Breaks Interstate Park

627 Commission Circle

About Us:

Frontiersmen used to call a passage through the mountains a “break.” Such breaks were a rare thing indeed, offering the early settlers an opportunity to take their frontier lives to a new level. Layer upon layer of history welcomes today’s visitor, as does the still resplendent beauty of this unique 4600-acre park. Established in 1954 by an act of Congress initiated by the efforts of the two states it crosses, Virginia and Kentucky, it is now one of only two such interstate parks in the USA.

Visitors come to us year-round to enjoy the many recreational delights, whether they are bent on an active, sporting experience, or one more contemplative, such as our seven gorgeous overlooks. Wildlife abounds, as does the warm welcome, in cozy accommodations that feel just right in their setting.

Great park! We camped in our travel trailer. Plenty of full hookup sites. A loop was nice, but the views were a lot better in the B and D loops. Camp host, Joe, was great! A few in our group stayed in a cottage. It was a bit dated, but well worth the price. 2 others stayed in the yurt, which was great. Brand new and very spacious - no bathroom but really close to the remodeled bath house. Overall beautiful area with plenty to entertain the entire family. I'll definitely be coming back this summer.

A very pretty campground in the woods, however the maintenance has been seriously neglected. The pavement on the roads is very broken up and potholed and the bathrooms need to be torn down and replaced. The shower stalls had black mold on the walls, and badly needed painting. You couldn't even shut the water completely off. It would be a great park if they'd invest some money repairs and upgrades.

Very run down. Awful place toilet seat was broke and my wife fell. Do not waste your time or money. The staff was excellent! And the views awesome. But other than that it was terrible!
