Experience Dale Hollow Lake with a vacation rental

Not small by any measure, Dale Hollow Lake boasts an astonishing 620 miles of shimmering shoreline that lends itself to myriad recreational activities. It is also one of the oldest artificial lakes in Kentucky. Constructed by the Corps of Engineers who dammed the Obey River, the lake today is ensconced by virginal forests and water teeming with fish. Well-marked mountain bike trails will rejuvenate your senses along with the exhilarating views. Dale Hollow Lake is an ideal getaway for families, groups of friends, and independent travelers. Enjoy it with a vacation rental.

Beautiful vacation properties for everyone

Vacation rentals around the lake will give you immediate access to fishing points. The fish at this lake are known to bite all year long which is good news for newbie anglers. Many rentals are pet-friendly, and fitted with lake-facing balconies. Those near Dale Hollow Marina and Safe Harbor Eagle Cove offer easy access to boat ramps where pontoon boats and jet skis can be rented. Rentals nestled in the woods have their own charm – consider them too.

Vacations in Dale Hollow Lake

Waterside recreation at Dale Hollow Lake

Fish preparations and more!

There's a whole lot of waterside recreation for the water babies. Swimming and fishing are top choices, and while you can do these anywhere, it's best to stick to designated areas. Marinas rent out boats so you can explore the lake at your own pace - while at it, don't forget to drop some bait and wear sunscreen. Other possible activities include jet-skiing, or kayaking down the Wolf and Obey Rivers taking in the sights and sounds from a noiseless watercraft.

Fresh food to keep you in good spirits

Pickett County, the gateway to the Dale Hollow Lake region has tons of family-owned restaurants who'll provide you much-needed sustenance for your exploring. Steel Coop near the Obey River Recreation Area serves decent seafood and steaks, and the lake views are stunning. It’s a 2-minute walk from the Byrdstown Highway. Also close to the lake is The Fork, run by a lovely couple - their portions are generous and the prices fair. Bobcat Den in Byrdstown serves sumptuous grilled pork tenderloin and jumbo shrimp while the Southern Dream Bakery, also in Byrdstown, takes care of sugar cravings with their yummy cupcake shakes.

Travelers and activities

Multi-purpose trails for outdoor diversions

The trails at Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park offer a full complement of activities from mountain biking to horseback riding and hiking. The best part is that no motorized vehicles are allowed making it super safe for families with young children. Expect some interesting sights as most trails follow the old logging routes and tend to run along the ridge tops. Another mention-worthy activity is the Motorcycle Ride Trail which starts at the park then weaving its way through the glorious Cumberland Valley.

A lake region rich in history

Outdoor recreation aside, Dale Hollow Lake and its surroundings are rich in history. The Cordell Hull Birthplace & Museum State Park houses riveting mementos including the Nobel Prize won by Hull. A ride east will get you to Historic Rugby where time stands still. Founded in 1880 by British author Thomas Hughes, the village exudes Victorian charm thanks to its 20 odd original buildings. Guided tours are a good idea here. The Sergeant Alvin C. York State Historic Park meanwhile pays homage to this beloved WWI hero. Situated by the Wolf River, visitors can stroll through York’s family home and farmland.
