Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
For many residents and visitors, Kentucky's state park system is an embarrassment of riches. With 52 state parks located in every part of the state, it's difficult to match their attributes with your vacationing needs and preferences. Susan Reigler's The Complete Guide to Kentucky State Parks puts this nationally praised recreational system at your fingertips, whether you're interested in hiking, boating, golfing, spelunking, camping, or immersing yourself in regional history. This well-organized, extensively illustrated 256-page paperback provides descriptions of each park's activities and attractions. Not even the Kentucky state park web site puts this much useful information together in such accessible form.
