Breaks - Breaks Interstate Park

627 Commission Circle

About Us:

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.

Great park! We camped in our travel trailer. Plenty of full hookup sites. A loop was nice, but the views were a lot better in the B and D loops. Camp host, Joe, was great! A few in our group stayed in a cottage. It was a bit dated, but well worth the price. 2 others stayed in the yurt, which was great. Brand new and very spacious - no bathroom but really close to the remodeled bath house. Overall beautiful area with plenty to entertain the entire family. I'll definitely be coming back this summer.

The Breaks Interstate Park is a GREAT park. This is a place that really must be seen. Imagine going to see the Grand Canyon and instead of seeing land that is devoid of vegetation or sparsely populated with vegetation you see canyons that are covered with trees. This park is known as the Grand Canyon of the East. Of course the park does not have the extent of the Grand Canyon. I stayed in a cabin and it was wonderful. It was clean, comfortable and had everything you would need for a long or short stay. There were deer everywhere. This would be a super wonderful park to take young children. The restaurant was ABSOLUTELY GREAT! The food was wonderful and the portions were out of control, necessitating a doggy bag, and the pricing was from the 1990s. The buffets on some nights and at breakfast were also wonderful. Fantastic views from the restaurant and there were deer outside eating acorns. There was a zipline, great for the adventurous. There are trails to fantastic overlooks, but these trails might be a problem for the young or elderly who are not in good shape. If you go, right outside the park is the tallest bridge in the state of Virginia. The bridge is on the border of Kentucky and Virginia. Ask for directions to see it. It will still be some time in the future before the bridge is open to traffic.

It is simply fantastic. An extremely helpful staff and a great place to relax. The views at the many overlooks are breathtaking and the scenery is just fabulous. I also highly recommend the zip line tours also because they give you a view of the river and gorge that is out of this world.
