Our next stop was Red Rock Canyon. This campground was a pleasant surprise, with a spacious pull through right by a stream. We stayed for two nights, and enjoyed the day off from driving walking and reading.

I was anxious to get to Kentucky, since we had always wanted to see more of the state. Our first campground in KY was Canal Campground, another wonderful ACE park. Canal Campground is on a peninsula between Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake.
Since we were staying for two nights, we took a drive to see a nearby wildlife preserve on our day off. There were some bison and elk there.
On Friday May 8th we left for Moutardier Park, our final ACE park. This was Mother's Day weekend, so the park was fairly full. Our campsite was right on Lake Nolan, and made for a nice relaxing two day stay.
We took a drive out to Nolan River Dam, another impressive Army Corp of Engineer construction.
Our final campground stop was Carters Caves State Park. We were not impressed at all with this park. It was a bit run down and could really use some better care. We were told that the state was short on funding. There wasn't much to do here, so we just took it easy and prepared for the last leg home. We decided to stay at a Ramada Inn in Morgantown WV for a night, and then head home on May 13th.
We've been busy getting everything unpacked and trying to get things in order. It was such a great trip, but as usual after being in the trailer for four and a half months we're glad to be home.
