            LEXINGTON, KY (December 9, 2004) For the first time ever, RVs have been found migrating in large numbers to the Kentucky Horse Park for a long, winter’s nap.

            The park has opened its campground to owners who would like to store their RVs in a quiet, secure location from November through mid-March.  Thousands of campers already enjoy the Kentucky Horse Park campground every summer.  Now they can take advantage of the park’s RV storage during the winter as well.

            Enthusiastic group hugs are occurring in cul-de-sacs throughout Kentucky, as residents bid a gleeful bon voyage to their neighbors’ aesthetically-challenged RVs.   As the cumbersome creatures roll out of their traditional neighborhood parking spots on driveways and streets, and make their way into the park for the winter, their tearful owners will have the satisfaction of knowing the RVs will return, just like the swallows, at the first sign of spring. 

            For only $2 a day, hibernating RVs will be parked in a beautiful location at the Kentucky Horse Park, tucked-in and snuggly for the winter, with 24-hour security and Mounted Police keeping watch (and maybe even singing lullabies).

           For more information, contact Dean Oaken, Campground Director, at 859-259-4275 or email

            Winter Season Hours and Rates: From November 1-March 14, park admission is $9 for adults, $6 for children 7-12.  Children six and under are always admitted free of charge.  Open from 9 am until 5 pm Wednesday through Sunday.  Admission includes the American Saddlebred Museum.


          The Kentucky Horse Park is a working horse farm/theme park and equine competition facility dedicated to man’s relationship with the horse.  The park is an agency of the Kentucky Commerce Cabinet that hosted 913,000 visitors and 80 special events and horse shows in 2003.  The park is located at Exit 120, Interstate 75, just north of Lexington.  The place to get close to horses, the park is open daily March 15 to October 31, and Wednesday through Sunday, November 1 to March 14.
