Eddie Moore Named Park Manager at General Butler State Resort Park
FRANKFORT, Ky. – Eddie Moore has been named the new park manager at General Butler State Resort Park at Carrollton.
Moore is a veteran of the hospitality industry, having worked in Kentucky, Indiana, Mississippi and Tennessee and previously serving as a board member of the Kentucky Hotel/Lodging Association and president of the Mississippi Hotel/Lodging Association.
“Eddie brings a valuable amount of experience and skills that will benefit General Butler State Resort Park and the park system as a whole,” said Parks Commissioner J.T. Miller. “He’s managed hotels and resorts that have a lot in common with state resort parks.”
Moore, a Bowling Green native, will oversee the 791-acre park that features a 53-room lodge, 24 cottages, a campground, Two Rivers Restaurant and conference center. The park also has a lake, outdoor pool, 9-hole golf course and other recreational activities. The Butler-Turpin Historic Home, built in 1859, is also on park grounds.
Moore, who previously operated a hotel in Bardstown, said he’s excited about joining the state park system. “General Butler is a great park and I look forward to making it even better.”
The Kentucky State Park System is composed of 52 state parks plus an interstate park shared with Virginia. The Department of Parks, an agency of the Commerce Cabinet, operates 17 resort parks with lodges -- more than any other state. Each year, Kentucky parks draw 7 million visitors and contribute $317 million to the economy. For more information on Kentucky parks, visit our Web site at http://www.parks.ky.gov
