No Beach for Barren River Lake State Park

Aug 5, 2011

Barren River Lake is finally down to its summer pool, meaning the Army Corps of Engineers beaches should be open. But Barren River Lake State Resort Park chose not to open the beach this summer, Park Manager Lisa Davis said. “We decided not to open because of the resources it would take,” Davis said. “To bring in sand would cost $7,000 and I didn’t think it would be fiscally responsible to do that with just a month left in the season and then have another flood in the spring and have to bring more in.”
