We rented a house for memorial weekend on Dale Hollow Lake. Beautiful area. I like it better than Cumberland. Easy to get around. Restaurants to choose from at different points on the lake. Enjoyed the coves for kayaking.

Rented one of their two 64' houseboats for five days over Labor Day Weekend 2016, and was satisfied with both the boat and the marina. It is necessary to understand what to expect to avoid any disappointment. First the good: The marina staff was VERY friendly, professional, and accommodating. I could offer many examples. It is a "mom & pop"... More

We rented the Stardust for seven days! The boat was beautiful but had many things on it that did not work, for such an amazing boat you would think they would take more care in fixing issues, the stereo on the upper deck did not work as well as the rope lighting, the stereo downstairs would not come in on...

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
