Getting your maps and passes

Our office has moved to virtual work until further notice, and to protect the health and safety of our employees and customers, we are not selling maps or passes IN PERSON. However, we are available to help you! Please call 859-474-5093 for any inquiries and assistance.

The Forest Supervisor's office (in Winchester, KY) is an administrative office located outside of the forest. Call one of our district offices for specific information about trails and camping near the area you plan on visiting.

The Daniel Boone National Forest is part of the Forest Service under the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Forest Service manages national forests and grasslands to provide the nation with a sustained yield of natural resources, including wood, water and wildlife.
