We stayed at this lodge for 3 nights while taking a get away/hiking trip. We got the King Bed suite which comes with a refrigerator. The rooms are quite large and so are the bathrooms. No arguments over counter space in this one!! The staff is extremely friendly. The view from the room is so spectacular and I love having... More

We visited Dale Hollow Resort in early November. We had never stayed in a State Park Resort and were very impressed. The lodge is located on the lake away from the campgrounds and you have the feel of a private resort. We originally booked for 3 days but loved it so much we stayed an extra day. All the staff...

Came for a holiday weekend getaway. Stayed one night and left. The lodge common areas are clean. Our lodge room was clean but the furnishings, pastel wall color and artwork are quite dated. We opted for the Thanksgiving buffet for dinner at the onsite restaurant and arrived at 5:30 pm. Disappointed the food was dried out and picked over. We... More

We have been to Dale Hollow State Park three times. We love the area. The staff are very friendly. We didn't have a buffet the night we were there, but the food was still good. They were painting the outside of the building where are room was, but they let us change with no problem. The bed was very comfortable.... More

Needed a place to stay for a fishing trip on the Cumberland River. Perfect! Clean, comfortable, very peaceful place, enjoyed the dinner in an area with a great view. Nice crowd for dinner. Early to bed and out the door at 4 am.

The lodge exceeded my expectations, based on reviews of others. The setting on the lake is really beautiful. We loved our room (302) with a view of the lake.

Dale Hollow is tucked away in South Central KY and North Central TN. Great facilities and the view is the most beautiful in all of KY in my opinion. Don't miss it. Camping, lodging, mini cabins. They have it all. Take a see for yourself.
