About J. Percy Priest Lake
Lake of Nashville

Out-of-state travelers have easy access to the lake through the Nashville International Airport, just six miles away, and the TriStar Summit Medical Center is only two miles away. The I-20, I-40, and I-65 are major roadways nearby.

A Beautiful Sight

J. Percy Priest Lake spans 14,200 acres across Rutherford, Wilson, and Davidson Counties. It features 213 miles of shoreline and 38 islands, and the Stones River is its inflow and outflow source.

The lake is home to 30 recreation areas, five marinas, hundreds of campsites, and over 1,500 boat slips.
