Looking for a nice place to get out and do something interesting?

How about a nice, small star party to attend? Check out the Pennyrile Stargaze at Pennyrile State Park near Dawson Springs, KY. This is an informal star party with no attendance fee. It is held in the state park about 2 miles from the State Park campground.  Nice camping available for tents or motor homes on site at the star observing location that is located near the Park Maintenance Building. You can use the state campground showers for a small fee or stay at the campground lodge if you prefer not to camp. The State Park rents lodge rooms, cabins and has a nice restaurant. There is also a golf course in the park. Being held October 7th thru the 16th.There is a Facebook page under Pennyrile Stargaze that has some limited information and pictures of past star parties.
