Pilot Destination Update - Rough River State Park, Falls of Rough, KY

"This is a favorite destination of pilots at my airport for breakfast. It's less a less than 30 minute flight in a 150. They just resurfaced and repainted the runway, which it definitely needed. The breakfast buffet isn't offered during the winter months, but the menu prices are reasonable and the food is good. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere. No fuel available so plan your flight accordingly." - Submitted by Brian Crane.
