We bike ride early in the day and spend the afternoon at the pool.
Then back to our place for frozen margaritas.

I would not go in this weather without AC!!!
97 yesterday afternoon on our back porch in the shade.
Sorry.... Little off topic, but Dan, if you could share your experience at the Horse Park. We are in northern ky between Louisville and Cinci. Always looking for ky parks to visit but we spend most of our camping time in indiana.

Andy, I'll be the first to admit I am not a horse guy but we really enjoy this
park. It's right off I75 just north Lexington. Maybe the 1st exit north
of I64-I75 split.

Some sites are shaded. They have photos of each site so you can sort
of tell. The pool is nice and it has some shade also for the hottest days.
There is a paved bike trail that leaves the park near the entrance and
meanders thru the UK agriculture farms and winds up at the YMCA in
Lexington. I forget how many miles but it's probably 6 or 7 each way.
The path was built for the World Equestrian Games that were held in KY
for the 1st time ever a few years back.
You can purchase reasonable tickets to tour the horsey side of the park
and even tho I am not a horse lover I really enjoy visiting over there so
I recommend it to you also.

If you are walkers you can get miles just walking around the roads in the
park. Some are shaded and some pass some old homes and lead to
locked gates so traffic is very light.

We have 4 days reserved there at C176 which is a shaded site according
to the photo. We stayed in that site a few years back and it was shady.
There is almost always something going on in the arena. Some days it's
free, just walk in and sit and watch the practice or competition.
Always something to see.

Hope you enjoy the park!

Thanks for the reply. I've been to the park before but it's been years. I used to live in both Richmond as well as Winchester.

I appreciate the insight into the camping and the newer aspects of the park.

It's in our list.
