The good news is that the lake and the surrounding park are absolutely beautiful. The bad news is that the resort is absolutely filthy on the outside. There is absolutely no one cleaning (other than the rooms). The building the restaurant is in "smells" terrible. You can't see out the big beautiful windows because they haven't been cleaned - you...

This park is a beautifull setting and great for camping. The laundry facilities were coated in bugs and the shower heads are made for people 5 ft tall or less. The bathroom facilities are average. Otherwise it's a great place.

It's all in your expectation level. Lake Barkley Lodge is a casual, laid back lodge with nice lake views and beautiful wooded property. The rooms are very understated, DARK wood paneled walls. Comfortable bed. Sofa upholstery/overall room design lacking in style. The bathrooms have been updated since my last visit with granite and new tile. Ask for a room on... More

Wow, this place is in a beautiful setting, but the outside of the lodge seemed really unkept. When we got out of the car, the first thing I noticed was tons of cob webs and bird droppings. We had a room on the bottom floor and were disappointed that there were old dead leaves piled up everywhere at the bottom... More

We stayed here for three nights during the Fourth of July weekend. Although our room was on the "lower level," the way the lodge is constructed allows for each room to have a balcony above ground level facing the lake. We absolutely loved the view! Due to the holiday weekend, most, if not all rooms were booked but you never... More

I have to say that the service, the rooms and most of all the use of the convention center was awesome for a Wedding in July.

I agree the rooms are a bit outdated, but they're clean and the beds are comfy. We stayed on the 1st floor and the resort could use some power washing. Now that's the worst I can say. When you enter the room and open the curtain, the lake view is gorgeous. I love to fish, hike, be outside in beautiful... More

Stayed in a bottom room. The view of the lake is spectacular. The food options are limited in the dining room and the food was bland. The view from the dining room is gorgeous though. No refrigerator or microwave in the room further limits choices/options. I loved the grounds, staff is friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, the... More

We were going to spend 2 nights here but iafter seeing our dungeon like room on the lower level we decided to check out after one night. The suite, 101, was at the very end of the lower level right next to the non functioning pool. When we booked our room we were told there was no construction but this... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; unfornately the repairs on the Dining Room Balcony took a little longer than anticpated but had to be completed due to safety reasons.
