Fort Boonesborough State Park Campground Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Pitch your tent where Daniel Boone did back in 1775. Specifically, he spied out Sycamore Flats, the primitive camping area at what is now the state park, for his fort out of which a town would grow. Before he could get started, though, one of his comrades persuaded Boone to locate the fort on higher ground adjacent to Sycamore Flats.

Fort Boonesborough was eventually abandoned, as settlers went on to greener pastures. Finally, a fellow bought the property in the early 1900s. Then his son donated it to the state of Kentucky, which developed the park where you can now camp at the location where Daniel and company laid their heads."
