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...

For all the people who complained of spiders, bugs, and "smells" : you are in a cabin, by the lake, in the woods! We loved this place and can't wait to come back, alone and with the kids ! Rooms are clean and it is beautiful here!

We stayed at the lodge in mid-October. Overall our stay was pleasant. The pluses of staying at the lodge have mainly to do with the beautiful outdoor setting. We took advantage of the hiking trails through the forest, as well as the paved path along the lake. The fall colors were just starting to show. If we'd been there a...

We've been coming to Lake Barkley for more than 15 years and it can't be beat for a family vacation spot. It's set right on the lake; a marina is next door, you can fish from the dock, and there's a game room, small nature center and restaurant on site. It's best in the summer when the large outdoor pool...

My wife and I were just recently out there and we found the blowing cold air into it. The outside temperature was at that time in the 60's so checked the thermostat and switched it to heat setting but it would not work. I called the front desk for help they said they'll have someone work on it and the...

We rented a 2 bedroom cabin at Lake Barkley State Park last weekend. The cabin was adequate in space and we'll stocked. It was very basic, but comfortable. However, it was not very clean. The floor seemed OK, but it was obvious that someone had napped on one of the beds and the bed had not been changed. The kitchen...

A stay at the lodge brings back memories of when I grew up in the area. Great view of lake from balcony. Clerk checking me even looked at available rooms to give me the best view. I really enjoyed my stay....quaint, quiet, and relaxing
