General Butler State Resort Park is Green All Year Round

General Butler State Resort Park is located 45 minutes north on I-71 from Louisville. I've visited the park many times. I visited twice in 2009 and I plan on going again this year.  This park is great for picnics, family weekends or small get-togethers.  It is equipped with a playground, swings, a mini train, and a mini golf course. I've experienced all of these. Fun stuff. All of these are before you even get to the Kentucky River portion of the park. A photo is below.

That's a pretty river

The new playground was very nice. You have your big slide, rock wall and kiddie zip line. My favorite part was the flooring for the playground. It was mulched rubber tires. Yay, Kentucky state parks going green. I was surprised at how soft it is. It is a perfect flooring for a playground. I recommend it highly. A photo of the playground is below.

You gotta love the mulched rubber tires as the playground flooring

The park also has a big lodge, many cabins, a large campground, the Two Rivers Restaurant and a golf course. All of these are very nice and affordable. I recommend it for any family who find themselves in the area. Click on the link to learn more about General Butler State Resort Park.

If you're nowhere near Kentucky you can find nice state parks near your home. You can find the U.S. state parks nearest you here.

It is a very picnic-friendly park. It is a very popular park in northern Kentucky.
