Welcome to Dale Hollow Lake

The Nashville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers welcomes you to Dale Hollow Lake. Dale Hollow is a vacation destination that borders the Tennessee-Kentucky state line and each year the lake provides recreational opportunities to millions of visitors. Surrounded by a thick expanse of forest, the clear blue lake creates a stunning scenic backdrop for a variety of water and land recreational activities.  The temperate climate and relatively long recreation season, allows visitors to have many opportunities to fish, hunt, camp, picnic, boat, canoe, hike, scuba dive, ride horseback, and enjoy the great outdoors.

Dale Hollow Lake belongs to you.  Treat your lake and surrounding area with respect by keeping it clean and attractive.  Enjoy yourself, practice water safety, and have a safe visit.  Return often!

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announces changes in recreation day use fees beginning Jan. 1, 2016
Thursday, February 11, 2016

USACE conducted a review of its fee structure earlier this year and determined that fee changes are needed to ensure USACE fees remain comparable and fair to those charged by other local providers for similar facilities and services.

The minimum day use fees beginning in January will be as follows:

 ·         $5.00 will be charged per private non-commercial vehicle.

 ·         $2.00 per adult for walk-in or bike-in.

 ·         $20.00 will be charged per bus or commercial vehicle.

 ·         Children under the age of 16 are not charged a day use fee.

Payment of the day use fee entitles the user to launch a boat or use any developed swimming beach at a USACE-operated recreation area for that day. For Dale Hollow Lake, this includes Lillydale Day Use, Pleasant Grove Day Use, and Obey River Day Use.

 A USACE annual day use pass may be purchased for $40, which permits the holder and accompanying passengers the daily use of facilities managed by USACE for one calendar year. The public will also be able to obtain Interagency America the Beautiful Passes.  Bearers of the America the Beautiful Passes receive free day use entry when the pass is displayed.  For more information, see the Passes section of this website.
