We only stayed for a night, and didn't get to experience any amenities beyond our room. So with that in mind... If you enjoy dank, musty rooms, with moldy bathtub grout, spider infested balconies, and wood paneling so dark it sucks in light like a hospitality-sized black hole, then this is your #1 vacation destination! Our room had that "Cabin... More

The setting at the Lake Barkley Lodge is spectacular. Unfortunately, the state of Kentucky does not provide enough funds to properly maintain the property. For example, the carpet in our room was very dirty upon check-in. We asked the maid to vacuum it. She didn't have a vacuum cleaner on her cart and she went to get one. While vacuuming,... More

It is a beautiful old lodge that has seen it's day and needs tlc. The views are great. The staff was pleasant to us and always very friendly. Did I say the views are great.

The Lake Barkley Lodge is part of the Lake Barkley (Kentucky) State Park and is a quiet place to get away and relax. The lodge, guest rooms, and pool area all have beautiful views of the lake and also of the "Land between the Lakes" region, which is a protected national recreation area. The rooms are basic, but clean and... More

I experienced very poor customer service at the Lake Barkley Marina. My spouse and I had a pontoon boat reserved for the morning of AUG 3. When approaching the counter to check in, the young lady designated to help customers rudely cut my husband off when he was speaking to check in. When he asked her a question she would... More

My family and I spent one night at the lodge. Check in was easy. Staff was friendly. We have stayed in many lodges and were not expecting anything fancy, but the room needed attention. Old, dirty carpet, leaking ceiling and mold in the bathroom. The food was good with a lot of variety. Pool was outstanding and the views were... More

Upon arrival at the Lake Barkley Lodge, we were greeted with a friendly and helpful individual at check-in. Once we got to our room, our excitement quickly turned to disappointment. Our room smelled musty and the carpet on the floor was old. The bathroom was updated nicely, but there was black mold on the tile and shower curtain. The lake... More

Lodge rooms are wood panelled, and the wood odor when you first enter reminded me of summer camp. Room furnishings are rather dated also, but the bathroom has seen some modernization. Rooms are clean and in decent condition. Not to bad for the price. Restaurant on site which had vegetarian food (veggie burger and veggie wrap). Also has pool and... More

We stayed here as part of a family reunion. The Wi-Fi is limited. The little River Lodge is in need of major updates. The main Lodge rooms are better, bathrooms are nice. But there are cobwebs everywhere. The marina restaurant has decent food but listed a boil on the menu button didn't mention that it was only available on weekends.... More

Lake Barkley is the prettiest and my favorite of all the State Parks I've ever been to while growing up and after being married, too. The cost of our room was more than reasonable, having made our reservation through the state parks website. Our upper level double bed room with the vaulted ceiling was clean and comfortable and the view... More
