Hiking a little of Green River

The Green River is the longest river, at 370 miles, to flow completely within the Commonwealth of Kentucky's borders - Corps of Engineer Park

Green River Lake Corps of Engineers Park

Beloved and I haven't been impressed with the 4 Kentucky State parks that we have camped at so far. We camped for a few days at Green River State Park this past week. We didn't enjoy the state park campground. So, when we found out that it had a rating of 2 out of 5 stars we were not surprised.  However, during our stay there, we took a look at one of the Corps of Engineers Parks in the area. It ended up being a beautiful quiet area that was more of what we have in mind when we camp. 

I particurally enjoyed the Marina. It was very pretty with all of its houseboats with their American flags.

At lunch time, while exploring the area, we found a quiet, lush green spot for our picnic. Afterwards, the Little Ones spent time playing on a playground.


We also went exploring hand in hand!


We hiked a short trail that lead out to a beautiful rocky point on the lake. 
This point was a very pretty spot with a nice cool breeze with plenty of rocks to skip along the lake.
It is always good to know that that the Corps of Engineer Parks (the ones that allow camping) might be a good alternative if we aren't pleased with the State Parks.
