East Port Marina is the Place to Go.

If you're headed to Dale Hollow lake to rent a houseboat, you need to look no further than at East Port Marina. These folks know how to do things right. I think we made phone... read more

Tried on 3 separate occasions to find this establishment open. Although the posted hours said '7 days/week' we found them closed on two consecutive Mondays. On our 3rd visit, a Wednesday, I mentioned the two closed Mondays. Later, who I discovered to be the manager said that the hours were subject to change. No further explanation or apology for missing... More

If you're headed to Dale Hollow lake to rent a houseboat, you need to look no further than at East Port Marina. These folks know how to do things right. I think we made phone calls at least once a week for a year asking different questions, and about every other day the month of our trip. They never got... More

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

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

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
