Has anybody here been to the 127 yard sale? I plan on going to the yard sale this summer, staying mostly on route 127 in Kentucky. Could anybody give some information on it such as where are some good stops and/or places to stay overnight along the route?
I have never been to the 127 sale and know very little about it, so any info would be helpful.

I have. I started in Frankfort with the idea that I would go through there and lawrenceburg. I only made it through part of Frankfort because there was so darn many! I only went one day though. Have fun!

I am originally from the Russell Springs area which is right off US 127. The places I would recommend eating/ lodging in the Southern portion of the road would by Danville or Russell Springs/ Jamestown. If you book early you might could even get a cabin at Lake Cumberland.

ALSO, you would definatly want to stop at some of the Amish run country stores in Southern Casey County. There is Nolt's, which is like a grocery store, and there are several craft stores nearby. Just take KY 910 from US 127 at Phil, KY and follow it maybe 5 miles. The craft stores are right off KY 910, Nolt's is located off South Fork Road. Just watch for their buggies and horse crap in the road

There was a good spot on the corner of McCormick Lane and 127 on the north side of Anderson County that had a ton of old antique stuff a few years ago. Owenton Road in north Frankfort always has many spots where they gather. Frankfort doesn't really have a big area in the city limits that has a group of sellers (or so I've never noticed). Only a few single spots here and there. Really, it's different every year because anyone can sell anything and you never know what to expect.

You can find occasional shoulder-side or road-side stands in every county along the route. Probably the three busiest Kentucky counties in terms of yard sale traffic are Franklin, Anderson (where I live), and Mercer.

Franklin Co., as somebody else pointed out, has many spots along US 127 north of Frankfort (Owenton Road). There are also quite a few vendors along US 127 south of Frankfort between KY 420 and KY 2820.

Anderson Co. is, I would assume, the busiest county of the entire yard sale corridor. US 127 & KY 151 has a place called Eagle Lake Flea Mall which dubs itself as "Kentucky's 127 Yard Sale Headquarters" or some such. Also, US 127 & McCormick Road is a popular spot. The two intersections are very close to each other.

I haven't been in a few years, but I used to loooove it. Isn't it a one day thing now?
Our first year, Greg drove a little Nissan Frontier. Man, we looked like Sanford and Son coming over the mountain near Chattanooga! It was a blast, though.

Missy, I would book it NOW!!!! Seriously.

Lake Cumberland State Resort Park is one of the state's most popular b/c of its quaintness, beauty, and true detachment from the beaten path. You have to drive on five miles of curvy road to get to the lodge and its check-in counter.

I've been there probably six times and stayed in a cabin. Truly a neat experience. Visit Kentucky State Parks - Home (I believe) to find out more.
