All of our cottages are well equipped with dishes, tableware, cooking utensils, electric toasters and coffee makers, pillows and blankets, deck chairs and LP gas grills. Satellite and DVD TV are available in each cottage. It’s best to bring copies of your DVDs. Please bring your own towels, tea towels and dish clothes, pot holders, etc. We provide the bed linen for each bed (sheets, pillow cases and blankets.) To make your planning easier, you can review an inventory list for the Family Cottage and King Cottage here on this web site. You may want to bring a few outside games as we do not have any play ground facilities. While we have no swimming at the Resort proper, you may enjoy any number of your own private swimming beaches along Dale Hollow's enchanting shoreline. Kayaks and Paddle boats are available for rental for your families enjoyment. Water boots or old sneakers are great for swimmers. Snorkels, masks and fins open the underwater world.You may see harmless fresh water jelly fish or mysterious corked bottles and lots of friendly fish who watch your every move.

Dale Hollow Lake Eagle Cam

The Dale Hollow Lake Marina Association's Eagle Cam Website is now up and running.  Please visit our site at

The Dale Hollow Lake Marina Operator’s Association in cooperation with the Friends of Dale Hollow Lake are seeking support to install a Live High Definition Camera on one of Dale Hollow Lake’s American Bald Eagle’s Nest. The Marina Association has matched the first $5,000.00 raised to push this effort half way toward the ultimate goal of $20,000.00. The funding will be used to install electric service and fiber optic service to the camera which will be mounted high above Dale Hollow Lake overlooking one of the lake’s active American Bald Eagle’s Nests. The camera will be installed by one of this project’s strongest supporters, Twin Lakes Telephone Cooperative and will provide 24/7\ Live Video feeds from a nest that has produced over 12 baby eagles in the past six years. A Dale Hollow Lake American Bald Eagle Web-Site will be produced where interested viewers can watch the various stages of the eagle’s life such as nest building, egg laying, egg hatching, and eagle fledging. This project is a cooperative, non-profit educational opportunity for the Upper Cumberland and Dale Hollow Lake Region. The camera will be installed and tested in late summer of 2016.
