Lake Barkley State Resort Park sits on the shores of one of the largest manmade lakes in the nation, and the conference facilities are top notch. Crowned by a convention center with 6,300 square feet of floor space and accented by the water view Sunrise and Elizabeth Hocks Rooms, each 1,700 square feet, Lake Barkley is the ideal location for your conference.
Convention-goers can stay on site in one of 130 rooms, five suites, or nine two-bedroom cabins, putting them only a short distance from Windows on the Water, the park’s restaurant (which seats 280 people), and the convention floor. Rooms look out over Lake Barkley, making for stunning sunsets, and afford easy access to the water where the fishing is fine.
For family reunions or especially the families of conference attendees, Lake Barkley and the Cadiz area offers a number of activities to fill the day.
There are nine miles of easy hiking trails in the park, as well as equestrian activities, an outdoor and heated indoor pool (located in the impressive fitness center), tennis courts, a playground, and, during the season, organized nature discovery activities.
Of course, Lake Barkley offers up a host of activities. From the nearby marina, you can charter a fishing guide or rent a boat to explore the lake and fish where you decide.
Or you can head over to Prizer Point Marina to rent a jet ski, kayak, or standup paddleboard, or let the young and young at heart enjoy a round of mini-golf, swim, and play the day away.
