Established in 1975, this conference has reached thousands with rich speakers, good food, and fellowship. Three days and two nights spent at Kentucky's state park provides plenty of opportunity for rest and rejuvenation for the spirit. The park's amenities include walking trails, a campground, restaurant, cabins, and lodge rooms. A hospitality cabin provides food and fellowship for conference attendees on Friday and Saturday evenings.

We do our best to find the best AA and Al-Anon speakers to bring their experience, strength, and hope to the northern KY area. We typically have attendees from Lexington, Louisville, Frankfort, and Cincinnati. Anyone looking for a good AA conference and Al-Anon fellowship will find it here.  

Registration is $30 and those who pre-register are given priority. Walk-ins are accepted at any time of the weekend and must pay the registration fee. Space is limited to 140 on a first-come, first-served basis. Children are not welcomed in the meetings. Only service dogs welcome in the meeting.
