Things to Do on Tims Ford Lake

  • Posted on

Boat Rentals 
The best activities are right on the water, so head over to one of four marinas on Tims Ford Lake to rent a pontoon. Tims Ford Marina is the largest marina with plenty of pontoon rentals and is ideally located in the middle of the lake, nearest to Lakefront Landing. Lakeview Marina is in Tims Ford State Park and is the only marina offering overnight rentals. Twin Creeks marina is the newest, with usually the most rental availability. We also have a partner who offers weekly pontoon rentals directly from our dock! In peak season, advance reservations are recommended.

Bluff Cliffs

Visit this beautiful cove and jump off the cliffs if you dare. The cove can be quiet and peaceful during the week, but is known on weekends as party cove where you can drop an anchor, cheer on cliff jumpers, and get to know other boaters on the lake. 


Kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Boards
We love to kayak in the morning and before sunset when the lake is calm. We provide a tandem kayak and two stand up paddle boards for guest use at Lakefront Landing. Rentals are also available at Lakeview Marina and Twin Creeks Marina. 


Pennington Cave
Accessible only by water, Pennington Cave is a beautiful and fun place to visit. Climb on top of the cave or enter the cave on a tube or kayak.


Tims Ford Lake is regarded as one of the top smallmouth bass fishing lakes in the southeast and is also well known for giant crappie, striped bass, largemouth bass, catfish, and walleye. The lake is stocked annually. Numerous local and professional tournaments are conducted on the lake.
