Pretty state park lodge
Nice lodge. Very friendly staff. Comfortable mattress. Needs some updating, but overall clean. We had a pretty view of the lake from our room. Reasonably priced.

Room was clean besides some dried bugs on floor but we were on the first floor. Nice balcony and river view. Very friendly staff. Property was distant from food stops. About 30 minute drive to Mammoth Cave.

Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

We stayed in one of the cottages. Everyone was very friendly. Property was spotless and grounds were beautiful and very well kept, Cottage's furnishings and appliances are old and worn. Ice maker didn't work, toaster only toasted one side of bread (great for bagels) but no real deal breakers. Restaurant was only open Thursday through Sunday for carryout only Don't know if that was because of Covid or staffing. Lot of other restaurants in the area were closed as well.
