    Default Information About Lakes in your area!

    OK, here is what I need.

    1. Any general info about the lake. A couple paragraphs would be nice.
    2. Names of the launch ramps. Actually LAT LONG in decimal form or a Google Earth overlay would be nice, but I am willing to do some of the research on my own here for the greater good.
    3. Same as above, but surrounding recommended lodging, gas, food.

    Imagine that I am trying to collect information for a travel guide to the area. In reality this is all going in the Performance Boats Wiki.

    Here is the example for Lake Powell

    http://www.performanceboats.com/html...le=Lake_Powell

    Not filled in yet, but I think you will get the idea. Also I will reiterate. The Wiki is not a good place to play around unless you hate your user name here and you wanted to be banned for life. Keep it serious over there.

    Dale Hollow Lake Information


    Dale Hollow Lake is located in Tennessee and Kentucky and is surrounded by the Tennessee Counties of Clay, Overton, and Picket; and two Kentucky Counties of Clinton and Cumberland. The larger part of the lake is located in Tennessee.

    The construction of Dale Hollow Lake was completed in 1943 for the purpose of flood control. In 1948, 1949, and 1953 power generating units were added by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the purpose of power generation. Dale Hollow power generation plant is sufficient to supply a city of 45,000 people with electricity. The dam and power plant are located approximately three miles east of Celina, Tennessee.

    Dale Hollow Lake consists of 27,700 acres of lake surface area, and 24,842 acres of surrounding land, totalling 52,542 acres and is one of the cleaner lakes in the United States. The lake has 620 miles of shoreline.

    The average water temperatures of Dale Hollow Lake range from 45-80 degrees. The deepest area of the lake is in the main channel near the dam totalling 130 feet.

    Dale Hollow Lake is one of the fewer lakes in Tennessee and our nation that provide an unobstructed view of nature and natural beauty at its best due to the restrictions of private boat docks and the removal of trees from the shorelines.

    The quality of the water in Dale Hollow Lake is important for the Dale Hollow National Fish Hatchery located below the dam. The hatchery is the largest federal trout hatchery east of the Mississippi River, producing 1.5 million trout per year, totalling 300,000 pounds. These trout are distributed between Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. While visiting Dale Hollow Lake the hatchery offers access to visitors from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Located on Dale Hollow Lake are two famous historical sites. The home place of Sergeant Alvin C. York, the famous WW1 hero, is located in Pall Mall, Tennessee. The other is the birthplace of Cordell Hull which is located near Byrdstown, Tennessee. Cordell Hull was a great statesman and is remembered as a recipient of the Nobel Prize and the Father of the United Nations.

    Dale Hollow Lake is a popular wintering area for the Bald Eagle, our American symbol. These beautiful birds can generally be observed from mid-December to mid-February.

    Dale Hollow Lake attracts millions of visitors per year and offers many activities including fishing, boating, skiing, camping, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and much more. The mild climate and long recreation season make this and other Tennessee Lakes popular vacation spots. Scuba diving is a popular sport on Dale Hollow lake; divers are thrilled with the absence of trash and other debris in the lake



    I use the Obey river state park ramp $4 per day use fee that includes a swimming area. there is also camping available. If you have a tripple axle trailer or a boat over 28' you should consider using one of Sunset Marina's ramps @ $5 launch fee (same entry off of sr42/111)

    There are 15 marinas and resorts scattered from one end to the lake to the other. Some geared more for fishing and some for watersports, most have houseboats.

    Heres a great link Center Hill Lake. It ranks right up there with Dale Hollow as one of the two cleanest, clearest and just great TN lakes out there. Center Hill is only about 45 minutes East of Nashville, about the same from where I am at in Murfreesboro. Very Central. The 7 Public launch ramps are easliy accessable to all boats. I use Ragland Bottom. It is in the middle of the lake, it has the best access for bigger trailers and it has a sandy shore. One of the local hang outs (where we tie up) is just 3-5 minutes down the lake. It is right at the east end of the Slygo bridge accross from the Slygo Marina. It is a 40 foot cliff that everyone jumps from and just hangs out.

    Default Lots, boating, and the people..

    Mr admin,

    I agree with the sentiment here so far, we use Center Hill lake basicly because of the water, view and the close proximity to our home. But that being said there are many many nice boating areas ( 5 within 1 hour ) that are all truely spectacular. This area is different because we just dont have that much traffic except for weekends. I have boated on dale hollow during the week and on the NE side we didint see another boat for four hours or more. Center hill is like that as well. Lake cumberland is about 90 or so miles so I havent explored it yet. But old hickory, percy priest , cumberland river , chigamauga lake in chaqttanooga, the tn river are all a blast for clean family fun. No we dont have a "sandbar" but I am not sure that is what my family would enjoy anyway. Lake lots go from 100k to 500k per acre on the water near chattanooga. and up on Center hill 50-100k. That is alot for the money. I grew up on the lake in chattanooga, and you will meet some really nice folks boating around the Tn area. Good times.... And when it gets a little warmer. Let one of us know. I am always willing to be a "tour guide" and will provide you with a boat, gas and a bologna sandwhich. We will show you how the other half live , it is definetely a good place to boat. Hope to see you on the water.

    Nickajack Lake

    Chickamauga Lake

    Both are in the City of Chattanooga. Nickajack actually runs through Downtown Chattanooga.

    Default Im confused

    I may be way off, on the prices, but I can only tell you what I have seen from my family, my family's friends and last year we looked at lots in soddy daisy and Oltewah.

    I can tell you what the property on Waconda point in Harrison is worth because I just had a conversation with my parents about it last week.

    Granted to get waterfront property in Downtown Chattanooga may be quite different but I would assume that nobody would do that anyway.I would still assume that below chattanooga to Nickajack you can still get a 1/2 to an acre lot for 250-+++. maybe???

    Now what i was speaking of is ground only, not a house on that ground.

    My dad paid 16k for his 2 1/2 acre lot in 1971. Care to guess what it is worth now? He lives two doors down from Peyton M.

    I know this if you want it you better get it now, it only goes up.

    Frank when you gonna move off the MTN. and get you a lake lot?

    I guess you are in the Biz now, what are lots going for?

    Like I said, I may be way off. I just did a search on lakefront property in Chattanooga and came up with stuff from 150K up to 2.2 m, its out there it just depends on where and how big.

    I think Mr. Admin needs to hop on down and take a look. If you need a particular lake let one of us know, I think we are all proud of our lakes here in TN. I am by no means an exspert on any paricular one but I have some buddies who fish/guide and they know most of the lakes better than theTWRA guys. Good luck,come see us.

    Your Dad's place on Waconda is priceless. If there were any home sites only on Waconda I'm guessing they would start at $750K.

    I"ve not seen anything under $199,000. I'd like to see it if there is. I'm guessing summer water only or waaaaaaay out in Birchwood. Help a brotha out man.

    Yes, I'm in "The Business" now but I sell a very different product than just lake front property. Our waterfront home sites start at $450K.

    Admin,

    I would be glad to go and visit Center Hill for you and bring back a full report if you want to send me and my family. Nothing too expensive. Just airfare and hotel.
