We had a beautiful waterfront site, with water & electric, as many are. The bathrooms & showers were clean & funtional. The roads into this out of the way park, are an experience in themselves, but no problem if you take your time, many hairpin curves, just watch out for the Crazy garbage truck driver, who nearly took us out on one of the 15 mph turns at over 50. This park should be rated at 10, but because the folks that have the current contract aren't real big on grounds maintenance, grass hasn't been mowed for at least 3-4 weeks, great for ticks & chiggers, also don't seem to be up on rules enforcement, as we observed teenagers swimming in unautorized areas, dogs not only Not on a 6 ft. leash, (one was on a 20ft leash), but also watched the attendant drive by one man with his dog not on a leash at all, and just wave at him. - bukhrn

This is a wonderful place. We had a lake front site and kept our boat there near us. Extra clean bathrooms and grounds. Dale Hollow Lake is famous for it's beautiful clear waters. You just can't fish during the day. There are lots of places to eat by boat and a nice marina nearby at Sunset. - ILoveLucy

This is a Corps of Engineer park on Dale Hollow Lake. It is a good drive from the closest town so make sure you take everything with you. There is a marina at Willow Grove about 4 miles away. This is a beautiful park with a great view of the lake. A lot of sites are in the open due to the beetles killing the trees a few years back. There is still some shady sites in the middle of the park. I will be back. Camp host are the nicest people you will meet. - Scott Elkins

Beautiful, remote campground on Dale Hollow Lake that is well-maintained. Only about 12 sites have 50 amp service. Nearest town is over 20 miles away, so take ample supplies when you go. About half the sites are shaded, and most are reasonably level. Lake swim area has clear water with sand/gravel bottom. Comfort stations are clean and accommodating. Enjoyed walleye and smallmouth bass fishing in the clear water lake. While campground was heavily occupied during weekends, occupancy rate during weekdays was only about 20%. - igor2brvn

Somewhat to very difficult severely twisty windy access road. I don't mind the road, even with a 40' RV, but, I certainly understand the problem. That said, we absolutely love this stunning, out of the way park. The pine beetles have taken their toll on some of the shade, but you can hardly envision this park with out going there. Great lake access and we go there as much as possible, at LEAST twice a year. I don't think any sites have sewers, dump station is convenient to get to though. A lot of the sites were, in the last year or two, were upgraded to 50 amp power pedestals. - djevanstn

This out-of-the-way park has a rustic charm and lots of trees. Campsites are close, but the park is small enough that you don't feel like you're in a crowd. Best part of the park was the host, who was more than amenable. He and others made sure my rig was level and situated to my liking. I'm a woman traveling alone, and the host checked in on me in a way that made me feel comfortable and secure. The surrounding area is beautiful, and I wish I could have stayed longer. Good wi-fi, too. - OmakMary

It was peaceful and away from all hustle and bustle. We had full hookups, clean water and a level space. The owners were very friendly and helpful. In fact, I ran out of propane in both of my tanks and the park owner took my tanks to town with him, had them filled, and when I returned to my RV, he had them both hooked up for me. I would recommend this place, in spite of it being 26 miles from where I had to do some business in Cookeville. - Don Self

One of the best kept secrets in Allons, TN! The hosts are wonderful! Why, one night the weather dropped to 50 degrees, and one of the owners asked if we needed blankets. The other owner helped my son perfect is badminton stroke while we relaxed during the evening. The trout farm is only 200 feet from the campground. Dale Hallow Lake Dam is 15 min. and Lilly Lake is onlly 20 min. from campground site. Price is quite a bargain, and it is away from all major traffic. Great family spot with a pavilion that houses many family games to play at night. - Mscamperreview

The campground overall was small, but well laid out with lots of space in each spot for equipment and larger campers. That said, getting into the spaces was a little interesting as many people when we were here, had more than one vehicle in their space, so the access road (one-way) was that much narrower.
Our spot (#1) was easy to get into, although the width of the driveway into the space made getting in the dark a little interesting. During daylight it would be a snap to back into. There were spaces that could accommodate larger campers (5th wheels, etc.) but getting backed in could be an issue if your rig was longer than about 30' Our spot was mostly level (only a little off side-to-side) but some of the other spots were not particularly level. Check the descriptions on the reservation site as they seem to be accurate.
The bathrooms were kept spotless while we were here, and they were in good condition. There was a nice laundry room as well (washer and dryer, coin op.), with a three-well sink for washing dishes. The electrical service was a little older, but in good condition, and the water pressure was good. The locations of the services was right at the edge of the pad so getting to them was a snap.
Dump station located at the exit: one hole only. Good condition, and very clean. Lots of space to maneuver, easy-in, easy-out.
Park staff were very friendly and accommodating: some of the best service on a holiday weekend that I've ever had. (Tenn. parks always seem to have great park staff.) The park had lots to do as well (SUP, kayak, canoe, and fishing boat rentals on the lake, sand volleyball, horseshoes, ping pong, etc.) as well as a large swimming pool.
Be advised that there is no wireless and no camp store, although there is a small gift shop at the park office. Check in was easy, as were reservations, and the park roads were in good shape with no local traffic to speak of. Firewood is available outside the park, but not inside. - WrongWayRandall

We stayed here from Thursday until Sunday. It is out in country and QUIET!!! The 1st night was great, but the 2nd night it was raining a bit and campground electricity was a bit iffy. The whole campground would shut down for a few and then come back on. The reason we knew was because campground would go completely black. Alot of sites are slight slopes. Ours was a deep hill to pull down into, but evened out when we set up. That and the electricity are the reasons we gave it a 9 instead of 10. We had a surge protector for our camper so no worries.The restrooms were standard state park as in older , but in clean working condition. The park was nice and the lake was a real nice smaller lake. People were fishing the banks and lots of picnic areas to choose from. We saw alot of wildlife in the park and it is real peaceful to say the least.There are lots of waterfalls and hiking to choose from within 45 min drive or so from park. Overall we will camp there again. We stayed in 21' travel trailer. - kycamper02

