We rented a double decker pontoon boat from Eastport Marina and had a great day on the water, it rained off and on and we went in early because a storm came in, but we had a great time. The kids and I enjoyed going down the slide into the lake and swimming. We took lunch with us, cooked hotdogs... More

I recently visited Dale Hollow Lake campground for the first time with my family and another couple. Lets start with the things to consider: 1) Park is NOT bike friendly. There are lots of up hills which make it very hard to ride a bike, specially for young kids. 2)The campground was infected with little brown bugs (looks like fleas).... More

I have been coming to Dale Hollow Lake for the last 35 years and it's a summer trip I always look forward too. Such beautiful scenery and the water is so clear. It's great to go cruising all day and stop off at the different marina's to look around and shop or get a treat. We especially like Willow Grove... More

I recently visited dale hallow lake for the first time with my family and three others. We rented two houseboats from East Point Marina. The boats were beautiful and the marina had friendly, helpful staff. The lake was beautiful, especially the clear emerald water. We had a blast swimming and jumping in the water. It was tough to leave such... More

Just returned from 3 day camping trip with family at Dale Hollow Dam Site in Celina Tn. First experience staying at a Corps of Engineers campground. The camp sites were large, flat, and had water and electric at each site. The campground was quiet, well mowed, and the campers friendly. You better make reservations because it's a popular fishing spot... More

Be very careful doing any business at this marina. They will nickel and dime you and try to charge you for things that they should not.
