We are located on beautiful Cordell Hull Lake, about
an hours drive from Nashville. Cordell Hull Lake is 64
miles long with over 300 miles of shoreline, offering
all types of water sports activity. We offer a laidback
and relaxed atmosphere, with fantastic fishing and
spectacular scenery. There is nothing "defeated"
about this quaint, well-maintained, clean, and
friendly area. You should come see for yourself.
