pennyrile forest 300DAWSON SPRINGS, Ky. (6/5/14) — Heavy rains have forced Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park to temporarily close the beach on Pennyrile Lake for safety reasons until repairs can be made.

The rains Wednesday night caused erosion that washed out gullies on the beach.

It's not known how long the beach will be closed.

Rentals for pedal boats, row boats, canoes, and kayaks that are normally handled at the beach and boat dock area can be rented at the front desk at the park lodge.

The Kentucky State Park System is composed of 49 state parks plus an interstate park shared with Virginia. The Department of Parks, an agency of the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet, operates 17 resort parks with lodges more than any other state.
