This is a beautiful drive. When we were here a couple of weeks ago the water level was very low. This is a beautiful part of the state and we make this drive from Chattanooga a couple of times a year.

Rent a boat to see the lake. Deyton Boat Rentals. Easy access and rates are reasonable. You can rent for 2-4-8 hrs. They will work with you. They gave a fleet of pontoon boats.

Stayed on the shore of this lake, watched the mist rise off in the mornings! Peace and quiet at its best!

First time we have stayed on the lake. It is gorgeous & so quiet! For a motorcycle Mecca, there is no noise whatsoever. So relaxing!

We camped at the campground here, nice and the showers were good. Our campsite was great, overlooking the lake. Not many people, so it was quiet. Beautiful setting....we would come here again.

Absolutely stunning. Crystal clear and amazing Mountain-water views. We stumbled across this lake on our way to Tapoco Lodge and now we can't wait to get back there and explore it more!

There are several places to launch your canoe on the lake. they all should be marked on google maps if you google a map of the area.
