Hales Bar Marina Resort

The marina and resort are geared toward RV and Cabin Cruiser Nomads. One might call it interesting, another reviewer says "It’s one of those gritty all American kind of places that can really be what you make of it". Most regular camp attendees have stayed at the marina. The obvious reason to stay here is that it's near enough to the airport to be attractive and not located at a highway exit. 
  • Some but not all units are pet friendly. 
  • Internet availability is essentially nonexistent.
  • Mobile phone service is pretty bad.
Call (423) 942-9000 or Contact 

Note: The primary reason we usually stay here is so that our group can have a meeting place close to the airport, we rent the large "House on the hill" and host meetings and social nights at Hales Bar.
