After Thanksgiving Day Hike!

After Thanksgiving Day Hike!

November 29

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Join Ranger Gina Lowry for a guided hike along the shoreline of Paris Landing. We will enjoy the fall colors, views of our beautiful Kentucky Lake, and watch for wildlife. The falling leaves have revealed the many hawks and eagles that overwinter here, as well as songbirds, deer, and small mammals. This will be approximately 3 miles on easy to moderate terrain. Please bring water, dress for the weather, and wear close-toed shoes. Everyone is welcome!  Including your fur babies! 
*Don't forget your camera and binoculars.   
Meet at:
Gravel drive beside cabin 10

Birders News

To all our birders out there, a Barrow's Goldeneye was spotted today near the park by Ruben Stoll and Victor Stoll! Photo taken by Andrew Lydeard, a Murray State student. Lydeard states that this is a very rare sighting. There is only a few differences from the Common Goldeneye. The Barrow's has a glossed purple head (instead of green), the nape is more puffy, and there is more black on the shoulder and back. If you happen to spot any rare birds while visiting our park we would love to hear about it and post any photos you get. We will make sure to give credit to the person(s) who take the photo or spot it. Thanks again to Ruben Stoll and Andrew Lydeard. Send photos to
