Breaks Interstate Park
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.
This is a wonderful place for a family vacation. The cabins are very comfortable, and the hiking is wonderful. We really loved the trails especially the geological trail. Both my 6 yr old and 16 yr old were able to hike the the ridge trail, geological trail, lake trail, and others. The only disappointing thing was the fishing.
Great place if you enjoy nature. Plenty to do for adults and children. Only problem was the firewood they sold was green. Took 2 bottles of lighter fluid to get it burning.
It's a beautiful place. Exquisite views, wonderful staff and great housekeepers.
Great place to visit and see wildlife. Great food, and a friendly staff. Awesome views too, just need to upgrade the picnic tables and outdoor grills. Also has a kiddie pool, paddle boat rides, horse stables, trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding.
A GREAT place to eat and its breath taking there . my home place !!
