About Us


Ohana Celebration Park is a new park with a vast history. The park was founded by O.G. and Elizabeth Kuykendall over 40 years ago as Lester Flatt Memorial Park. This name remains as the identifier for the RV park to honor all the hard work of the Kuykendall family put in to creating the park. The park was named after Lester Flatt, who was an American bluegrass guitarist and mandolinist, best known for his collaboration with banjo picker Earl Scruggs in The Foggy Mountain Boys. The park has been known for its outdoor music events at the open-air Lester Flatt stage featuring Gospel and Bluegrass music. It has hosted many well-known performers such as Ricky Skaggs, The Judd's, George Jones, Little Jimmy Dickens and many other very talented musicians local and abroad. Elizabeth always treated their performer guests like family and invited them into her home and even fed a few of them.
In it's day Lester Flatt Memorial park had over 300 campsites with many supporting full hookups. The park also features a bathhouse, large pavilion for various events and an open-air chapel that overlooks the 22-acre lake. The Kuykendall family poured their hearts into the park for many years.

Fast forward to 2021 and Lester Flatt Memorial Park is still there, but O.G. has passed on and Elizabeth is now 97 years young. The park has been transferred to new owners who want to bring the music back. The owners also have plans to expand the park beyond it's 300+ site RV park, stage and pavilion. Some of the plans include a children's play area, event center, expansion of the open-air chapel, reviving the stage and bringing live music back to the valley, reviving some of the sites that have not been used in a while and adding kayak/canoe/paddle boat rentals for playing on the lake.

The new owners visited the park many times over the years and fell in love with the park and the family atmosphere. It's a true blessing to be able to pick up this dream and add to it. A new Ohana has been created in this process. Keeping the history of Lester Flatt Memorial Park and building on that legacy to bring to you a place that is still peaceful, beautiful and offers you things to do or not do, depending on your needs. No matter what, you will come as a guest and leave as family. Welcome to Ohana!
