The Kentucky Colonel Campout at Lake Cumberland State Resort Park, Jamestown, KY, is always Thanksgiving week beginning on Sunday morning and lasting till Saturday after Thanksgiving.  This year will be November 20 to 26.  Most arrive Friday or Saturday before. Camping does not have to be reserved, just show up.  All are welcome. You do not have to be a Kentucky Colonel or even belong to FCRV.  If you are not camping, come anyway.  Cottages are available as well as the Lodge.  Reservations for the Cottages or Lodge must be made at http://parks.ky.gov/parks/resortparks/lake-cumberland/ or call 270-343-3111 for more details.
We have a fire that burns all week, games, daily activities in the activity center, Thanksgiving devotional service, Thanksgiving dinner, and other activities (like eating out and hospitality’s).
