The cold front is now working into eastern Kentucky with winds gusting to near 40mph at times. Temps have dropped into the 30s behind the front and we've had reports of sleet and snow mixing with the rain in Lexington.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Camping enthusiasts can take advantage of a discount being offered by Kentucky State Parks for most of the month of April.
The parks are offering a 20 percent discount on camping reservations made for April 1 through 25.
And during Camper Appreciation Weekend on April 26 and 27, two nights' camping is offered for the price of one. Special events will also be held for campers during that weekend at some parks.
There are 31 state park campgrounds in Kentucky, all with sites with water and electric hookups. Campsites for horse camping are available at Carter Caves, Pennyrile Forest, Dale Hollow, Taylorsville Lake and Greenbo Lake. And Wi-Fi is offered for a fee at about a dozen campgrounds.
