We had driven through this area a couple years ago, and liked what we saw. Just finished up a 3 night visit and had a Great time. The accommodations, a lodge room facing the pool and pond was excellent, and one of the “cleanest” places we have ever stayed. The grounds were also kept up, clean, no trash, mowed and landscaping in great shape. Went fishing one afternoon with a local guide who works out of this resort, Billy Wheat. Great guy and you will have a good time. Good place to bring your camper and boat with you also. This location is very convenient to downtown Dayton, which has some good shops and restaurants. Staff at this resort are also very informative and helpful. General manager ,Nick was on site and working alongside the staff to make sure our stay was Better than we expected ! Give this place a try , you will not be disappointed!

We came here for a company partial post covid get together where we could be outside and be together. The people here are awesome, we stayed in the cabin standard and duplex lodges and those were awesome too! There is a great pool pavilion area we had a big cookout at, and there is gas fire rings in front of each group of lodges that we spent a lot time in the evenings at. There are golf carts and a mini putt-putt, plus the marina has boats and docks. The general store is well stocked and also has great pizza. Overall we had a wonderful time, this place is just the kind of place to unwind and forget about all of the craziness in the world.

In all honestly, the resort is beautiful, and the pool is great, but the long-term sites are very close together and you pay $600 per month plus electric. In addition, be careful if you sign a lease for a long- term RV site at Blue Water. Barron is no longer the manager there and the new Manager, Nick, told us we had to leave the week before July 4th, and would not give us a reason, after only a month of staying there. We are building a house and had nowhere else to go, especially at that time. Both my husband and I spoke to Nick individually multiple times and he would NOT give us a reason after we begged him to multiple times. When I told him we had a signed lease until November, he said it did not matter because it was private property and that we could sue if we wanted to. To this day, we have not been told why we were told we had to leave. Oh, and he refunded the ENTIRE month of June and didn't have us pay any electric from May 15 until we left on July 5th. We must have done something so bad that they would refund us the entire month! Just warning others as well. The resort, the sweet ladies in the office, and the owners are amazing, but they do not "manage" this place. This guy, Nick, picks and chooses who he wants there and had no remorse or care that we were about to uproot our 8 year old, who had made great friends there after a year of not being around other kids during the Pandemic. Don't get me wrong, we are good now and I truly believe everything happens for a reason, but this was not justifiable or good business at all.

We love Blue Water! We look forward to every single trip here. My boys love fishing lake chickamauga and it’s close enough for a day trip to Chattanooga for the girls! Office staff are very friendly and helpful. Park is absolutely flawless!

As the title says great location to the lake, the units are extremely clean and the staff is great. Stayed there two times and have not been disappointed. Safe quiet area. You can park your boat at your door and electric is available for charging. Store on site for basic needs. The staff is extremely helpful and will deal with any of your needs. Rachel is the best for guest services. It's well worth the money.
