Elk Night kicks off elk viewing season at Jenny Wiley

By Trinity Shepherd

Prestonsburg, KY - Jenny Wiley State Resort Park, 75 Theatre Court, Prestonsburg, KY 41653 will open the elk-viewing season with its Elk Night buffet on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 4pmET-9pmET.

The menu will include elk roast carved on the line, hunter's elk chili, elk meatloaf, fried chicken, catfish with hush puppies, lyonnaise potatoes, shoe peg corn and other vegetables and desserts.

Elk were re-introduced to Kentucky in 1997 as a restoration project by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. The department estimates there are more than 10,000 elk in Kentucky. Some of the best areas for elk habitat are on reclaimed surface mines in Eastern Kentucky.

The buffet is held on the first day of elk viewing tours at Jenny Wiley that run through the fall and winter.

Adults are $18.95 and children ages 6-12 are $8.95. Ages 5 and under are free. Drink not included.

Jenny Wiley State Resort Park is sponsoring elk tours at a cost of $30 per person or $15 per child, 12 and under. This fee includes transportation by van to the viewing sites and a continental breakfast. The elk-viewing tours will run through Dec. 2. The tours will resume in January.

The park also offers overnight tour packages that include lodging, dinner, and an elktour with continental breakfast for $160 per couple. Guests should register for the trips. Special group and business tours are available.
