RFP For Green River Lake State Park Issued
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky Department of Parks has reissued a request for proposal for a lodge, conference center and restaurant at Green River Lake State Park near Campbellsville.
The request seeks a developer to build and operate a resort at the park along the 8,200-acre lake. The park currently has a campground with 157 sites, mini-golf, 28 miles of multi-purpose trails and a privately-operated marina.
The RFP calls for a lodge with at least 50 rooms, a swimming pool, restaurant, gift shop and other amenities offered at most state resort parks. Unlike the first RFP issued earlier this year, this RFP does not call for a golf course at Green River Lake. The development of a golf course will depend upon funding from the legislature.
The deadline for submitting proposals is Nov. 1. More information about the project is available at http://eprocurement.ky.gov/
The Kentucky State Park System is composed of 53 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
