Alcohol now sold at Lake Barkley State Park

Lake Barkley State Resort Park became eligible to sell alcohol in early August. But the park started with a “soft opening” — offering only beer cans at the golf course pro shop — and just introduced its full selection at the dining room and convention center on Tuesday night. The park now offers wine, liquor and bottled beer, including a range of Kentucky brands, Park Manager John Jordan said. However, the new beverage choices entered the menu quietly. The park will not advertise alcohol products, and it will not add a bar to the dining room, Jordan said.
