The Dale Hollow Reservoir is situated on the Kentucky/Tennessee border. The lake is formed by the damming of the Obey River. It is also the site of Dale Hollow Lake State Park on the north side of the lake, in Kentucky.

The lake's name originated from William Dale, a government surveyor, settling originally in Willow Grove. Mr. Dale bought his first 449 acres of land which he turned into a farm.The farm eventually grew into a plantation known as Dale Hollow. The dam was started in 1942; The waters of the lake ultimately covered both the farm and Willow Grove.The project was designed and completed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in 1943, making the lake the oldest artificial lake in Kentucky. Dale Hollow Dam is used to supply power to the surrounding countryside.

The lake is also frequently used for recreation. Water sports are popular, including water skiing, wakeboarding, and tubing which are regularly seen, but the main recreational use is fishing. Dale Hollow is a choice location for smallmouth bass fishing, currently holding the world record for the largest smallmouth bass ever caught. The lake and surrounding rivers also contain other species such as largemouth bass, crappie, muskellunge, walleye, catfish, gar, and trout.
