The Tri-Cities Airport is located just above the lake for those who fly in and out of the area. The city of Knoxville is just 100 miles away.

A Great Expanse

Boone Lake snakes 4,310 acres through the Appalachians. When it is at maximum levels, it runs 16 miles up the Fork Holston River and 15 miles up the Watauga River.

The lake has an average depth of 44 feet but can be as deep as 130 feet. It has 131 miles of shoreline with eight miles belonging to islands.

All Sorts of Water Activity

With so much water to explore, Boone Lake is a major boating attraction. Water sports like skiing, tubing, and wake surfing are just as popular. Several marinas around the lake provide rentals, storage, and other services.
