The biggest thing I noticed that could have been fixed is the large amount if cobwebs and spider webs. In general, the lodge is nice with great activities and views. Beds were comfortable and room had private balcony. We will be returning. Be sure not to pass it up. There is also an indoor pool and fitness center down the... More

We just spent a couple of days at the Lodge and it was wonderful. We had a great relaxing vacation and the lodge was the perfect place to stay to relax. We stayed in an upper level room near the pool. The high ceiling room was great. Everything was clean and neat. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching... More

We do love staying in State lodges, and Kentucky sure does a good job. It's such a pretty setting here, and our room turned out very nice. Plus, they are VERY pet friendly here. We booked a 2nd level room as I like the high, wood ceilings...very "lodgey". But, when we got here, there was nothing available for our entire... More

This State park is a little "Dated", but WOW they have something for everyone! The rooms were clean and efficient, and the view from the private porch was out of this world. Quiet and peaceful. There is skeet shooting, boat rentals, fishing rod loaners, a sandy beach for every age, clean pool, tennis courts, indoor swimming pool, a game room... More

Barkley lodge is a nice rustic lodge near LBL which has no lodging of its own aside from campgrounds. Top level room has nice view complete with a balcony area. Though there's not much to do around the area in the winter through no fault of the park, it was an overall nice stay. You have to remember, it's a... More

I stayed at Lake Barkley several years ago, it was great to see the update of the rooms bathrooms. They look really nice and I hope you continue to spurce up the rest of the place. I have a few ideas for the rooms that would not be very expensive. I think painting the dark walls to a lighter tan/gray... More

Thank you for posting your comments on your most recent trip to our lodge. We don't know if the lodge room walls will be painted; the original wood adds to the ambiance. There has been some discussion of going to the all white bed linens and we agree that would help lighten up the room. We are glad you were... More

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
