About Watts Bar Lake

One of the South’s Largest Lakes

Watts Bar Lake is located in the heart of the Tennessee River Valley, stretching 72 miles between the Fort Loudon Dam in Lenoir City and Watts Bar Dam near Spring City. Covering 39,000 acres, it is one of the largest lakes in the south.

 

The lake was created in 1942 and is regulated by the Tennessee River Valley Authority (TVA). It passes through the counties of Loudon, Roane, Rhea, and Meigs. Its major tributaries are the Tennessee, Clinch, and Emory Rivers.

 

A Convenient Location

Watts Bar Lake is less than a 100-mile drive from Knoxville or Chattanooga, Tennessee. Either city has a great choice of restaurants, shops, and hotels.

 

Knoxville is home to the McGhee Tyson Airport and Fort Sanders Medical Center. Chattanooga houses the Chattanooga Airport and CHI Memorial Hospital.

 

Along the banks of Watts Bar, you’ll find cabins, cottages, houseboats, and high-end developments. This beautiful body of water sees over one million visitors each year, but with its massive size, it never feels crowded.

 

Lake Paradise

Watts Bar’s wide-open stretch is the perfect location for powerboating, water skiing, tubing, wakeboarding, sailing, or simply cruising in a pontoon.

 

With 722 miles of shoreline, there is so much to explore. Kayakers and canoers have inlets, coves, and islands to paddle around. Its sandy shores are great for swimming or relaxing.

 

Fishermen especially enjoy Watts Bar Lake for its world-class fishing. It holds large amounts of largemouth, smallmouth, and black bass along with stripers, catfish, and crappie. In addition to marine life, you can spot blue herons, osprey, bald eagles, and other waterfowl.

 

Crow’s Nest, Terrace View Restaurant, Front Porch Restaurant, and Nick’s Lakeside Grill offer waterfront dining.

 

Watts Bar Lake Has it All

With Knoxville to the east, Chattanooga to the west, and a relaxed lake living in between, Watts Bar Lake has it all!

About Watts Bar Lake

Watts Bar Lake is situated in the heart of the Tennessee River Valley midway between Knoxville and Chattanooga. Watts Bar is one of the South's largest lakes at 39,000+ acres, it extends just over 72 miles between Watts Bar Dam and Fort Loudon Dam with the maximum depth being approximately 70 feet near the dams. The lake was created in 1942 and is regulated by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).

 

The principal tributaries are the Tennessee River and Clinch River with the Emory River also flowing directly into the Clinch River. It is surrounded by Loudon, Roane, Rhea, and Meigs Counties. All along the banks of Watts bar one can find cabin and house boat rentals as well as other lake lodging.

 

Many of the Watts Bar Lake marinas offer fishing boat, pontoon boat, jet ski and houseboat rentals and for those who just can't get enough of the water, several new high-end, residential developments allow residents to live right on its edge.

 

Fishermen especially enjoy Watts Bar Lake and the abundance of world class fishing that includes many species of fish such as black bass (both small and large mouth), white bass, spotted bass, white and black-nose crappie, striper, rock fish, sunfish, catfish, and even sauger. The lake even holds the world-record skipjack herring, weighing in at four pounds and was caught in 2004.

 

With Knoxville to the east, Chattanooga to the west, and relaxed lake living in between, Watts Bar Lake has it all!
