Looks like I'm heading out tomorrow night with my 11 year old boy to fish Athens for the first time. Are there any cabin rentals on the lake? I looked on google and there are hotel options west of the lake, but nothing around the lake. If I have to get a hotel, which one's are boat friendly, I need to charge boat batteries overnight. Hopefully I can put him on some fish, I've been hearing a lot of good things about the lake on here and we are pumped!

Don't know about lodging there and I hope you and your boy catch a bunch! cheers
If your fishing Friday, I may see you. Taking a vacation day and considering Palestine but will probably go to Athens. I'll be in this.

No lodging on the lake. Have to book a motel. Have stayed at the Budget Inn on west side of town several times. Not the best, but cheap. Best Western or Holiday Inn Express are closer to the lake and a lot nicer.

Super 8 is close and they offer a nice fisherman's discount. Clean and convenient. Boat friendly too.

I appreciate all the info, my son would love to camp out in a tent, I just think it will be a little warm for that at night. I'll look up all the hotels y'all mentioned, hopefully the fish cooperate!

PM sent. I've stayed at both the Super 8 and the Best Western and their both OK. Not great but can park your boat without too many problems and are clean.

Guys I really appreciate all the responses, is the boat ramp accessible 24/7? Also I thought I saw a thread on here about a restaurant on the water? If so, where abouts is it, and is it kid friendly?

I'm not sure if the ramp is open 27/7 but I think so.

I heard the restaurant is reopened and it's right next to the ramp, kid friendly too.

Enjoy, I love fishing Lake Athens.
