Barren River Lake State Resort Park
Years ago, homesteading settlers travelling east from the Appalachian Mountains encountered the first large grasslands they had ever seen. Today, we call these areas prairies. But in those days, the explorers were unfamiliar with the French word. They called these grasslands - the barrens. Today, however, theres nothing barren about Barren River Lake State Resort. Crowning atop a hill above a 10,000 acre lake, the lodge boasts one of the most beautiful vistas in the park system. Offering 51 guest rooms, 22 cottages, 3 meeting rooms, an 18-hole championship golf course plus a spacious dining room, Barren River Lake state Resort is the perfect place to meet old friends and maybe make a few new ones. Conveniently located off US Highway 31 East, 100 miles south of Louisville, Ky., 100 miles north of Nashville, Tn., and just 37 miles south of Mammoth Cave National Park.
