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. (Get the loaded burger!) Since we don't leave Izzy-dog unattended, my hubby and daughter went to the breakfast buffet at the Lodge... More

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. Thank you for bringing... More

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

We stayed in a pet friendly room for 2 nights and I was glad to have a lake view like all rooms seem to have. Very peaceful setting but... We chose this state resort lodge as part of our first KY vacation because of the view from the pool shown on the website. We were not there to boat, fish,... More

A bit disappointed in this park although the marina was great. Lodge rooms are quite old, dark and very out dated. Was welcomed to our room with a big cigar butt in the patio ashtray the former client left. There is only 1 (one) cooking grill in the entire picnic area & extremely few in the entire park, must be... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments about your most recent stay at our Lodge. Our Lodge is entirely constructed of wood which gives us a unique look but sometimes gives the rooms a darker appearance. We have grills at the campground, cottages/cabins, picnic area, and Little River Lodge just can't have them around the Lodge due... More

Before we left for a week at this lodge, I read all the reviews and tried hard to discount people who complained about dark rooms and spiders, but we left after a single night for many reasons. Note that we are very used to lodges built long before this one, as we frequently seek out and visit CCC lodges built... More
