More than 30 miles of the Green and Nolin Rivers trace through the park and offer a wealth of recreational opportunities. Angle for muskellunge, bluegill, catfish, bass, perch, crappie, and other game fish. Canoe the rivers looking for wildlife, springs, and river bluffs. Camp on islands or in the floodplain, or by the river at the Houchins Ferry Campground. Cross the Green River on two ferries—Green River Ferry and Houchins Ferry—two of the few operating rural ferries in the nation.

Editor Tips & Helpful Hints
  • A great way to explore the park is by canoe camping, where you can camp riverside and discover caverns, sinkholes, and trails away from the hordes. Check the Park Service website for recommended places to rent canoes and kayaks. A free backcountry usage permit is required for overnight camping.
  • Spring and summer are the best seasons, although the catch is plentiful year-round. A Kentucky fishing license isn't needed to fish inside the park.
