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.

Amazing park. A must see on the east side. This park can compete with some of the best of the West. BIP offers a high adventure vacation to a completely relaxing one. Hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, rafting, elk tours, pool... the list goes on. The camp ground has great spots for groups to camp together and great secluded site also. Primitive to full hookups. The Rhododendron restaurant has good food friendly service and a great view.

Great Campground. Arrive in the daylight. Come in through Grundy. The Zip line and horse back riding are only open Wednesday through Saturday. Restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday. The nearest 'food' off the park is a 15 minute drive, 3 miles away. Nothing is quick to get to, a good thing when trying to get away. Make sure your brakes are in good shape.

We've stayed there for several years now, every 4th of July, and the rooms are okay. The price is a little high, considering you don't get things like continental breakfast or a workout place or a free pool. The restaurant is decent, but the breakfast buffet is a little high-priced. We'll keep staying there because it's convenient to where we meet Gail's family, and, if you're into hiking or at least walking, the views can be great.

Very nice beautiful place to go. Took my grandsons to the water park and it is very nice. I enjoyed it as much as they did.
