Douglas Lake


Lake History

Douglas Lake is 30,400 acres nestled in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains. It is formed by the French Broad River and tributaries of the Nolichucky and Pigeon Rivers. Gently rolling hills offer beautiful vistas from every angle. You’ll find year round activities at the lake such as boating, picnicking, fishing, camping, swimming, bird watching and more. Douglas Lake welcomes two million recreational visitors each year. Bordering counties are Jefferson, Sevier, Hamblen and Cocke.

When it comes to fishing, Douglas Lake has you covered! It is rated in the top 5 Crappie fishing lakes in the nation and in the top 10 Large Mouth Bass fishing lakes in the nation. Other good fishing includes: white bass, sauger, black crappie, striped bass, spotted bass, walleye, blue cat, flat head catfish, channel catfish, red horse, red breast sunfish and bluegill. Fishing is a year round sport at Douglas although spring and fall are the preferred seasons.

Douglas Lake is one of the TVA reservoirs built during World War II and provided much needed hydropower during the war. Douglas continues to be an integral part of the water control system of the Tennessee Valley. Spring rainwater is stored for release in summer and fall in order to maintain an adequate navigational depth in the Tennessee River while also generating electricity.

The Douglas Lake area offers something for everyone – so pack up the camper or even the moving van and come on down!
