Websites Redesigned For State Parks, Adventure Tourism
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky Department of Parks and the Office of Adventure Tourism have recently redesigned their websites to provide more information to visitors.
The Kentucky State Parks website – www.parks.ky.gov – provides information about state park lodging, camping, restaurants, wildlife viewing, events, golf courses, online reservations and many other opportunities.
The Office of Adventure Tourism website – www.getoutKY.com – provides visitors with information and lists events for adventure opportunities throughout the state. It includes blogs by authors who share their experiences with readers.
“These sites are great ways to learn about what our Kentucky State Parks and adventure destinations have to offer to travelers,” said Tourism, Arts and Heritage Secretary Marcheta Sparrow. “The new designs provide more information, photographs and details to help them decide what their next adventure will be in Kentucky.”
The changes for the state parks site includes 360-degree views of lodge rooms and meeting areas, a meeting planner’s guide, an improved calendar of events, interactive maps, golf tips, and a listing of things to do that allows guests to search for topics based on their interests.
The adventure tourism site now includes an expanded listing of places where people may go to experience their favorite outdoor activities. The site includes over 12,000 miles of trails for hiking, mountain biking, road cycling, horseback riding and ATV use.
In addition to land and water trails, a complete list of outfitters and adventure businesses is included to assist in visitor access to these activities. Updated information and pictures of these locations will help visitors when they are deciding where to go for their next adventure. The site will continue to have its popular adventure blog and calendars of events to further assist outdoor enthusiasts across Kentucky.
The Kentucky State Park System is composed of 51 state parks plus an interstate park shared with Virginia. The Department of Parks, an agency of the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, operates 17 resort parks with lodges -- more than any other state.
