The lake is very beautiful, and there must be fish in the lake, but I have not heard anyone brag about it..The fishing is free, they have a boat dock, restaurant and campground. The one good thing I have heard, its near Renfro Valley.

We didn't catch anything big either day that we were here, but sometimes they bite and sometimes they don't, not much you can do about it... We did catch a few Crappie and Bluegills, as well as one Yellow Perch and a Warmouth... The people who work here are extremely nice and accommodating. You can fish for free, and the... More

One of our day trips was bank fishing at Lake Linville...we met several locals and learned had a grand time. One fellow fisherman shared his thermos of coffee with us and we turned over our catch to him. The Lake itself was picturesque as the sun danced across it. We dined in the restaurant at the boat dock.

Having visit Lake Linville several times since I wrote the previous review, I realize it is a great to take your pontoon/boat, family or friends and enjoy a relaxing time. When I was there before we were just looking for a long-time place to put our RV to be near Renfro Valley and be near my grandson and family who... More

Not much to write about here, this lake don't have anything going for it. the campground is in a swampy field by the water with no shade trees at all. very primitive at least!! I have tried to fish here and have never caught anything worth keeping or to brag about, my suggestion is to keep traveling to lake Cumberland... More

The lake is pretty. In a nice neighborhood. Probably great fishing. RV park is not somewhere I would stay.

Lake Linville Campground was worse than horrible, did not stay there after a brief drive thru. Few electric hook ups. No water that I saw. No gravel on spots. No fire rings. Maybe 2 picnic tables if that. no grills. Goose dodo every where. Nasty but close to the lake :)
