We came here to visit with friends at the Rowdy Dog Farm in Dandridge. Our hosts Susie and Lloyd took us out on the lake. The water was warm and the lake was incredible. There were very few boats and many small fish swimming around.
We rented a pontoon boat from Douglas Lake Marina for four hours. Very affordable! We did not have much luck fishing, but the kids loved swimming and riding on the tube. The lake is gorgeous, lots of nooks and crannies to visit, awesome rock structures...More

If you have a truck or SUV or something, maybe you could take the boat over to Douglas with or without the motor. Windjammer Marina (231-347-6103) on Crooked Lake will...More
My 12 yr. old Boy and I are vacationing for the first time this summer (June) in the Smokey’s.
