From Nashville, 69 miles east on I-40, 17 miles north on TN 56, 23 miles north on TN 53 to Celina, follow signs.

Dale Hollow is well-known for its pristine qualities due to the forested shoreline and the high water quality of the lake. Visitors come to enjoy the lake and its many recreational opportunities: fishing, camping, scuba-diving, boating, and sightseeing. The pristine quality of the lake is important to the Dale Hollow National Fish Hatchery just below the dam, which produces 1.5 million trout annually.

Red Oak Ridge Trail

Located 8 miles north of Celina, Tennessee off highway 53, hosts 18 miles of beautiful and scenic trails developed for horseback riding. Beginning on a wooded ridgetop, riders can descend to follow the pristine Dale Hollow Shoreline. Seven loops provide for cutbacks to shorten or lengthen the trail. Eagles Bluff Overlook provides for one of the most spectacular vistas of Dale Hollow Lake. Hikers are welcome. A corral, storm shelter, and stalls are available. Free primitive camping permit required for overnight stays. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited and coggins papers required. Follow the signs toward Holly Creek Marina and Red Oak Ridge.

August of 1999, The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Dale Hollow was awarded $43,764 in grant dollars as part of the Recreation Trails Program (RTP). Funding for this grant award is provided through the Federal Recreation Trails Program under the Transportation Equity Act of the 21st Century. As part of the grant, 20% matching funds will be committed with 5% of the total project coming from non-federal sources. In partnership with the local Clay County Government and Parks and Recreation Board, Red Oak Ridge trail will undergo an extensive renovation to improve access, retard erosion, provide for drainage, control overuse areas, enhance signage and provide additional facilities. All projected improvements will be completed by September 30, 2002.
