Lilly Dale on Dale Hollow?

Has anyone ever camped here? This place has great reviews and it looks like a lot of sites on the water. Which is excatly what we're looking for next summer. Kinda wondering if we can swim right at our site? Unfortunately it only lets you book 6 months in advance. I like to be well prepared for a trip like this. Especially when we have another couple joining us from 700 miles away. Which brings another question. Do they have any buddy sites that might be connected? Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

You may wish to do some research on the community. It has its own type of following and it's not for some people. If you are looking to be in the region, KOA on Chautauqua Lake is outstanding. There are several great places in Erie, PA region too.

Been there many times as I only live 45 minutes away. It is a typical Corps of Engineers campground with a few paved sites and many crushed limestone sites most all with 30 & 50 amp and water, and good interior roads. As you mention there are many sites right on the water. Dale Hollow is a beautiful lake with the clearest water in TN. You can access the water anywhere but most use the sand beach at the dedicated swimming area. Many folks bring their boats and tie up right in front of their sites. Only 3 drawbacks to the campground IMHO, minimal shade due to the pine beetles killing all the old growth pines and the Corps having to replant trees which are not mature. The road into the campground is about 20 miles of narrow twist and wind with 2 switchbacks, very doable as long as you are not in a hurry see people there in everything from tents to the largest busses, plan on 30 minutes to get there after you turn off the main road (Highway 111). The last drawback is that there are only 2 stores near the campground, one on the way in about 5 miles from the campground on the main road or another at the marina at Lillydale Campground which is another Corps campground about 5 miles west of Lillydale. I do believe they have some buddy sites but not sure how many. The sites are close enough that you and your friends can be conveniently near enough but not in each others lap. You do have to book as early as possible as it fills up fast. If you have any specific questions feel free to PM me and I'll try and give you an answer. It is a very beautiful family place.
