I stayed here twice with the kids. The area is very nice...the wilderness and the lake, but the hotel is quite dated although it was clean and the grounds were clean. Just disappointing on how old & dated our room was. They have some park sponsored activities for the kids which is always nice (and wish they had more!) and... More

I love Kentucky! Such an amazing state and the state park system is superb. Our stay at Lake Barkley Lodge was relaxing and quiet. We stayed in a King bed room on the east side with a peaceful and serene view of Lake Barkley. The bed was very comfortable and the decor was comfy, rustic lodge style. The bathroom was... More

I wish I could be the person that really makes your day and helps make your decision to come here for vacation, but consider EVERYTHING! I will start from the beginning of my weekend at Lake Barkley lodge... I wanted something fun to do with the family for Easter so I found this resort thinking it would be just that,... More

Went to eat at the Lake Barkley Lodge Window on the Water Restaurant, well, at least we tried. On a Sunday right around noon it looked about half full. We waited right be the entrance to be seated while the hostess was fiddling with her computer, she had her back turned to us. Wanted to see how long it took... More

I was very excited when we first arrived, check in was easy and pleasant, front desk was very helpful. We received key for our room, I had previously read all the reviews and was a little worried. After opening the door you are transported back to the 70s. Which was fine. Our room was very clean but dated. This is... More

We stayed there this past weekend in Suite 301. It was not good! A dead mouse was very close in our bedroom, very close. The place is just dirty. The decor is 1960 which is fine if it is clean, but it's not. Breakfast buffet is nasty, bring your own coffee from home. The only good part of our trip... More

Read the poor reviews on this site before you ever book - I wish I would have! The staff was argumentative when I complained and more or less said I was lying. They need a remodel of the buildings AND their staff!

This place was a huge disappointment. I called probably 10 times prior to our arrival to ask questions and make sure I knew what I was going to be getting self into. When speaking to the staff at the front desk, I was told the cottages were "modern" and "nice, clean, the highest quality they had." and that the food... More

First and foremost, I would like to take this opportunity to respond to this comment/complaint. Originally when this person called to make her reservation she wanted to reserve a cottage but during the reservation process the only availability we had was a Cabin. She was not happy because of the number of people that was going to be in her... More

We decided to stay here for one night after picking up our son from Scout camp on the other side of the lakes thinking it would be nice to hang out in the indoor heated therapeutic pool. The pool was still indoors, but hardly heated or therapeutic. It was not freezing or anything, but not enjoyable. I wouldn't have gotten... More
