Dale Hollow Dam and Lake was completed in 1943. Although the dam was built for flood control and power generation, it has now become a recreational oasis for more than 3 million visitors each year. Operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the dam and campground are located on the Obey River, about 3 miles east of Celina, Tennessee. 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 tailwater below Dale Hollow Dam is known for excellent cold water rainbow and brown trout fishing. Dale Hollow Dam Campground features 78 campsites and one large group picnic shelter. Electric hookups, drinking water, flush toilets and a dump station all create a comfortable camping experience. Information can be found and reservations can be made online at http://www.recreation.gov.
