Get your Summer Started!

June’s a great month for summer fun in the great outdoors! Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Camp Out in Your Backyard
Venture into your own backyard or a local camp ground during the 8th annual Great American Backyard Campout on Saturday, June 23. Register your campout at and receive campfire recipes, songs and games, nature activities, and nocturnal wildlife guides.

Pirate Week at Big Bone
Yar! It’s Pirate Week at Big Bone Lick State Park (3380 Beaver Road, Union)! Campers at the park during the week of June 27 – 30 are invited to sail the Big Bone Seas, play some pirate games and join a special party just for sea dogs. Dress in your finest sea-faring costumes and decorate your landing dock for a contest — a buried treasure might just be yours! Call 859-384-3522 or visit
