COE and State Parks with boat rentals

Years ago I went camping to fish. Unless the camp site was on the water, it was not acceptable. I typically pulled a boat and a friend took his TT; later I had a conversion van for sleeping and the boat was all I needed.

Now older with a Class A and Toad, I cannot take a boat. Although it's no longer all about the fishing, I still want to hit the crappies hard in the spring. What COE or state parks have weekly or monthly boat rentals nearby. I know that's a lot of parks, so let's start in the Tennessee Valley area - MS, TN, KY. Cross the Mississippi into AR and MO also.

Loads of information here, just figure out where you want to fish

Federal recreation, camping and tour reservation information - Recreation.gov

I've looked at the various websites. They say little of anything about boat rentals.

Hoping someone who has actually rented a boat at or near one of the COE parks will respond.

Dog Creek Campground on Nolin River Lake near Cub Run, KY is a nice spot, there's a marine nearby that rents boats to people in the park.

Thank you, that is the type info I'm looking for. Park looks nice. Love the waterfront sites. Only negative is the lack of showers. Without a shower house, I find it difficult to stay for over a week.

Dog Creek has showers, or had anyways. If they don't now, Nolin Lake State Park a few miles away does. Move over there for a day once a week.
