Thank you for reading this Family Adventure Guide! This one is all about the marinas on Tims Ford Lake.
If you are planning a day trip to the lake, I recommend calling ahead to one of the local marina and renting a pontoon for a day. All four marinas are a close enough drive from Nashville for a day trip. There isn’t much that makes me happier than cruising around the lake with my family, music playing, eating some good snacks and drinking my lemonade. That is the lake life!
I have the links to all four websites listed at the bottom of this post, so you can check the latest pricing. Some marinas offer half day rentals, discounted fall prices, and discounted weekday prices as well. So keep an eye for that, when comparing. Renting kayaks, canoes, and paddle boards is an option at a few of the marinas as well. Call ahead of time, as many of the marina’s restaurants and amenities are seasonal.
Here are a list of the four marinas on the lake, a little about them and my favorite reason for a visit to each.
- Lakeview Marina. This one is located in the state park, and the closest marina to our home. It has best selection of ice-cream, and because of that, our most visited marina. Our little one’s favorite for sure!
- Tims Ford Marina. This is a larger marina than some of the others, and also close to our home. There is a casual restaurant with outdoor seating, and plenty of pontoons for rental.
- Holiday Landing. We love boating over to this marina for lunch at the Blue Gill. The restaurant looks like a dive, but the menu is really good … I get the fish tacos! One odd thing is all their dining tables (except for one!) are high tops, and difficult to eat with children.
- Twins Creek Marina. This is the newest marina on the lake, and has a resort feel to it. I was so excited to see this marina open, it was exactly what was missing on the lake. I’ve been hearing that they are working on opening a hotel on the property! I really believe this is about to be an up and coming vacation destination for Nashville families. Check their event schedule for live music, it’s such a fun place.
