Early summer each year both The Northern Kentucky Fly Fishers and the Buckeye United Fly Fishers take a fishing camp out trip to the Elkhorn Creek in Frankfort, Kentucky and stay at the Elkhorn Creek Campground located right on the river.
Elkhorn Creek is one of the premier smallmouth streams in Kentucky. This feisty fish on light tackle or fly rod will give you a trill of your life.
During the heat of the day you can take a break from fishing and enjoy the amenities of the campground like a cool dip in the pool, a game of putt-putt, horseshoes, volleyball, shuffleboard, or basketball. Children can enjoy the large playground including swings, slides and other equipment located near the general store. Hand-dipped ice cream is always a treat after a day of fun in the sun.
Tourist attractions are numerous with only a short drive from the park. You can drive through horse farm country in Lexington, Versailles and Midway. Antiques can be located in Georgetown, Midway and Frankfort. A tour of the Toyota Motor Manufacturing Plant is a short drive from the park. Visiting the capital city is a great day trip. You can see how laws are made for Kentucky or how bourbon is produced. Genealogy can be studied at the State Library of Archives or at the Kentucky History Center.