Reflects 25% senior discount. Beautiful state park in the hills of north central Tennessee. Follow the park directions coming in here. You do not want to come in on the TN136. There is a one lane bridge over the dam that no large vehicle can negotiate. Spaces are well spaced, however many are not level, so some research is important if you need a fairly level space. Park staff is active in planning activities; we were here during the Spring Rally and attended several professional presentations with live animals. There is a pool here but it was still closed when we were here. Park was quiet most of the time, especially at night. Electric was steady, water pressure is high @ 80PSI, we used a regulator, most sites have good drainage during rain. No sewer at the sites here and dump is a ways up the road. No wifi, but Verizon MiFi and phones worked well. Bathhouses were kept clean and stocked. There is a 5 mile trail here; we did not walk it while here because of recent rains. A county road cuts directly thru the park, so you have to be alert while walking on the roads. Many birds and wildflowers here to view, we also saw fox and turkey. The dam site itself is very pretty, with picnic areas and a small swinging bridge. Be sure to visit the Overton Lodge, just for the drive. There are 2 waterfalls on the drive that are worth seeing. The staff is friendly and helpful. The office has a nice gift store. We would not hesitate to stay here again. - Fixn2gocamp

79 sites with w/e, 16 pull thru, most with some type of shade. Several situated overlooking the Obey River and below the Dale Hollow Dam. Located adjacent to a large trout fish hatchery(tours welcome) with trout fishing allowed in the runoff waters from the hatchery. We camped here in a popup motorcycle camper. - mailman01

Beautiful campgrounds on the Obey River just below the Dale Hollow Dam. Trout fish hatchery adjoins the campground. Kids would love this and is interesting to adults as well. Campers were catching limits of trout from streams leading from the hatchery. Sites were level and well spaced. Loved this campground. - mailman01

Obey is located on Dale Hollow Lake only minutes south of Byrdstown TN on Tennessee Highway 111. All interior roads are paved, some sites are paved (19), all have picnic table and fire pit. 86 sites have water and electric. There is a dump station but some maneuvering is required.
We stayed in site 73 which was a pull in. It is directly on the lake with a great view next to the boat ramp . I would bet the ramp is busy during the summer. The grass needed mowing and our fire pit wasn't clean. Not the usual COE maintenance we have experienced. - Tom and Patty

We've been coming here in October for the past several years as the first stop on our annual road trip out through the US (we are from Ontario). In early October weekdays the park is virtually empty although it gets a little busier at weekends. The site is set out in loops with 7 or 8 sites per loop giving a good amount of privacy and nice outlooks over well kept grassed areas. Loop B has sewer and there may be another loop with FHU but not sure. Sites are concrete with a patio area and fire pit and some levelling may be required.
There are several washrooms with laundry (2 washers/2 dryers) at each one at $1 per load. Wifi has been the only bug this year as they have downgraded the system. We used to pay $15 for 2 weeks of Tengo Internet and it was speedy and sound. This year it is free and barely usable so we've not been able to use it for work. Went to Monticello and got a pre-paid AT & T package for the ipad instead.
Dale Hollow Lake is 2 miles and there are plenty of walking trails and a great golf course just a mile away within the park.
Apart from the Wifi issue this is a great spot and we'll be back again next year. - Bayers

This is a beautiful setting close to the Dale Hollow State Park Lodge and marina. Some of the vloopscare full hookups and others have water and electric only. Most sites are level and later out with 8 pads at each loop in a circular pattern. There are two playground areas and 3 restrooms with showers and laundry facilities. The lodge has a restaurant, small store at the park with limited items and there is a small convenience store a few miles away. If needed more supplies it is necessary to travel to one of the surrounding towns about 18 to 25 miles away. - NEOK

Several bath houses . The one we used was dated but clean. Select loops have full hookups. We stayed in B2. It was pretty level; had to level side to side a little. Not all sites are level and require some leveling. Sites are sort of short not too bad for us there. Class A's just have to park toad in the grass, which campground seemed OK with. Sites are in circles which is nice as you don't have a view of your neighbor's camper. You have your own view of woods or something else. Appears other loops have electric and water hookups if not full hookups. There are a couple playgrounds, 2 dump stations. Each site has a fire pit. Within the resort there is a Marina where you an rent boats also a Lodge where you can go eat meals as well. There is a campground pool. It wasn't in use but opens Memorial Day weekend. There is mini golf and a mini store to get ice, firewood and limited supplies. There is several hiking trails within the park if you only want to do one we suggest Eagles View best view in the park. The only complaint I have is there is not a Lake view but there is a local swimming hole east of the marina next to a boat ramp which is nice. Sites are asphalt with a asphalt patio area in the middle of the site. Very nice mature campground. - CmcDowell

Small, quiet, privately owned campground with easy access to many of the Cumberland Plateau's great features. Full hookups with good 50 amp electric and decent water pressure. The owners are great hosts. We would stay here again when we come back this way. - freckles1219

small mom and pop operation, well maintained. good 50 amp, let water run as it was quite rusty, plugged up my filter and had a swampy taste. slow wifi, no cell phone service either AT&T or Verizon. Satellite Tv ok,. Alvin C. York home was 6 miles away. Lots of winding roads to get there. - walt66
