Lodging & Camping

With an expansive view of Kentucky Lake as the Tennessee River pushes its waters through the gates of historic Kentucky Dam, guests to the Main Lobby often find themselves spending time just lounging while enjoying the panoramic view. While the 72 rooms of the lodge offer a private patio or balcony, the Village Green Inn is located near the 18-hole golf course where accommodations may be rented for individuals or groups. Sixty-one cottages are also available, reminding visitors that this state park was once a village--still with its own post office. The park is pet-friendly and camping is seasonal. Lodging available by late afternoon. Check out by 11 a.m., local time.
