Great little family getaway. Cabins were pricey at almost two hundred a night but they were well appointed and the ice cold A/C worked great on a hot, humid day. Parking was very convenient though some cabins sit right next to the road (still fairly quiet inside). The cabin's cozy porch, picnic table and campfire ring areas made great use of the outdoor space.

Our second night we decided to save some money (almost half) and stay in accomodations attached to the main lodge. Our room had a great view of the pool area and the friendly lifeguards allowed our kids to play with their floating/water toys. Downstairs hosts a reasonably priced restaurant with good food and accomodating staff. The lobby is perhaps the most stunning feature with its oversized windows and cathedral ceilings. At night we relaxed on the cozy armchairs and enjoyed watching a movie on their large flat-panel tv.

Within the park you'll also find a small lake to go paddle boating on, a miniature golf course, a playground and a fun privately-operated miniature train with a nice conductor. There's also golf and tennis facilities, hiking trails and a beautiful pavillion for parties/receptions.

Finally, if you decide to venture into town for a meal, Down on Main Street in Owenton @(502) 662-0262, was a great cheap place to eat. The service was a little slow but the quality of the food and drinks more than made up for it. Oh, and it's the only decent sit-down restaurant open on Sunday nights! (lol)

Made online reservation. Honored gracefully...1 bedroom suite cottage, everything you need, linen and towel service mobile! Came for 3 day fishing excursion with lakeside cottage access, not bad. Lodge restaurant, Two Rivers has a generous buffet ---breakfast w/fried apples and cheddar bacon potatoes-lunch w/ soup and salad bar---dinner w/ fried catfish, bbq and cheese selection, very good value. Planning late April reservation for better fishing experience, August not good for fishing too hot. Will revisit happily. Also Casino access less than 20 miles away.

The lodge rooms are a step back in time to the 1960s. The wood panel walls and outdated furniture and bedspreads took me back to my childhood and the smell reminded me of my grandmother's house - not in a good way. The 19 inch old style television was sad compared to flat panels of today. The A/C unit worked sporadically leaving the room uncomfortable.

Do yourself a favor and do not stay here. Stick to the hotel chains near the Interstate.

What’s the best word to use to describe the lodges at Kentucky SRP? One could say “beautiful” but that would better describe their locations-- One could say “romantic” but if you seek lone “solitude” you’ll find that too-- “Nice” for some might describe the staff, for others the overall appearance-- The best I could think of is “wow” (with “neat” a close 2nd)-- If the lodge is in a park built by the CCC, even better-- Rustic foyers and fireplaces are the icing on the cake-- The lodge at General Butler is all of this—

GBSRP is ideal for families, but in my opinion its where you would take your grandkids-- Swimming pools, mini-golf, 9 hole golf course, playgrounds, recreation fields, picnic/pavilion area, war memorials, cemeteries, lakes, fishing, restaurant, overlooks--the place is huge… While I have no issues with the size, one would have to drive to enjoy all the amenities-- The rooms are comfortable, nothing fancy. No complaints, definitely a recommended destination.
