I live in Grayson, Kentucky. Grayson is a town of natural beauty. It rests in Carter County, between three of Kentucky’s most inspiring state parks. These beautiful parks encircle Carter County; Carter Caves State Park, Greenbo Lake, and Grayson Lake State Park. Grayson Lake State Park is made up of 1,512 acres. This area was a favorite camping area for Shawnee and Cherokee Native American. This is the place for boating, fishing, kayaking, golfing, hiking, picnicking, camping and much more.

Carter Caves State Park & Resort lies in Carter County’s most beautiful scenery. The park is open year round and campers come from all over the states to enjoy its beauty. You can choose to stay at the Lewis Caveland Lodge or one of their country cottages. They also have a campground that accommodates 89 campers including 30 tent sites with utilities. There are so many things that you can do at Carter Caves State Park & Resort. You can take part in a cave tour. There are two cave tours that the park offers, Cascade Cave and the X-Cave. There are over millions of years of nature created in these caves.

Carter Caves is also famous for their trails. If you decide not to take a tour of one of the caves, you can follow one of their marked trails and adventure in an open cave. The park also offers horseback riding, golfing, miniature golfing, fishing, boating and fine dining.

Greenbo Lake State Resort Park is located in Greenup Kentucky. Greenup Kentucky is located on the Carter County line and finishes the circle of parks that are located around Carter County. The Jesse Stuart Lodge is located at Greenbo. This lodge was named after the Poet Laureate and native of Greenup County. Greenbo offers camping, boating, fishing, trails and an outdoor amphitheatre.

Carter County also gets involved in a unique yard sale that happens every year, it is the Route 60 Yard Sale. This yard sale stretches over 40 miles on route 60 from Boyd County to Rowan County....
