Bee Rock was once a haven for wild honey bees. When the bees became a threat, the locals used dynamite to destroy the bees’ home. Legend has it that there was so much sweet honey that flowed down stream it made it all the way to the river.
The park is located on Highway 192 near Mt. Victory on both sides of the Rockcastle River. It borders Pulaski and Laurel counties, and is part of the Daniel Boone National Forest.
Visitors can hike, camp and fish from the bank of the river. You can also go canoeing in the Rockcastle River.
Bee Rock Campground is near Mt. Victory, Kentucky.
This place is totally relaxing. I’ve been going here for years. It’s nice just sitting near the water viewing the beauty that surrounds it. This is true nature at its best.
