Information for guest about Douglas Lake.

Set against the backdrop of the foothills of the Smoky Mountain, Douglas Lake is a popular recreation for all types of vacationers. The dam that controls the reservoir was built in 1942, stretches 202 feet high and 1,705 feet across the French Broad River. Douglas Lake provides 513 miles of shoreline and 28,420 acres of water surface for recreation activities. In a year with normal rainfall, the water level in Douglas Reservoir varies about 44 feet from summer to winter. Although most of the shoreline along the 43 mile-long lake is private. Amenities include restrooms with showers, picnic areas with tables, a boat ramp and a swimming beach.

Birdwatching: From late July to early October, birdwatchers will witness the fall migration of shore birds, wading birds, and other waterfowl that flock to Douglas Lake. The birds rest and feed on the muddy shoreline and in areas of shallow water exposed as the level of the reservoir is lowered to winter flood control levels.

Fishing: Nourished by three rivers, Douglas Lake has become the premier crappie lake in East Tennessee. Other good fishing includes: white bass, sauger, black crappie, striped bass, spotted bass, walleye, blue cat, flat head catfish, channel catfish, red horse, red breast sunfish and bluegill. Fishing is a year round sport at Douglas although spring and fall are the preferred seasons. From November to May, the wide shallow embayment, fertile creek hollows and stump beds, attract the crappie in huge numbers during the spring spawning season making crappie fishing excellent! Spring is the best time for bass fishing but you'll find there's good stock year-round.

Trails: If you want to add a hiking adventure to your time at the lake, the trailhead to the Trotter Bluff Small Wild Area is adjacent to the Douglas Dam Headwater Campground. Hike the almost 2 miles of trail that winds through 30 acres of hardwood forest and limestone sinkholes to an overlook of the lake's tailwaters. Springtime hikes are enhanced with colorful wildflowers that dot the landscape.The Dandridge Partnership Trail is a 1.2 mile out-and back that winds through wooded terrain

*****Douglas Lake is a seasonal lake regulated by the TVA. There will always be water in the main channel however, during certain times of the year there will not be a lot of water at our shoreline. The TVA starts to fill the lake over Memorial Day and it is usually full by the end of May.. The TVA then starts to empty the lake after Labor Day and by the end of September, there is not a lot of water at our shoreline but there is still water in the main channel and you can drop your boat at one of the marinas on the main channel.

Absolutely gorgeous except for one little flaw

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was gorgeous and very clean. The only problem was I have a son and daughter obviously they wasn't going to sleep in the same bed room so my son was going to sleep on the couch and when we pulled it out the mattress was covered in pee stains so he slept on the floor. Next time I'll just bring an air mattress. When we travel just in case. Best cabin we stayed in by far!

The Mountain Escape cabin was extremely clean and comfortable for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of our cabin too! Being surrounded by nature, it was peaceful and serene, as well as just a short drive away to enjoy tons of activities.

The cabin had all the home essentials too to make our stay even easier!

We truly had a fantastic stay!!

Thank you,

Lynne

Nothing but good things to say

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as described and pictured. We have been renting through VRBO/Homeaway about once a year every year since 2005 and I dare say this is the cleanest place we've ever stayed---it was immaculate. The cabin is comfortable, really feels like a home away from home for your stay. Nice furniture, well stocked kitchen, comfy bedrooms, well-functioning bathrooms. Wrap-around porch is lovely with its views. We appreciated being up away from the hustle and bustle of Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg.

It was perfect for our stay and the owners were FANTASTIC to work with both before and during our stay.

We didn't visit the community pool but drive by---not super-close to the cabin. We were fine with disconnecting but it is worth noting that we did not have access to WiFi at the cabin (apparently none is available on their side of the mountain). To be honest, this was nice, we spent our evenings reading and playing games but I know as a user of VRBO I appreciate when fellow reviewers point out things that may throw others off so I wanted to mention the pool distance and lack of WiFi because I wouldn't want Paul and Sue Ellen to have disgruntled guests nor have someone leave a bad review on account of these---better you know before you rent if these are concerns!

Thanks for the wonderful stay! We will recommend to family and friends traveling to the Smokies.
