My wife and I have visited Dale Hollow Lake State Park on a number of occasions and always stay in the lodge. Rooms are basic, but have a balcony facing the lake-side of the buildings. The rooms are serviced daily. Because of the rural setting, bugs and critters are a given. Nevertheless, the park serves as a wonderful getaway.
WiFi is available. C-phone service is iffy. While a tower is on site, there is no AT&T service in the park.
Families head for the outdoor pool or find a number of other things to pass time. Dale Hollow offers one of the best freshwater lakes for fishing in the eastern US. Camping sites, cabins, a marina, hiking trails, horseback riding and a golf course are included in the park complex. Park programs and entertainment may be scheduled.
The resort restaurant serves up a variety of foods that tends to be basic—definitely not gourmet—and often mediocre. There are no other restaurants in the immediate area. The location of the resort is in a dry county, i.e. no “legal” alcohol to be found; so, ordering wine or beer with dinner is not an option.
While service can be slow, the staff is friendly and the scenery is beautiful. This is an area of Kentucky that draws us back from time to time.
