Nearby Recreational Vehicle Campsites

Two major recreational vehicle campsites are advertised in tourist publications for the area near Cane Ridge.

1. Blue Licks Battlefield State Park is located on US Highway 68 about 20 miles from Cane Ridge and 20 miles southwest of Maysville. The 1783 Battle of Blue Licks, the crossing of the Licking River where many Kentuckians were slaughtered by Indians whom they were pursuing from Central Kentucky, took place here. The "lick" was a stopping place for migrating bison and prior to that, for prehistoric mastodons. A museum at the park reflects burial discoveries and Revolutionary War era artifacts. Guidebooks state that there are 51 sites, electric and water hookups, dump station, grocery, pool, playground, miniature golf, and nature trails.

Though no reservations are taken for the state park RV sites unless there is a large group, there are no restrictions on staying once a person has secured a site. You may stay for the duration of your Cane Ridge visit. For further information contact Kentucky State Parks, 1-800-255-7275 and/or Blue Licks Battlefield State Park, 1-859-289-5507.

2. Kentucky Horse Park is located at Interstate 75 Exit 120. The Horse Park is a busy place as it is one of the premier tourist attractions in the Lexington area. Here one can see virtually everything about the horse industry.

Though there are no reservations taken for the Horse Park RV sites, one can stay for the duration of your Cane Ridge visit once in. The guidebooks state that there are 260 sites, electric and water hookups, dump station, grocery, pool, playground, croquet, and tennis.
