Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park

Search London Kentucky

This park commemorates what may be the most significant trail in the westward expansion of the pioneer era; between 1775-1800, more than 300,000 people traversed Boone's Trace and the Wilderness Trail, both of which run through the park. Portions of these trails can still be traveled on 8 1/2 miles of park hiking trails.

The gravesites of Freeman and of Levi Jackson are located within the 800-acre park, as are McHargue's Mill and a recreated pioneer settlement, the Mountain Life Museum. Other facilities include a year-round public campground, swimming pool with waterslides, miniature golf, tennis courts, picnic areas and playground, a 1,500-seat amphitheatre, and planned recreation.

The park is open daily, year-round, with a closure for one week during the Christmas holiday; other facilities operate seasonally, call for schedule.
