INFO ABOUT DOUGLAS LAKE

Douglas Lake, also known as Douglas Reservoir, stretches out over more than 28,000 acres and 500 shoreline miles in eastern Tennessee. Douglas Lake is conveniently located near the intersections of Interstates 81 and 40, approximately 25 miles east of Knoxville. Nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Douglas Reservoir is close to the tourist communities of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg. Most of the lake's shoreline is privately owned farmland and residential development.

Douglas Lake was created by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) during World War II to provide needed hydroelectric power for the war effort. Construction of Douglas Dam on the French Broad River began in 1942, and was completed in record time just 12 months later. Douglas Reservoir also provides flood control across the Tennessee Valley. The reservoir stores melted snow and spring rains for release during the dry summer months for power generation and maintenance of navigable water levels on the Tennessee River. The lower water levels during winter provide storage for next spring's rains. Water levels on Douglas Lake can vary 40 to 50 feet from low winter pool to high summer pool.

Although built for flood control and power generation, today Douglas Lake is a major recreation destination attracting two million visitors a year. Twelve public boat ramps provide lake access. Fishing, boating, water sports, swimming, and bird watching are popular lake activities. As water levels drop during the summer and fall, shore birds, wading birds, and other waterfowl flock to Douglas Lake to rest and feed along the shoreline's shallow water. Birdwatchers enjoy the migration from late July to early October.

Anglers flock to Douglas Lake for catches of largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, and catfish (channel, blue, and flathead). Late winter and early spring also provide excellent fishing for sauger, walleye, and white bass when they make their spawning runs to the reservoir's headwaters. Although most game fish sustain a healthy population, occasional stocking of smallmouth bass, white crappie, and sauger supplement their numbers.

The TVA operates the Douglas Dam Headwater Campground and the Douglas Dam Tailwater Campground. Both self-service campgrounds include more than 60 campsites with water and electric hookups, restrooms with heated showers, boat ramp, picnic tables, and wildlife viewing area. The Headwater Campground also offers a swimming beach and the Trotter Bluff Small Wild Area, a 3/4 mile walking trail through 30 acres of hardwood forest with limestone sinkholes, views of Douglas Dam, and abundant wildflowers during the spring. The Tailwater Campground offers children's play equipment, river fishing with fishing pier, a bait and tackle shop, and a group pavilion that can be booked for special events. The TVA welcomes visitors to the Douglas Dam and power station.

For some off-water fun, take a day trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, America's most visited national park. View awe-inspiring mountain vistas by car or on foot. The park has over 800 miles of hiking trails, ranging from short jaunts to strenuous treks. And with 1,500 black bears living in the Park, visitors hope to get a view of these magnificent animals. As the sun sets over the Smokies, return to Douglas Lake to prepare for the next day's adventures.

About Sara Wall

Mike and Sara Wall have owned and managed another cabin in Sevierville for several years. Wanting to provide a memorable vacation experience for larger groups, they have now purchased The Lodge at Douglas Lake. It is our goal to personally attend to your needs and not just own 'another rental cabin'.

Sara Wall purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Sara Wall chose Tennessee

Our son lives in the area and we wanted to semi-retire here in Sevierville and be close to him and his family. We love the outdoors and lake, so The Lodge at Douglas Lake is a perfect choice for our family.

What makes this cabin unique

We love sitting on one of the covered decks and watching the wildlife or just enjoying the view of the lake and the mountains. It is perfect for family celebrations and getting everybody together. There's enough room for the whole family to spread out, but yet still cook and eat together or enjoy the water.

We love providing a clean, large space for weddings, retreats, business meetings, and family reunions. We enjoy meeting the variety of guests that travel to east Tn.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at your lodge! It was everything you said and more. The weather was super, the Lodge was in great shape, and we all enjoyed the lake. Your Lodge was the ideal place for our family reunion. Thanks again.

Fabulous facility for our scrapbook weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Such a fun time wit 18 girlfriends at this spacious yet homey lodge. We had plenty of space to spread out to work on our scrapbook albums in the large dining room as well as conveniently placed outlets for our electronic devices. Ample beds and fully-stocked kitchen were welcome. Outdoor spaces to enjoy the serene surroundings. Short drive to the Scrapbook Superstore in Sevierville. We're already planning our next weekend!

The Lodge is amazing. Excellent accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We have a large family of 18 and there was plenty of room for all activities. The Lodge is clean and in excellent shape. We loved the large kitchen for cooking which had all the equipment we would ever need. Location is close to many activities yet it is isolated enough to provide a very private and quite environment. Already making our plans to return next year.

Wonderful Cabin and Scenery!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from taking a rather large group of teenagers and adults on a spiritual weekend retreat/conference. Our lodging was here at The Lodge at Douglas Lake. Let me tell you, what a great decision this was! The price was perfect, the facility was clean, there was tons of free room, kitchen was spacious and fully stocked, the outside area was beautiful and serene, everything worked properly (ie air, hot water, televisions, etc), and there were tons of sleeping choices. One of the owners came by twice to pick up trash, he was very friendly and more than available to help with any needs (to which we dind't have any problems thankfully!).

Last year we stayed in a group cabin we rented from VRBO, and to be honest, the pictures lied. They were at the right angles, it made everything look great, and when we arrived, it was very disappointing...BUT NOT HERE! The pictures really don't do it justice, you will have to trust me on this one! Our students weren't bored, they weren't on their phones the whole time because they were enjoying the cabin and the outdoors way too much! The kitchen made meal time a breeze (try feeding 40 teens in less than five minutes...that's a miracle on it's own!). The layout and floor plans available on the website are true to size.

We took a 56 passenger charter bus to this location, and it was a tight squeeze to get in, so if you plan on chartering larger buses, make sure the driver has experience in tight quarters and mountain terrain. It's not awful, but you may want some experience in that area. With that said, we got in and out ok, no incidents, no problems.

I would recommend this cabin for sure. If we come back to Pigeon Forge again, this place will definitely be at the top of our list!

Owner's Response: I am so glad your group enjoyed the lodge. We love the beautiful setting too and are happy to see young people out enjoying nature instead of sitting inside on their phones. I know it was a long drive for you, but I hooe you all will be able to return again.
