Make Your Reservations Now!

Make your reservations now — your shelterhouse reservations, that is.  Kenton County Parks and Recreation is now accepting reservations for the upcoming season. New for 2016: reservations will be made at the Kenton County Public Works Administration office, located at 420 Independence Station Rd. (in Lincoln Ridge Park), Independence, KY 41051.

These reservations are for the shelterhouses located within the parks maintained by Kenton County Fiscal Court. These parks include Lincoln Ridge, Middleton-Mills, Pioneer, and Richardson Road. Make a reservation online at or in person any weekday during the regular business hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Reservations are $65 or $80. Because of their size, location, and amenities, shelterhouse permit fees for Middleton-Mills 2, Pioneer 1, and Lincoln Ridge 3 are each $80. The remaining shelterhouses, which are Lincoln Ridge 1 and 2, Pioneer 2, Middleton-Mills 1, and Richardson Road 1, are each $65 to reserve. Or, with a $150 non-refundable fee, reserve a shelterhouse for a special event up to one year in advance. For more information about each specific shelterhouse, visit the Parks and Recreation department page at

Shelterhouses are excellent venues for company and family picnics, birthday parties, reunions, wedding receptions, and celebrations of any kind!

For specific shelterhouse current availability, call Kenton County Public Works at 859-392-1920.
