We love these parks....

Near Leitchfield, KY

On Wednesday August 24 we pulled out of Artillery Ridge CG in Gettysburg, PA and headed south on Rt 15.  We picked up I 68 west through some hilly parts of MD

and then entered

where we picked up I79.

After traveling 289 miles we found our destination at a Corps of Engineer (COE) park on Burnside Lake

View from our site

This is a great COE park.  A 50 amp full hook up site for $11. a night with the America the Beautiful Federal Senior Pass.   However, no cell or Internet service.  Should we return to this campground we would not park on the same site.  There was a pronounced sloop.  We had to extend the front landing jacks full out and had to place a step to get in.  It was still a huge step up.  Gotta love having automatic levelers and stabilizing bars.

As you enter the park you pass:

This battle took place on the Cunningham Farmstead

Several of the original structures are still there along with two log homes that were moved to this location.

Notice the chimney of the above cabin.  It is called Cat and Clay.  It is made of wooden slats held together with mud.

Yesterday we left WV headed to KY.   Continuing on I79 to Charleston, WV we picked up I64 into

Lexington, KY.   We  passed several horse farms but no horse in sight here

We did see this interesting building.... near Castle Hill Winery.  Don't know if this is part of the winery or the winery is named such because of the castle.

In Lexington we picked up Kentucky Blue Grass Parkway to Litchfield, KY then route 259 to our destination.   A long day with 389 miles behind us.

Another fabulous COE park.  This one is $10.50 a night with water and 50 amp electric.  No sewer.  But I am getting a great signals on our phones and my Verizon MIFI.    Our front yard view:

This is Nolin Lake.   It is a 5,795 lake 2 miles north of Mammoth Cave National Park.  Many years ago I toured the cave, when my girls were quite young.  If I remember right, there are several tours from which to choose.  We will check it out tomorrow.

Until next time.....
