Barren River Lake State Park – Lucas, KY


Barren River Lake State Park has both pull-throughs and back-in sites. The good news on the pull-throughs: They are long! The bad news on the pull-throughs: Although paved, they are not level. In fact, the slots are very much “humped” in a small hill. I had to move five times before I found one that did not stress out my hydraulic levelers. Further, the pull-throughs have partial shade. The back-ins are more shady and appear fairly level, but will only accommodate small (30 foot or less) RV’s.

The park offers AAA Motor Club Discounts. The full rates are $19 for weekdays, $21 for weekends. I was surprised to find that this state park has laundry machines. Unusual to me for a state park. However, the laundry machines were outside under a cover that could be pulled down when not in use, so the laundry facilities were a little dirty. Restrooms were so so, I would wear shower shoes.
