Lake Barkley State Resort Lodge will be renovating in coming months, following a visit from Kentucky Governor Ernie Fletcher Saturday and his allocation of nearly $1 million left over from this year’s budget.

The visit was a little unexpected, Park Manager John Rittenhouse said, but was pleasing nonetheless.

“We were lucky the governor came back so quick,” Rittenhouse said referring to Fletcher’s visit two weeks ago for the Benson International groundbreaking ceremony.

“(Fletcher) came down to look at the marina after he did the Benson announcement last week and I asked him to come back and stay with us and he said he would and I just figured he was blowing me off, you know. But his office called the next day and said that he was going to be staying for two days,” said Rittenhouse.

A release from the governor’s office said the park “will be substantially improved through a $35 million bond issue.” The bond was set aside this year and will benefit all of Kentucky’s state parks.
