We stayed 2 nights at the resort and enjoyed both tremendously. The facility offers a restaurant with off the menu and buffet which was so convenient after coming in for the day. The room was large and offered a patio/balcony to sit and watch the deer and other wildlife. Plenty of hot water but the towels were a little scratchy.... More

We have stayed at this resort a few times as we want access to the Dale Hallow St. Park marina where the boats are put in. This hotel/lodge has nice rooms, some with very pretty views overlooking the lake. It's clean, they serve food (though we did not eat this year) and the park is very pretty. They also have... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time. The room was very clean and had a great view of the lake. The food was good in the dining room (mashed potatoes and gravy and lemonade it a MUST)!! The lake is awesome and very clear. Will be going back again for sure!

The setting is gorgeous overlooking the beautiful Dale Hollow Lake. Truly a great spot. The rooms are clean and comfortable. There are so many options from just relaxing and taking in the view to horseback riding, trails, swimming, boating, and more. I will return.

We love going to state parks! This was our first time at this resort. We arrived early, but were told on the phone we could hang out at the pool till our room was ready. To our pleasant surprise, we were able to get in our room early and change for the pool. Everyone we encountered from front desk, wait... More

When booking, spring the extra $20 for a lake view. The views are breathtaking. Clean room, great and friendly employees. The restaurant at the lodge was good too. An omelet that I got could have easily fed two people. One small complaint. The rooms are non smoking but you can smoke on your balcony. The second hand smoke wafts into... More

We had a great weekend of boating on the beautiful lake. We had 2 rooms and for a holiday weekend the rates were excellent. Our rooms were spotlessly clean, roomy and fairly modern by state park standards. The front desk staff are very pleasant and helpful. Our kids loved the breakfast and dinner buffets. The waitstaff are charming and very... More

The place is very nice but is located in the heart of backwoods land! We arrived for a NYE celebration. Like going back in time 50 years! Locals running it. Very against drinking and partying. Don't get me wrong. We weren't causing trouble, however, they were only there to collect our money for lodging and nothing else. We drove four... More

Our family of 8 stayed at the lodge and were given rooms on the 3rd floor of Oak #2. Oak #2 has only a forest view while Oak #1 has the view of the lake and Trooper Island and Tennessee as far as the eye can see. Our room had no microwave therefore no way to heat our prepared food... More
