Welcome to Barren River Lake State Resort Park – home to lush green rolling hills, a boastful 10,000 acre lake and some of the most spectacular wildlife in southern Kentucky.

Whether you are out for a short day trip, quick overnight stay, or a week-long family vacation, Barren River Lake State Resort Park has something for everyone.

The nostalgic Louie B. Nunn Lodge features many different amenities for our park guests, including five spacious indoor meeting rooms. Visit the Recreation hall to see live reptiles, read storybooks, and discover Kentucky wildlife.
