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

We caught and release 45 to 50 Small Mouth Bass. 25 would have been trophy fish any place except Dale Hollow. One day... 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.

I have been to the lake several times over the past few years out fishing with a local guide John Davis. He has a great knowledge of the lake and some beautiful lake view cabins. Didn't catch any monsters this year but we did well. Love the tradition and beauty of the lake.

We have went to Dale Hollow about 5 times in the past 7 years. and have a blast. We always rent a houseboat from Hendricks Creek Resort. They have several options for most budgets. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. The lake is wonder to swim and just relax. Houseboats have slides on them which is always fun.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Beary Nice cabin. I paid for two nights as it was a last minute birthday surprise getaway for my husband. This was a very bad idea! This place is in the middle of NOWHERE! The cabin was gorgeous and clean, but we had very bad experiences here! First of all, this place is... More

When we visited the water was colder than average. We didn't catch fish until day 7. Was very disappointed with trip over all.

A great place to rent a houseboat and enjoy the pristine waters of Dale Hollow Lake. 650 miles of shoreline, 61 miles long. 15 marina's to rent houseboats or cabins. Very affordable
