Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park

Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park is the site of a mineral spring which has attracted men and animals from prehistoric times to the present. The battle of Blue Licks took place during the Revolutionary War. It was fought in Kentucky on August 19, 1792, between a group of British-Canadian Indians, and a small group of Kentucky pioneers. 

The Pioneer Museum is the park’s major attraction. It houses a variety of artifacts, from a mastodon tooth found during an excavation of the site to mastodon tusk. Exhibits focus on the area’s natural and cultural history, including prehistoric animals and fossils, area native Americans and 18th-century pioneers, as well as a diorama of the battle. 

The lodge offers 32 nice, clean rooms with full amenities, including two suites. Open year-round. Hidden Waters Restaurant is well known in central Kentucky for its excellent southern cuisine. Featured items are southern-fried catfish. Our campground is open April 1 – October 31 and has 51 sites, each with standard electric and water hookups for tent or RV campers.
