Prestonsburg - Jenny Wiley State Resort Park

75 Theatre Court

Jenny Wiley State Resort Park opened in 1962. The lodge is named for Andrew Jackson May, a local native and Congressman for many years. The park has 49 lodge rooms, 18 one and two-bedroom cottages, a dining area that seats 244 people, a convention center, hiking trails, picturesque Dewey Lake, disc golf, and a 121 site campground.  From June through August the Jenny Wiley Theatre Company performs Broadway Musicals. Also located in the park is Josie Harkins School. This one-room country schoolhouse operated from 1924 to 1987, making it the last one-room country schoolhouse in Kentucky. The building was moved from Daniels Creek in Floyd County to the park as a part of the Commonwealth of Kentucky's bicentennial celebration.

So peaceful and quiet. Really enjoyed spending the weekend with my husband for our 23rd wedding anniversary. We stayed in a cottage,they're like home away from home just bring your clothes and food if you plan on cooking or restaurants are fairly close if you'd rather someone else do the cooking. The bed spread and curtains could be updated but overall great place.

We love going to Jenny Wiley State Resort Park. My family goes fishing at the lake every year. We have also enjoyed their campgrounds for family camping trips. They have beautiful hiking trails. We also love taking the kids to the playground at the spillway.

Fantastic all around. Came in for the elk hunt. Rooms were a really clean throwback to the hotels I stayed at growing up. Appeared to be remodeled recently. Cleaning staff was on the ball and the rest of the staff was super courteous. The restaurant downstairs was great; the best hot brown I have ever had. Had a nice balcony overlooking the lake and the mountain. Heard a bunch of birds and a few elk bugles in the morning.i checked out the pool and it looked really nice. You can't beat it for the money. Really looking forward to trying out the cabins next time. I can't recommend it enough.

Just a heads up that the 'Lodge' is more of a motel than a lodge. The pictures on the website of the rooms and accommodations are not representative of the truth. The rooms smell very musty as well. We asked for a 7:30 am wake up call that we received at 8:30 am. The restaurant inside the lodge is over priced and the food is not good. The grounds I am sure are lovely, we were only there for lodging, and didn't have time to take in the sights.

The park is an amazing place to take your children or to even go for a day of refreshing down time. 10 out of 10 recommend!
