Located in North East Tennessee, Watauga Lake has the highest elevation of TVA's man made lakes. Reported to be the third cleanest lake in the U.S., Watauga Lake is fed by many mountain rivers and streams including the Elk and Watauga Rivers originating in North Carolina. Visitors to the lake comment on the cleanliness, beauty of the surrounding Cherokee National Forest, and lack of homes on the mountainsides. Views of the lake and surrounding mountains from the Appalachian Trial on Iron Mountain takes your breadth away. Stop by Tennessee Lake Properties for more information.
