Beautiful clear lake that has great fishing if you pay your dues. There are plenty of marinas for a variety of lodging needs.

This lake is where I want to be on a hot day in spring / summer or a cooler autumn day in fall. It is so clean that you have great visibility underwater. Being a shale bottom deep lake keeps the water clean and beautiful. Boat docks for the most part are clean, sale gas, food, and merchandise. Since the... More

Cabin 5 has a rather steep incline to the cabin that you traverse broken slabs of concrete, gravel and broken stairs. The bathroom has a shower that seems the handle to turn on off was on upside down, if you turn you will cause freezing cold or scalding hot water. Also, you can not dry off in the tiny shower...

We arrive at Dale Hollow Marina at 10:30 AM on Saturday of a holiday weekend (we are from out of town, 5.5 hours away). We had a pontoon and a double decker pontoon rented for our 14 boaters, ready for a day of fun on the lake. Upon our arrival, the marina staff let us know that the double decker's... More

But - I was very disappointed with the particular cabin we stayed in at East port marina! We (me,my husband, 13 yr son & 10 yr daughter) so excited when we got there. The cabins looked... More

My husband & I had never went before but our friends had been going there for many years(about 40 for the husband because he went with his parents as a teenager) with their family so they invited us to come with them this time! The husbands went out in the boat fishing while the wives stayed at the cottage relaxing,... More

Wisdom Marina is located at the perfect spot on Dale Hollow Lake. The Marina puts you right out on the main body. Location, Location and Location may be simple but sometimes the main attraction of a destination is simply the Location. The secluded spot up Illwill creek has a beautiful Blue Heron Nesting spot and in the early spring the... More
