    A little more specific than the travel thread and I found no other thread on the topic. Please feel free to share any and all info about popular Lake destinations.

    That said, my buddies and I are trying to decide between getting a houseboat on Cumberland (KY) or just renting a place at Norris (TN). We’ve done Burton (Saban’s Lake) a few times, but my buddy sold his place down there and that drive is just too fucking much hungover on the way home.

    Has anyone gotten a houseboat on Cumberland before? We’ve got the boat and jetski covered, just need lodging and to know if we’re better off at a busier lake like Norris. I’ve heard that houseboats are really the main option if you want easy water access. Feels like six of us could get sick of it, but maybe not. Help. Thanks.

    Did it like 10 years ago. We drove around, seemingly encountered no other boats / groups of people except one. We rolled up on a group of a few boats and they looked at us like we were insane. So we backed that big bitch up and got the hell out of there.

    But other than that, we got shitfaced and had fun. We somehow ran out of gas early and had to get a fill-up. Oh, and one night we basically forgot to seal up the cabin and woke up to like an Amazon level of bugs in there.

    So yeah. That was a trip.

    Hate groups are alive and well in Cumberland area, so make sure you bring Farva.

    Did you just rent a boat from the State Park or whatever? If you have another company, shoot me the website when you get a chance.

    We did Cumberland like 15 years ago. Had two boats between a huge group. It was a blast, although I don't remember details except that it was important to take enough supplies so you don't have to dock and re-supply.

    Love beaches, but barely spend any time in the ocean/gulf. Being able to just chill in the lake on a float/noodle and drink is one of my favorite things in life.

    I’m pretty over the top about packing, so that shouldn’t be a problem.

    Exactly, floating in shitty tasting salt water while constantly being rocked around by incoming waves, sucks compared to a lake
    I've never understood the people that prefer shitty beaches to lakes

    I get the atmosphere, the look, smell, scenery, relaxed atmosphere of beaches, but even taking all that into account, give me a cove for our group, a few boats tied together, and enough beer/food to last all day. Toss in watercrafts and tubing/skiing/surfing — I’m sold.

    Spontaneous Cumbustion , you’re an avid Norris-er. Have you ever Cumberlanded? Should we even bother or just do Norris?

    Ive never been to Cumberland but I’ve heard it’s a lot more crowded and rowdier then Norris.

    I don’t think so as you can buy beer in Jacksboro when you get off 75. But that’s a 15-30 minute drive from the lake depending on where your house is. So we just make sure to bring plenty of alcohol for the weekend.

    Don’t believe so, simply because I know I’ve had beers at about every marina I’ve been to. Deerfield has a Tiki Bar, too.

    Well, this Cumberland trip never happened, but whatever. Going with my wife’s side of the family to this spot for a week. Stayed here a couple years ago and it was awesome:
