We decided to try BRSP for a quick weekend getaway. We saw for ourselves what others had recommended to us. We stayed at the campground. One negative comment regarding the Wi-Fi available. Although it was a little out of the way from Glasgow, we found the campground park nestled in wooded area. Restaurant was excellent, the servers were awesome. Everyone... More

Wife and I decided to get away for a long weekend and for no particular reason picked Barren River. The stay was pleasant and relaxing but not without issues. Check in was an experience. Got there a little early and was told to come back in 45 minutes, no problem. Returned and was told they had a power outage and... More

I had a meeting at the lodge and arrived early. The buffet was not open so I ordered dinner salad. It was fast and fresh. The server was friendly and understanding that time mattered. Fast, clean and friendly. A+ experience

The restaurant at the Barren River Lake Lodge is a gem in the area. There are very few dining options within 20 miles, and the Lodge's restaurant is always clean, well managed, very good quality, and service is great. If you are in the area, you won't find a better dining experience within a 20 minute drive.

We just returned home from a four day stay in the campground. The cg was well maintained and the sites were spacious and clean. We had site 99 which was a pull through site at the end of the loop and at the top of the hill. Waking to birds singing and sunshine streaming through the trees was the best... More

My husband and I spent two nights here for our anniversary. The staff at check in and check out were very friendly and helpful. Especially upon our arrival she answered all of our questions and suggested some good fishing spots to my husband. Our room was clean and very comfortable.

The Sand Hill Crane Tour is excellent! It was very organized from beginning to end. The Park Rangers from various parks around Kentucky came in to assist with the crane tour and they were all very knowledgeable and you could tell they loved what they do. The cottage was very clean and the beds were really comfortable. I would definitely... More

Staff...hospitality at its best, including one member doing everything possible to help me connect to the internet. Food...outstanding and plentiful. If you need internet for anything of importance (online classes, career oriented, etc.)...beware! The WiFi and the direct connection lacks anything to be desired. Also, phone connection in the lodge rooms is basically non-existent. It's 2016 and the world revolves... More
