LOOKING FOR A LAKE HOME
Douglas lake offer a variety of options for you – condos, acreage tracts, custom homes, private coves, or panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains.
The lake is a reservoir lake similar to Cherokee and Norris lakes. It has the storage capacity of 1,082,000 acre-feet [whatever that is]. Due to flood control function of the Tennessee Valley Authority river system, it will fluctuate between winter reservoir and summer recreational levels; that can be as much as 44 feet.
We are supportive of the best time to look at the properties is during the fall / winter / spring lake levels. The lake is as deep as 140 feet in places; however there are also locations where the water recedes during the fall / winter draw down. Never wrong to have all the information.
