Oh, my... I just have to contradict the review dissing the food at this resort park... I'm quite familiar with all of them (visit frequently) and have to say this is the BEST, and the others are really, really GOOD. This one has a bona fide gourmet chef and is actually open to the public; you can't find a seat after church on Sundays. They also participate in the "Kentucky Proud" locally grown food program, so all is fresh and native. The seafood is out of this world; the Shrimp Scampi, Catfish Lips, and Rainbow Trout are to die for, and the Hot Brown is (in my opinion as a Kentuckian) very good, as is the luncheon Ruben sandwich. If you have appetite enough for the buffet, you'll love everything!!!
The lodge itself is gorgeous architecturally, with a huge stone fireplace casting lights on the soaring glass windows in winter, although I wish the park were still a ski lodge and not a golf course, as we have plenty of those and NO ski lodges now...
The pool is fabulous and incredibly convenient' it's literally at the door of your lodge room, as are the vending and ice machines. If you prefer a more rustic setting, there's the Woodland Wing overlooking trees and hills, which gives more balcony privacy...
I can't praise Kentucky State Parks enough, and this one is especially inviting, with it's friendly front desk staff and very convenient location right off the interstate; although you don't have to drive miles and miles out of your way, it's a "retreat."
This park was built in the 30s by the CCC and is just lovely.
