Spend the hot “dog days” of July in some “cool” events and happenings at Lake Barkley State Resort Park.

Horseback riding has returned to Lake Barkley!! The stables, located on the Beach/Campground Road, are open to the public seven days a week with rides on every hour, beginning at 9am. The stables are closed from noon to 1pm, and the last ride goes at 4pm. Rides are $15 / person; all ages are welcome. For reservations, call 270-348-3329.

Lake Barkley is observing Play Golf America Month in July with a special promotion aimed at young golfers. From July 6 through July 31, any player 18 or under may play a free round (cart not included) at Barkley’s Boots Randolph Golf Course when accompanied by a paying adult. For those desiring an all-inclusive package, the popular Tee’s & Zzz’s golf packages are still available, which include overnight lodging, breakfast and dinner, 18 holes of golf with a golf cart, welcome gift card and preferred tee times. Package prices begin at $109 per person, per night, based on double occupancy, plus tax.

July’s full moon will rise in the company of a boat tour loaded and launched from Barkley Lodge on Tuesday, July 7, and again Wednesday, July 8. From the windows or outer deck of a two-story boat operated by a U.S.C.G.-licensed captain, tour participants will see the sun set and the full moon rise from the waters of Lake Barkley. At $25 per person, the 21?2-hour Full Moon Cruise offers an opportunity for visitors and local residents alike to get out on the water without the concerns of renting one’s own boat. Call 800-325-1708 to register.

On Saturday, July 11, Lake Barkley will celebrate Kentucky Trails Day with a Goat Island Canoe Tour from 9 a.m. to noon. Pennyrile State Park’s naturalist will join Lake Barkley State Park’s Recreation Leader for a morning paddling excursion around Little River’s Goat Island, locally known for its “wild” inhabitants. Prior paddling experience is not required for this 2 1?2 -hour tour, but pre-registration is – call ahead to 800-325-1708. Participation is limited, so sign up in advance. At $5 per person, it’s a summertime steal! Minors 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult; lifejackets are provided. Bring water, wear sunscreen, and prepare yourself for a pleasant morning on one of west Kentucky’s premier paddling trails.
