Birding on Barkley
If you love birds as much as we do, this is definitely something you’ll want to experience. Lake Barkley State Resort Park and Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area will hold “Birding on Barkley” on May 11, 2013.
Guests will be able to experience the peak of songbird migration as birding guides offer identification and viewing tips and help search out prothonotaries, parulas, and pewees. Many warblers venture along Lake Barkley at this time, so visitors need to keep your binoculars ready.
Discover birding hotspots around Lake Barkley and Land Between The Lakes by joining us on one or both of our hotspot tours. Tours are $10 per person and depart at 8 a.m. to explore the northern end of Land Between The Lakes, and 1 p.m. to explore the southern end. Tour sizes will be limited to allow the best viewing opportunities, so make your reservations early by calling 270-924-2020.
Families and individuals can enjoy other entertainment and lodging opportunities at Lake Barkley State Resort Park. This beautiful park is the largest state resort park in Kentucky and features a lodge, cottages, the Windows on the Water Restaurant, a seasonal campground, 18-hole golf course, fitness center with indoor pool, marina, fishing, tennis courts, hiking trails, gift shop, and recreational and nature programming.
The Windows on the Water Restaurant is outstanding. We, as you’d expect, visit a lot of the Kentucky State Resort Parks and ALWAYS dine in their restaurants. The restaurant at Lake Barkley State Resort Park is one of the best in the system. I’ve never left the restaurant with anything but a smile on my face!
The park is located at 3500 State Park Road in Cadiz. From Interstate 24, take the Highway 68 exit west toward Cadiz.
For more information and to make your reservations contact Mary Schmidt, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the lodge at call 1-800-325-1708. Whatever you do, be sure you enjoy at least one meal at the Windows on the Water restaurant.
