A historical and recreational park, Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park is known as the site of the last battle of the Revolutionary War in Kentucky. In 1782, Kentuckians engaged Indians and British soldiers near the Licking River where they were outnumbered and suffered great losses. A monument at the park commemorates the fallen soldiers in the Battle of Blue Licks.
The park offers a lodge with 32 rooms, executive cottages, and meeting rooms. The dining room serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and a First Friday Seafood Buffet year-round. Annual special events are the Reenactment Celebration in August and the Halloween Campout in October. Other attractions the park offers are the campground, picnic areas, nature trails, planned recreational activities, a junior-olympic size pool, and miniature golf.
The park is 10 miles north of Carlisle and 48 miles northeast of Lexington on Highway 68.
