Quiet

Dyers Creek Boat Ramp and Day Use Area was very quiet and secluded.

There are reservable pavilions, a playground and volleyball court and plenty of lake front to fish on. There are also several single table picnic sites.

Quiet, secluded and peaceful. There was only one other vehicle in the area while we were there, they were fishing.

The easiest way to find Dyer Creek is take Rt 76 outside Dover, Tn to Dyer Creek Boat Dock Rd.
