Sublimity Bridge

Bee Rock Recreation Area, on the London Ranger District, sprawls along the banks of the Rockcastle River, located along a section of waterway designated as a Kentucky Wild and Scenic River.

Sublimity Bridge at Bee RockAt the entrance to the campground on either the eastern or western edge of the river is the Old Sublimity Bridge. Constructed for KY 192 as a one-lane truss by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the late 1930s, it was replaced in the 1960s by a modern, pre-stressed concrete span upstream. The stone used in the abutments was quarried from the adjacent sandstone cliff. The bridge has since been restored into a walking bridge that connects the two sides of the campground. It is not open to motorized use.
