About Watauga Lake

East of Elizabethtown, Tennessee, nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and the Cherokee National Forest lies Watauga Lake. Created in 1948, Watauga Lake is the TVA's highest elevated reservoir in Tennessee.

 

Located in the scenic Smokey Mountains, Watauga Lake covers Johnson and Carter counties. The lake has 105 miles of shoreline, covering 6,430 acres and a max depth of 265 feet.

 

One of the biggest annual events on the lake is the 4th of July Boat parade. Started in 2001, every year participants decorate their boats, meet at the dam, and make their way up the lake. Prizes are awarded to boats with the best decoration.

 

Watauga Lake has several fee-based public and private boat launches available. With several golf courses conveniently located around the lake and an abundance of freshwater fish from walleye to small mouth bass, there is always something interesting to do.
