Went to Blue Licks state park yesterday for the 3rd year in a row, for their Thanksgiving buffet. First year it was VERY good, with a variety of meats, vegetables, all hot & fresh. Last year, somewhat less so, but this time was the absolute worst! Guess state of Kentucky is cutting back on the state parks, which were once... More

Great place to visit and eat. The staff was friendly. Looking forward to return. Everything is so beautiful and lots of history about the civil war. The buffet was awesome with lots of variety to choose from. All the food is home cooking with fresh vegetables and deserts.

over the years we've stayed at all the ky state parks & the lodge rooms are all very similar. what separates blue licks from the others is Paul Tierney, the recreation director. paul schedules many different events such as valentines murder mystery, canoe trips, hikes, & for the past 3 years a new years eve dinner theater with comedy &...

Like everywhere else there are good room and better rooms, good views and not so good views. I love this place hidden in the hills of Kentucky. If you are tired of the big city this is the place to relax. Southern hospitality in every way. I found the rooms very clean. Dining room workers as well as the room... More

I wasn't that please with the management at the front desk. I was assigned to a ground floor and I wanted a second tier room. I was told that there was no way what so ever to change my room due to a full night. Then I asked why I was placed on the first floor in the first place... More

I've stayed at this Kentucky State Park a couple of times for business, and really haven't had the opportunity to use it for recreation; in this very rural part of the state, there are few other options. Though the room was clean, the linens, blankets, and bed cover really could stand a good cleaning. There was a bit of a... More

We go here several times a year. Mostly camping. The campground is small but adequate. Nice nature programs by both Tierneys. We have stayed in the lodge when our town has had two ice storms over the years. Some how the lodge doesn't loose power. The staff here is great. The older servers have mostly gone and young ones have... More

Stayed in a lodge suite for 2 nights including New Year's Eve. The suite was nice but definitely needed some updating. Old tv, furniture, window treatments and...wait for it....bed that comes out of the wall! Yep when you walk in, you think "where will we sleep, etc?" But then (just like when we were on our honeymoon 12 yrs ago)... More
