In the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, located conveniently off of interstates 81 and 40, Douglas Lake offers breathtaking scenery, great water recreational activities, and beautiful lakeside lodging. Douglas Lake has been named a BASSMASTER Top 100 Lake, and is considered one of the best lakes for Bass fishing in the Country.
Douglas Lake was formed when the Tennessee Valley Authority built the Douglas Dam in 1943 to provide hydroelectric power and help with downstream flood control of the Tennessee River Valley.
There are many ways to enjoy the water year round with pontoon, jet-ski and boat rentals as well as guided fishing trips. Plan your lake vacation getaway at a private cabin with your very own secluded cove and boat dock, or bring your R/V to one of the many camping and R/V resorts.
