Treehouses, Off the Grid!

5 sites 路 Lodging285 acres 路 Germantown, KY
Owned by my Dad who said I could build a tree house on it in 2014. It really was a dream come true. My Dad's original intent was to make it into a huge farm. Now, he is content with building a few treehouses!聽I have wanted a tree house since I was 10 years old. My siblings and I would spend hours make believing our own tree houses of twigs, rock and moss. It was where we felt at peace.聽When I turned 35 I knew something was missing in my life. I returned to doing fun adventures again and one led to another and we found tree climbing. EarthJOY tree adventures was founded in 2007 and since then we have guided 1000's of climbers into the trees and watch as they do tree tricks like yoga poses and coming down like spiderman.This land is magical and a world of adventure awaits you!

Farm and Forest

This land has previously been a tobacco farm, a hay farm, and is now home to a few beef cattle. We acquired the property in 2017, and have been making it our own and enjoying it ever since. We have blazed trails through the woods for hiking, created campsites with fire rings, farmed hay, and grown various vegetables for self-consumption. We love the proximity of the farm to town, yet the seclusion we feel when we are out there.

The best camping near Kincaid Lake State Park guide

Overview

About

Escape to Kincaid Lake State Park and you may never want to go back to a city again. A quiet park, the lake is surrounded by untouched woodlands giving you the feeling of seclusion, a feeling that is pretty hard to come by nowadays. Take your boat, or rental, out on the lake and set sail, letting the wind lift your hair and spirits. Hike the trails to fully enjoy nature thriving. Hit the golf course, or if you鈥檙e not quite ready to tee-off, have fun at the mini-golf course! Tennis, volleyball, swimming, any and all sports are welcome! Your one-day trip might just have to be extended.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Kincaid Lake State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural scenery is at its peak. Summer months bring warmth and a full bloom of park life, but also larger crowds and busier trails. Winters can be chilly, making some activities less accessible, so plan your trip accordingly to make the most of this scenic haven.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast and dress appropriately for seasonal changes to ensure a comfortable visit.
  • Be aware of park hours, typically from 8:30am to 5pm, and plan your activities within this timeframe.
  • Review the park's photo and drone policy before capturing your memories, respecting wildlife and fellow visitors.
  • Consider purchasing a gift card for park amenities or to share the experience with others.
  • Volunteer opportunities are available for those who wish to give back to the park community.
