We felt like we had the lake all to ourselves!! Truly a great trip for skiing!! The lake was placid and open. The marina is always worth a stop not only for gas, but great conversation with the clerk and ice cream!

Cave run is a great place to go to relax in the sun as get your rays on. There are so many place to go and things to do there.

We make the 2.5 drive to Cave Run multiple times a year. The water is extremely clean, doesn't stink, and the lake is rarely overly used. There's plenty of coves to retreat to and go swimming without having to be "in the way" of everyone...More

Was a great vacation! The lake is so clean! The day my kids were tubing it was like glass! We were able to kayak one evening after sunset. So nice! Scott marina was nice also.

The lake offers all sorts of entertainment. Rent a pontoon or a houseboat. Great fishing and fishing guides are available. Great camping and swimming sites are readily available. Frisbee golf and picnic area's are free at the dam. Walmart and Kroger's within ten minutes.

The lake was absolutely beautiful. No houses on the lake just nature and fish. We went wally fishing with a guide in the rain. Loved every minute if it. I would recommend renting a cabin getting a guide and cast 10,000 times to catch walley.

I can't help you there. Best to look up lodgings and call one of them. I am sure they could help.

I would go to the bait shop next to the lakeview motel. They are very friendly and they may know.
