Management of Camp Nelson is a partnership between the National Park Service and Jessamine County Kentucky.


The National Park Service is developing a management plan to ensure that the new national monument preserves the site’s resources and provides for an outstanding visitor experience. The National Park Service’s planning for the new park will be done with full public involvement and in coordination with stakeholders. Open houses and public meetings will be held to discuss the management plan and invite the public to share ideas for the future of the monument.
