I would give this camp ground just a meh rating. Bathrooms were pretty clean which was great but the sites were not great. Pad sloped on both ends and the "level" part was barely big enough for the camper. Outside area was full of large rocks so we couldn't put our mat out. Picnic table was just gross as was the nasty firepit area. Went and looked at some other camp grounds while we were there and found others (Bailey's Point) that were much nicer that we will try next time we visit.

Site 95 is really only good for a Class B van or really small Class C. We managed to fit our 25’ travel trailer on the pad, but that was it, couldn’t fit our tow vehicle safely off the drive lane. Of course this was after we wanted to move away from the site we walked the campground and there are no level sites. The pull through sites have large humps and back-in sites have deep drop offs. Which is what happened to a neighbor last night, thankfully they didn’t damage anything. Many more nit-picky issues, but the beach was good enough and the resort part was clean. Stables for horse riding but didn’t get to partake. Might revisit for activities but not stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights in the middle of a two week camping trip. While my standards might have been low after sleeping on the ground for a week though some massive storms, this place was even better than I had hoped. we rented one of the cottages, which had two two bedrooms with two double beds each and TWO full bathrooms! there was also a full kitchen that was fully furnished with everything you need to cook a real meal. It rained the whole time we were there, so we didn't really explore much, and mainly used the cottage to dry out and reorganize all our camping equipment. The website advertises that the cottage are "on the lake" and while that my be true, there are woods between the cottage and the lake, so you can't actually see the water. The pool looked very nice and clean, and the lodge has a full restaurant. There is also a laundry facility in the campground area. We definitely will be back, when we can spend more time and enjoy some of the other activities offered. You could comfortably fit 8-10 people, and for under $100, you can't go wrong!

Spent the night at the Barren River Lake State Resort Park. We had been to this lodge several times but just for a meal in their restaurant and to visit the grounds. Upon checking in the staff was very polite and helpful. In several minutes were received our keys and were on our way to the room. The lodge itself is a bit dated but it is still comfortable. Our room was very comfortable and the view of the lake was pleasant. The bed was nice and the shower had good water pressure. The area was quiet and we had a wonderful nights sleep. The restaurant staff was also polite and friendly. I would recommend ordering off of the menu instead of the buffet. Some of the items were at best fair and tasteless. Other items were served warm but not hot or tasty. Overall the stay at the lodge was enjoyable and would consider going back. Dr. Marc PS 63:7
