We love living near Marrowbone Lake and don't visit often enough. But, then again, there are a ton of parks and lakes in Middle TN so what's not to love in the area?

I suppose it’s a good fishing spot. There were a lot of people there fishing. Not so much if you are looking for a park with a place to relax. You really can’t see the dam unless you walk down to it.

A great hidden treasure in Nashville only 20 minutes or so from downtown. It's a TWRA managed fishing lake with a bait shop and snacks sold on site. Great drive up just to see even if you don't fish.

We did not have any luck fishing, but we will be going back just for the beauty and peacefulness. Catching fish will just be a bonus the next trip.

This is a small lake you have to pay to fish on but well worth it. You can rent a boat also but fishing from the banks is easy. Love it and will go back soon.
