    Hi all

    I recently moved to Nashville this past summer from Kentucky and spent just about every weekend on the water here in TN. I’m hoping to meet some new people that love being on the lake as much as I do in their free time. I’d like to plan a gathering to Old Hickory Lake just outside Nashville (15 minutes from downtown) in the spring of 2018. If I can get some traction on this thread we can throw out some dates. Water gets comfortable down here by Memorial Day weekend easily. There’s a great spot on the lake called “2 foot cove” that you can anchor down and walk from boat to boat. It’s very sandy on your feet and only about 3-5 deep in a very large space. It’s filled with boaters every weekend and a great spot to have some fun. Here’s a photos of the cove on a random summer weekend this year. Hope there’s a few TN/Nashville boaters out there looking to meet up!

    I used to live 1 mile north of 2 foot on the Hendersonville side, great memories. A couple cool spots for the group to check out (in addition to the marinas with live music)...
    Cliff jumping, just south of two foot, on the same shore, look for a 20'ish rock ledge and rope to climb up. Be safe!
    Boat trip through the lock (call to get barge schedule so you don't wait forever) to downtown and tie up at one of the docks (both shores, but stadium side usually less busy).

    Hey David,

    I am relatively new to the area. Moved up from Chattanooga. I am boatless, but looking at buying over the winter or in the spring. I have not been on Old Hickory or Percy Priest yet, but look forward to exploring them in the coming year. Also...Dale Hollow, Norris Lake, Chickamauga Lake. Going through the river gorge on Nickajack in about 2 weeks will be beautiful.

    That's a sweet cove and hope you can get a gathering going. Welcome to the forum!

    Feel free to reach out to me anytime to show you around Old Hickory! I have only been on Percy twice and I’ve stuck to Old Hickory because of the party cove and the proximity of my boat barn to the ramp.
    I’ve spent a lot of time on Dale Hollow as well Lake Cumberland. Highly recommended the poker run at Lake Cumberland (my profile picture). It’s always the weekend after Memorial Day weekend.
