The Barren River Lake State Resort Lodge is a great place to stay. Nice view, good rooms, good price. In the winter, the restaurant is closed; so one must travel to Glasgow, about 12 miles, for a nice restaurant.

Sandwich was very good as were the fresh (not frozen) onion rings. My wife got the salad with rib eye slices ($10) which was huge. She enjoyed her meal...

Our room in the lodge at Barren River Lake looked like a lot of "Quality Family Time" must have taken place there. The room was clean and secure at the same time that it looked comfortably worn from plenty of use. Every room appears to have a big picture window overlooking the sunsets on the lake. The 2.5-mile paved walking...

We visited this gorgeous park for the first time. It is an absolutely beautiful, well-maintained park. There is a paved 2-1/2 mile bike hiking trail and several other more rustic hiking trails. We took the Pete's Creek 1.2 mile trail. It is unimproved and could be challenging for less mobile individuals. It is a very enjoyable hike. The park offers...
