Taylorsville, Kentucky

Posted on

Our next stop is Taylorsville Lake State Park. We have an easy drive up the freeway. For awhile we follow this:

Before Elizabethtown we take off  The Bluegrass Parkway that lands us in Bardstown. We were pleasantly pleased with this little town with its history, old building that are still in use and the quaint street filled with shops and restaurants. Dale’s son, Joe, tells us there are a couple of bourbon distillery’s around that are pretty good. We will come back to Elizabethtown next week.

We walked up to the Visitors Center and got a good recommendation for lunch but settled on the Mexican Restaurant that looked so inviting. They served us one of the most bland, uninteresting Mexican Food I have ever had. Thank goodness it was only $4.99. We walked the streets, read the history signs and plan to come back for a closer look.

We too highway 55 to Taylorsville and found the park without a hitch. Our space was ready and waiting for us. It was nice to get set back up and know we aren’t moving for 10 days. Boy, it is hot here!

Grass surrounds us and the trees are not overpowering like most of the campsites we have been in. We both had a very good feeling about this being a good place to kick back.

Life is good!!! It is awesome. So’s our God.

    One of Bob’s favorite Distillers is in Bardstown..He loves the Eliza Craig bourbon..they only place we have found that you can buy it is at the distillery! Think the name of the distillery is Heavenly Haven…well worth the tour and it is free…even the tasting! Wish I could get you some money to buy him a bottle of Eliza Craig…it is an 18 year old bourbon and he loves it. Oh well, will have to wait until we get back to E’town. If you have time, stop in at Skaggs RV and tell NeVelle or Robyn we said hi!!

    Sounds wonderful that you have a place to kick back and relax in for a few days. Hope you find lots of places to stay cool!
