New Pet Policy at Kentucky State Parks
FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The Kentucky Department of Parks has initiated a new “pet-friendly” policy at its 17 state resort parks.
The new policy allows pet owners to bring pets into their lodge rooms that have been designated for pets. Pet owners will pay a $25 fee for each reservation. A limited number of rooms will be available for pets at each park.
Upon check in, guests who chose a pet-friendly room will receive a copy of the park pet policy and will be required to sign a waiver form verifying that they will comply with the policy. Guests who bring a pet into a non-pet friendly accommodation will be subject to an additional room charge of $25 per stay and a $100 extra cleaning fee.
Pets are not allowed in state park cottages. Pets may be brought into state park campgrounds as long as they are on a leash.
The Kentucky State Parks have 17 resort parks – all featuring a lodge and restaurant. Most resorts also have cottages, campgrounds and other features such as hiking trails, tennis courts, marinas and seasonal recreational programming.
