  • Beautiful scenery tucked away in Eastern Kentucky. Lodge was very nice an affordable. Pool was lovely. Food was delicious and staff was courteous and very helpful. Lake is beautiful with pontoon rental available. A great place any time of year.
  • A very good Kentucky state park. There are many great activities around the park. Including swimming, fishing, and boating. The park has a Lodge with dining area and bar. They offer all you can eat buffet during the summer season. Wonderful place to go for a quick trip or a long stay.
