Barren River Lake State Resort Park is a water-lover’s paradise surrounded by forested, rolling hills. It is located near Kentucky’s famous cave area, including the longest cave system in the world!

Lodge Rooms - Louie B. Nunn Lodge, surrounded by rolling, tree-covered hills, overlooks the beautiful 10,000-acre lake. The lodge has 51 rooms and offers full amenities. For mementos of your visit, browse The Barren Collection, which features Kentucky handcrafts.

Cottages - Enjoy the contemporary styling of the park's 22 cottages. Each cottage has two bedrooms and two baths. Several of our cottages provide charming lake views while other cottages are nestled in the woods providing a cozy getaway.

Dining - Visit Driftwood Restaurant and enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their famous hot brown and juicy burgers are on the menu. A strong supporter of KY Proud products, Driftwood Restaurant uses locally grown products when possible. The restaurant has seating for 146 people and has two separate private dining areas that may be used for banquets and special celebrations.

Golf - The golf course at Barren River Lake State Resort Park offers a challenging test in a relaxing setting. The course winds around hills and through valleys near the shore of Barren River Lake. The layout will test your course management skills. Accurate shots to well chosen pin positions are a must. Click here to visit the golf course web page.
