Boone Reservoir is located on the South Fork Holston River in northeast Tennessee. The reservoir is named for frontiersman Daniel Boone, who played a major role in the history of the area.
Boone Reservoir is managed for a number of purposes, including power production, flood damage reduction, water supply, water quality, and aquatic ecology.
The reservoir features a swimming area above the dam and a boat ramp with a courtesy pier for safe, convenient boat launching and retrieval. Water skiing and fishing are popular pastimes at Boone.
