I am in the period of life where my children are visiting colleges. We were planning visits and looking for a place that would provide access to colleges in Bowling Green, KY, Murray, KY and St. Louis, MO. I settled on the Land Between the Lakes. I had heard wonderful things about the area, but had never been there, although... More

You have to go into your vacation with the mindset that you are in a LODGE. This LODGE is over fifty years old. Lots of dark wood and a rustic setting. This is NOT a modern "looking" hotel, but the State has done a good job keeping up with more modern items. I always enjoy my stay at Lake Barkley.... More

Wonderful get away on Kentucky Lake. Nice swimming pool and restaurant. We loved the playground close to the resort (we have small children). We had to stay in a smaller set of hotel rooms away from the lodge due to limited availability. The room smelled "moldy" and needed some serious upgrades. The room also seemed overpriced (price was inflated due... More

We appreciate you taking the time to post your comments regarding your most recent stay. The annex building is called Little River Lodge that you stayed in and it is an older section. It is usually rented out to family reunions or fishing groups and since it hasn't been remodeled the price is half of a regular lodge room. We... More

I have always enjoyed the fitness center and wanted my daughter and her friend to check it out. However, it closed on a Saturday night at 8 p.m., then on Sunday went back and they closed at 2 in the afternoon! Very disappointed! And, the outdoor pool closed at 9 p.m. on a Saturday night! It's summer time and the... More

I made my first trip to Cadiz, KY this week to work with Trigg County Schools. I could have stayed in Hopkinsville at a "regular" hotel, but I spend over 100 nights a year in hotels and I am always looking for something that does not seem like a hotel room. That's where the Lake Barkley Lodge came in. I... More

We just got home from a four day weekend trip with the boat and pup. We had a blast! Everyone at the Lodge was super sweet as were the kind folks at the Marina and Captain Jim's Grill.

Lake Barkley Lodge is part of the Lake Barkley State Resort Park. As such, it's set up is a little more rustic than the average motel. This can be nice if you like seeing/hearing birds and squirrels etc as you walk to your room. However, you will also be seeing bugs and spiders. The House staff does sweep them daily... More

Thank you for your comments concerning your most recent stay. We are glad you enjoyed the outdoor appeal and rustic look. We do apologize the programmable buttons didn't work on your phone sometimes when the batteries get low they lose their memory and have to be reprogrammed; dialing "0" will always reach the front desk staff.

If you've stayed at other state or national park lodges, this one is worth the visit. It's rustic, views are fantastic from the room and lodge, and your kids will love the pool and marina. I brought my family as well as our extended family down for this vacation and everyone really enjoyed themselves. In comparison, it's not the Grand... More

We are glad you and your family had a nice and enjoyable experience at our State Park. It is nice to hear that you and your family were able to experience all we have to offer in amenities. With being out in the middle of the woods we do battle the lodge windows, decks, and balconies on a daily basis.... More

Generations of our families have been coming to Barkley Lodge for over 30 years. We stayed here for a couples retreat weekend that went pretty well. I get the impression that they really do well catering to event guests, but let the rest slip. Last summer we rented two cabins for over a week and brought the boats and jet... More

I enjoyed staying here. We stayed in one of the cabins while visiting family in the area. Yes they are outdated but you're in the country and in the middle of the woods. It was clean. That's all I cared about. Bathrooms were renovated and the bed was comfy with clean linens. I enjoyed the view of the woods from... More
