Kingdom Come State Park Reopened After Forest Fire

CUMBERLAND, Ky. – Kingdom Come State Park will reopened Tuesday, April 15, following a forest fire that closed the park on April 13, park officials announced.

No buildings were damaged, but some park trails will be closed while they are inspected and cleared. Roads through the park will be open today.

About 200 acres of the park in Harlan and Letcher counties was covered by the fire, which started outside the park.
