Daniel Boone and his men founded this frontier fort after crossing the Kentucky River in 1775.

The settlement known as Boonesborough is the second oldest European-American settlement. In the summer of 1775, Boonesborough had 26 log cabins and 4 blockhouses. In September 1778, the Native Americans attacked the fort, and later the siege was called "The Great Siege." Within Fort Boonesborough State Park, you will see a replica of the Fort from Daniel Boone's time. It is a living history featuring cabins, bunkhouse, and period furnishings. The Fort is open April - October with resident artisans that do demonstrations at the blacksmith shop and the potter's cabins to give visitors a taste of what life was like for the pioneers in this area. There are hands-on activities to participate in, such as axe throwing. The gift shop has some handmade pioneer items for sale.

It is open from 9 am to 5 pm annually from April to October. Admission is very affordable, and the campground offers over 150 sites with electrical hookups for RVs. Tent camping is also welcome. Amenities include showers, restrooms, and laundry facilities. Come and enjoy your stay at this wonderful state park in Richmond, Kentucky.
