Our daughter and her fiance' were married at Pennyrile Forest State Resort in a beautiful outdoor wedding on 8/3/2012. The reception was to be held outdoors under tents that were set up the night before. Severe storms passed through the area and destroyed the tents not to mention all the rain! The park manager and event coordinator as well as...

I enjoyed my stay at Pennyrile Forest State Resort so much! The resort is very secluded. Loved the private balcony and view from my room. I was there with 2 of my colleagues on a business trip. We got together in the library room to unwind and download after a hard day's work. Very peaceful and relaxing. Wi-fi worked great...

Guests are allowed to feed the animals outside their rooms which lead to my husband being greeted by a raccoon in the middle of the afternoon on the way to the room. In addition to that we had wild cats meeting us at our room waiting for us to feed them. Nothing like finding a pork chop laying on the...

I am so very upset at how we were treated this weekend at Pennyrile Forrest State Park. I dont know how to begin. My wife and I made reservations in advance to stay at the camp ground with our two little girls. We were never informed that the beach was closed. This was one of the main reasons we wanted...

I stayed in a cabin on the lake with 5 family members, a trip we try to make annually. The cabin had a new couch, new lamps, and I would guess new beds. They aren't stylish but very comfy, which is enough for me. We caught the most fish that we ever had... bluegill, crappie, bass, but the water is...

Every year for the past 5 years we have come to the Pennyrile Forest State Resort for our family Easter dinner. There is an expected wait for a table because it is so busy. But, there are things to do while you wait. They have a game room, and plenty of seating outside overlooking the lake, and they also have...

The dogwood are blooming! We spent a quiet, restful night at the lodge. Our room was clean and the water in the shower was hot. We enjoyed walking on the paths. The continental breakfast was good. They had some of the best Biscuits and gravy I have had on our trip. I enjoyed sitting on our balcony just listening to...

I had stayed here before on business and wanted to return with my wife. She was very happy to stay here. The lodge and cabins are set around a lake with trails and a golf course, tennis court, and bb court. The lodge cafe has good food and a wonderful view while dining. It's the kind of place that makes...

We held are wedding ceremony at the Lodge this weekend (12/03/2011) in front of the fire place. The whole lodge was decorated for Christmas and was absolutely beautiful.

I went to the park for the weekend and had a great time. Please keep in mind this is a state park-so there is a level of "roughing it" involved. The park itself is beautiful with a nice swimming area and a place to rent canoes. We had a great time staying in the lodge and I loved reading on...

“Rooms 207 or further are unlikely to have decent internet. Ask for a second floor room, as they are street level. Cottages are further from the main building, but provide privacy.”
