The Corps of Engineers operates a very popular campground right beside the Obey, located only about four miles from Celina. The campground has about everything a camper could want. It stays filled to capacity during most of the vacation season.

It has dozens of camping spots, bathroom facilities, a fish-cleaning station, a laundry facility, and a walking and bike trail. In addition, it’s located right beside the national fish hatchery. Also, there’s the popular fishing stream that runs between the hatchery and the river.

“People come to the campground to fish,” said Paul Boyce, president of the Friends of Dale Hollow National Fish Hatchery Support group.

An outlet stream leading directly from the hatchery into the Obey River runs through the campground area.

“It’s one of the heaviest-fished streams in the state,” fish hatchery manager Andrew Currie said. “We stock the Obey every Friday. This little stream between the hatchery and the river sells more fishing license and trout stamps than any other one like it in Tennessee.”

A very popular kids’ fishing rodeo is held on the stream on Free Fishing Day in Tennessee, always held very early in June.
