Yes this is an out of the way place, but because I am an avid hiker and my speciality is photographing wildlife this is the place to be. Upon my arrival in the dark, in the snow and wind mixed with rain I checked in and what a pleasant experience that was. I was warmly greeted and conveniently located right... More

I have been coming here since I was a child. The food is great and the lodge rooms are clean. Everyone is very friendly. As with most of the state resort parks they have not been updated but that is what makes it a great place to stay. There is not a bad view from any of the rooms of... More

I've lived in Ky all my life and have visited numerous Ky state parks. This was the worst. I will not return. Food was terrible. One of the best things about Ky state parks is the food. Usually a big tasty buffet for dinner and breakfast. At Buckhorn, the dinner " feast" buffet was small, and mediocre. On Sunday morning,... More

If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. This is the place to go. Rooms are a little dated, but they are clean. Really no restaurants close by, but the resort has a restaurant that serves dinner and a continentall breakfast. You can rent a pontoon for $200.00 a day and ride or... More

I was not able to get the meat off of the bone, the salad was small but ok, the vinegar and oil was old. The steak looked like someone had beat it flat with a mallet and was very... More

My wife and I had a late lunch there on July 16th. I had the catfish and Yumikko had a salad. Both of us were well satisfied with the meal and the service . The view was really nice, too. This 200 character minimum is a real pain in the, to put it politely, neck. I covered everything I had... More

I had lunch at Buckhorn Lake Restaurant and really enjoyed the food! They are having a round-up campaign to help them remain local. So, make sure you support the campaign when you eat there. I love the view and overall arrangement of the resort. Definitely a good place to visit.
