If you are looking for a lodge with a cabin outdoor atmosphere this is the spot. We were visiting family in Kentucky and expected more of a resort style accomodation. The furniture is very outdated and I was very shocked at all of the spider webs and bugs on patio. The of the lake and wildlife was the key selling...

Definitely geared toward the older crowd. Resort overall was ok, but needs some modernization. We were shocked that they closed the indoor pool at 2pm on labor day weekend when it is raining outside. Where is the manager?

On Sundays the Fitness Center with the indoor pool does close at 2pm but was open till 8pm the other nights throughout Labor Day Weekend.

We just spent a couple of days at the Lodge and it was wonderful. We had a great relaxing vacation and the lodge was the perfect place to stay to relax. We stayed in an upper level room near the pool. The high ceiling room was great. Everything was clean and neat. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching...

We do love staying in State lodges, and Kentucky sure does a good job. It's such a pretty setting here, and our room turned out very nice. Plus, they are VERY pet friendly here. We booked a 2nd level room as I like the high, wood ceilings...very "lodgey". But, when we got here, there was nothing available for our entire...

This State park is a little "Dated", but WOW they have something for everyone! The rooms were clean and efficient, and the view from the private porch was out of this world. Quiet and peaceful. There is skeet shooting, boat rentals, fishing rod loaners, a sandy beach for every age, clean pool, tennis courts, indoor swimming pool, a game room...

Barkley lodge is a nice rustic lodge near LBL which has no lodging of its own aside from campgrounds. Top level room has nice view complete with a balcony area. Though there's not much to do around the area in the winter through no fault of the park, it was an overall nice stay. You have to remember, it's a...

Thank you for posting your comments on your most recent trip to our lodge. We don't know if the lodge room walls will be painted; the original wood adds to the ambiance.
