The appeal of Buzzard Rock Resort is off the water - 100 acres of woodlands and serene pathways are filled with wildlife. No, you won't see any actual buzzards here. But you're likely to spot large game at the nearby Elk & Bison Prairie or learn hands-on at the Woodlands Nature Center.
Bass boats and 16-foot John boats are available for rent from Buzzard Rock's 285-slip marina. The staff here knows many of the endless fishing hot spots in Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley. Each lake is fed by a different river system, and both thrive with crappie, catfish, a variety of bass and more!
It's not all about Kentucky fishing and family vacations at Buzzard Rock Resort. The onsite Buzzard Rock Café serves three meals a day; the Low Down Buzzard Bar is the only establishment on the lake serving wine, beer and spirits. Enjoy the spacious deck and nightly live music during the summer!
Buzzard Rock Resort rests in a cove near the canal which joins Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley - some of the best recreational waters in the U.S. In all there are 4,000 miles of shoreline to explore, and it's easy from Buzzard Rock; boat rentals are on site, and your cottage rental includes a slip! Whether you choose to spend your time fishing for catfish or bass, or you simply unwind on the shores with a good picnic, you're sure to have a great time!
