Is it any wonder some days I get next-to-nothing done?!
If you love birds like I do, I know you’ll want to sign up for Lake Barkley State Resort Park’s “Owl Weekend” April 22-23.
The weekend will include a night trek to see owls, an “Introduction to Owls” program on Friday night and a Saturday night program featuring live birds.
The cost for the entire weekend program is $35, per person, and includes one owl prowl (Friday or Saturday night) and the two programs at 7 p.m. each night. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather and bring a flashlight.
Reservations are required and can be made by calling 270-924-1131 or emailing Nick.Edmonds@ky.gov.
Lake Barkley State Resort Park is ridiculously beautiful and has one of our favorite lodges in the entire Kentucky State Park system. It’s an absolute work of art. The restaurant at Lake Barkley State Resort Park is also one of the best in the system. I have not eaten there in a while, but the last time I was there, I remember thinking it was outstanding.
In addition to a lodge, Lake Barkley State Park includes 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 park is near Cadiz and the Land Between the Lakes, at 3500 State Park Road just off Interstate 24. Exit at Highway 68. From the exit go west toward Cadiz and the park.
