Hello,

I will be moving to TN in a year. My work is in Chattanooga. Are there any large lakes (other than TN river) between Nashville/Chattanooga or between Knoxville/Chattanooga?

Thanks,
Lee

If you go up hwy 111 from Chattanooga and then west on hwy 70 towards Nashville you will cross Center Hill lake which is a very large beautiful lake.

I don't know what you consider "large", but large enough for fishing and boating between Chattanooga and Nashville are Tims Ford, Woods Reservoir, Normandy, and Percy Priest. Between Chattanooga and Knoxville is Watts Bar, the largest lake in East Tennessee, but it's part of the Tennessee River.

Depends on what you mean by "large", and for what it's worth the lakes on the TN river are quite large (Chickamauga, Watt's Bar, Nickajack, Guntersville, etc.).

Between Nashville and Chattanooga you have Tim's Ford Res, Woods Res, and Normandy Lake.

Between Chattanooga and Knoxville it's pretty much the lakes on the TN River and immediate tributaries. Parksville Lake (aka Ocoee Lake) on the Ocoee river is a tributary lake managed by TVA, but is well removed from the main river channel off to the east a bit.

Besides the many mentioned, Chattanooga is not far from Alabama and lakes like Guntersville and Wheeler. Guntersville is just down the road from Chattanooga. Heading toward the mountains, there is Ocoee. Not a huge lake, but really pretty.


Don't worry, you'll be in the middle of lake paradise.

At first I thought, what a question, then I thought, maybe there's a reason you asked.

We have a 33' Sea Ray and are avid boaters. I'm used to Lake St. Clair in Michigan.

What is your concern about TN River lakes? There are no 'natural' lakes of any size in this region; all of the lakes mentioned in this thread are impounded rivers.

Are you going to bring your Sea Ray to Tennessee?

When I lived on Grand Lake in Oklahoma there were several large Sea Rays on the Lake. Watts Barr is definitely large enough for a boat of that size.
