“Absolutely Wonderful Vacation”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

This was our first time staying at King Creek resort and I have to say we were not disappointed at all. We stayed in cabin #9..The Fisherman's cabin....and it was very spacious and rustic. The cabin was very well equipped with everything you would need from home. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help you in any way. We needed our hall light fixed and within minutes the gentleman was there to replace the bulbs. They really make you feel welcome and almost like family. The lake is absolutely beautiful and the scenery is as well. The resort has it's own private beach area and also has a very nice play area for the kids, a fire pit area, and plenty of patio furniture for you to use. Our family is not big on fishing but everywhere you looked there were big fish jumping out of the water. We rented a pontoon for the day and had the best time. The prices of the cabin rentals as well as the boat rentals are very reasonable. We went to lake Cumberland last year and I can honestly say that King Creek Resort is now our favorite place to vacation. We will most certainly be coming back next year. Our only very minor complaints would be that we wished they had had pull raft rentals for our day on the pontoon and that the internet service be faster and more reliable. Other than that King Creek Resort is a wonderful place for your family to vacation. 2 thumbs up guys.....Well done!! Can't wait to see you again next summer!!

Room Tip: The entire resort is quiet and so peaceful. From what we could tell all of the cabins are very nice...

We had a relaxing week here, bass fishing and enjoying the beautiful scenery at Kentucky Lake. We would recommend these cabins, especially to those who enjoy fishing. We will definitely come back again!

Everybody with the resort has been very professional and friendly. Anything you could need you can find. Rates are very reasonable on both rooms and rentals. My new favorite place on the lake. They have all you need just pack up the family and head out.

We traveled to King Creek in May, 2013 with another couple and stayed in Cabin #2, The Lunker Buster. This was my first trip to the area and to King Creek. The trip was initiated by the wife of our friend, as the 2 guys had visited King Creek many times and many years before during fishing trips with their fellow co-workers. So, this was a couples trip (the guys went fishing every day and the gals shopped). Not knowing what to expect, I was pleasantly surprised at the comfort of our cabin. It is not plush by any means, but quite adequate and convenient, and much more than I expected from a fishing cabin. The cabin has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, so each couple had their own bathroom space. The living room had 2 sofas as well as an easy chair and big screen TV. The dining room table had 6 chairs and the kitchen was amazingly well-equipped (we even had wine glasses – yay!). The only dish/utensil we could not find was a slotted spoon for our fish fry. Everything worked well – the toaster/coffee maker/microwave/stove and oven. The tap water gets really hot really fast and the water even made good coffee (we had brought our own water, just in case, but didn’t need it). Our bed was extremely comfortable, and our friends reported the same. Whenever we needed extra towels, toilet paper, etc., they were provided promptly. The outside deck is the width of the back of the cabin and wraps around one corner of the cabin to the entrance door. There was a nice patio table/chairs on the deck, as well as a charcoal grill. One of the reasons our friends have always liked King Creek is because they have covered boat slips for their boat. The dock and slip area and fish cleaning area are all handy and in good working order. We also felt that the cabin was reasonably priced. Add to all of these positives the fact that the catfish were really biting and the guys caught many!
For the gals, I would like to report that there are many shopping venues in Murray, which is an approximate 30 minute drive from King Creek. We enjoyed shopping at the Peddler’s Mall and a fun thrift store in the same complex. In addition, another antique/shopping mall, Trends and Treasures is just down the street. Downtown has a few nice shops – we enjoyed The Bookmark (great variety of new and used books/gifts) and Wild Raspberry (gifts and many scrapbooking supplies). Benton, KY has a nice antique/shopping mall downtown as well, with many booths under one roof. Approximately 15 minutes south of Murray is Hazel, KY, which is right on the KY-TN border. Hazel is a quaint little town with many antique shops, whose owners are quite friendly and helpful. TM Creations has antiques as well as quality hand-made jewelry. A MUST is the Magnolia Tea Room in a small cottage on the main street. They have many varieties of tea and the menu items are amazing (the desserts as well). Our waiter was very attentive and patiently answered all of our many questions.
I would highly recommend King Creek!

First off we want to thank Jimmie for always being there to answer our questions and prompt service, to Jim Jr for his prompt repairs on the boat, and Jim Sr for a quick repair of the fish cleaning station, use of the golf cart and locating some laundry soap.

We stayed 7 days and loved every minute of it. We stayed in cabin 2 which is very close to the water. It was a bit big for the 2 of us but for the great price it was great having all the extra room. We liked the privacy wall between the cabins though the neighbors were pretty nice and we had long chats with them at night. We loved the fact that there was a huge deck on the cabin that wrapped from the back door to the front door. The boat we had the trolling motor died after 4 days, not sure wha the problem was but Jimmie gave us the bigger boat to use the remaining 3 days and did not charge us extra. He didn't have to do that but we sure appreciated.
While it is true there are repairs that are needed they are in the works but it did not affect the fun we had on our trip.
It would be nice if there was bait in the store. Another suggestion would be to have laundry supplies. Even something like the new laundry balls of soap or single use boxes. If you are flying in you don't want to buy a whole bottle if you are staying a whole week.
Thanks for a great week. Dave and Robin from Arizona

I would definitely reccomend King Creek to visitors of KY Lake! The location is ideal. The cabins provide privacy while also being among a little "community". The new owners seem to be working on some necessary repairs and updates. We were a little intimidated by all of the cabin "rules". However, I would say that the owners were a little more laid back than their set of rules implied. Our biggest complaint would have to be that there are little to no supplies in the boat store. The absolute best thing about King Creek is the atmosphere created by the seasonal renters! We had a blast and will definitely return!

thank you for the very nice review. We are working hard on improving king creek. basic rules in cotttages are no-smoking and wash dish's before you leave and i believe these are pretty standard, And yes were pretty laid back, we want you to enjoy your stay. As for store with just 8 cottage's we have very little turn over,hard to keep things on shelves. Most guest's use 2 store,s close to campground or make it a family trip to your near-by wal-mart about 11 miles away. And as for our seasonal campers they do enjoy their campground and are always lookiing for new smiling faces to share a tale or two if your want. Thanks for coming see ya soon jim sr
