for the entire family along with the pool and museum.

Neat History

We enjoyed the history at this state park. I enjoyed learning about the salt making process and also Daniel Boone. They had a lovely museum for a small fee. They even have a fort on the property that we found on one of our hikes. The camp sites are ample size and do have electricity.  The restrooms were good.  My camp partner did hear some road noise so be sure to bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.

Lots of history

There is tons of history and a quick drive to Paris will get you more, that was why we chose to camp here. Disappointed in the camping part- pads is very small for RV, the connections are far away, the pool & shop closed at 6pm (it’s summer and they close at 6!) no room for vehicles and the trees were so close we couldn’t op our awning up all the way. Neighbors really close too!

Never saw the host in the 3 days we stayed but the shower house was clean and well kept.

Quiet and clean camp site !

Very friendly and helpful staff .. nice showers was a plus !


Blue Licks State Park isn't big but you will get a good workout!

This Park off Ky68 outside Lexington, Ky was a nice, informative stop over enroute back home.

You get to enjoy the Kentucky countryside as you drive to Blue Licks, once at the park the view is pretty sweet. I actually got a sense of the time period just viewing the landscape at the "top" of the park.

The campground is more toward the top of the hill and each area is located off the park road as you work your way down the hill. The Boatramp, of course, is at the very bottom with a small parking area and trailhead that leads back up to the picnic area and campground.

Smaller campground but well maintained and large sites along the outer edge, closet sites in the middle. The tent area is walk in and shaded.

maybe try a cabin next visit...

Short visit here, but it was enjoyable :) This park as a few shorter hiking trails, which were nice, as well as historic sites, mini golf, and a pool. The park has a lodge and cabins as well as a campground. In the campground area is basketball and volleyball. Campground is not very large, but ‘secluded’ is not a word I would use when describing it. The tent camping sites, ‘primitive’ were not :( It was an okay experience, but there was road noise and no seclusion (we were in a field essentially with the other tent campers).

First to Review
Getaway right in our backyard!

Blue licks features a great lodge, restaurant and cabins. Our family used to visit the restaurant a few times a month for its down home cooking on the buffet. Camp grounds are clean and well spaced out, and there's great fishing spots.

We still fish there on a regular basis.
