Raccoon Creek State Park

Raccoon Creek State Park Professional Review and Guide

"This large campground is made up of six loops. Five have their own shower houses, and two are open to pets. The most distinctive thing at this park is its wildflower preserve. Its 314 acres house more than 700 species of plants, making it acre for acre one of the most diverse places in the commonwealth. The most flowers are in bloom late April and August, but there’s always something to see.

The park is also known for its active environmental education programming. The courses in primitive outdoors skills and winter camping are especially popular. The park’s 101-acre lake offers opportunities to fish, boat, and swim. Its trails—including one that leads to Frankfort Mineral Springs, site of a popular resort in the 1830s—provide some wonderful hiking."
