I can't decide whether to rate this place poor or average. So I rated it average and will let you decide based on my comments. I guess the service we received when we had problems makes me want to go with average. Everyone who worked there was very nice.... We reserved a cabin, but upon arrival to the cabin, the...

Great place to rest and restore. No better view from rooms and restaurant in KY. Spa and fitness center are exceptional. Food in restaurant is good--always a good buffet. Addition of KY beers and spirits is especially fun!

2 of my daughters, 2 grandchildren, and son in law stayed in a recently renovated cabin at the Lake Barkley Resort state park. In recent years we as a family have made a point of taking a weekend to the area to spy some eagles and enjoy the winter outdoors. The "Eagle Weekends" sponsored by the 3 resorts around the...

This was our first time at Lake Barkley so we did not know what to expect. It is a rustic lodge in keeping with the outdoor themes of the park. It is situated right on the lake with a marina very near. The lodge has an outdoor pool and a very nice game room. There are probably easy ways to...

Every staff member is so polite, helpful, and wonderful. Food is good. However the rooms have maintenance issues. Linens and stuff are clean but smells are horrible. We checked in and went through 3 rooms, we never complain but we had to switch rooms. First room smelled like dead mice, I was even afraid my clothes would stink if we...

We booked a room on the upper level, checking in on Thanksgiving Day. It was ready on time and there was parking nearby. Access to the room and lodge was easy. The balcony had a lovely view over the lake. The room itself was clean with the exception of cobwebs on the high windows that the cleaning staff could not...

Just stayed one night and will never make that mistake again. The room was nasty cobwebs all over. Asked when I booked the book if I could check in early was assured that would be no problem. Went to check in was told no I could not check in by a VERY hateful lady. Needless to say myself my kids...

We checked in on Monday the 17th. We were given a room on the bottom floor, no elevator, no ramp, had to take every thing down a little at a time as the luggage carts can't go there... room had spider webs, and dust everywhere, very musty smell and the A/C didn't work. After talking to the front desk they...

It does appear the state of Kentucky is starting to put some more money in to the parks. There is a lot I love about this lodge. The view is amazing from all of the rooms. I have heard they have renovated the cottages. The indoor pool and fitness center in amazing...except this last time when an obnoxious large family...
