Douglas Lake located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Conveniently located at the junction of Interstates 40 and 81 in East Tennessee the lake offers recreational opportunities for families from coastal Carolina and the north and northeast states - all within a one day drive of the entire east coast.
