Lake Watauga

If you visit during the warmer months and want to enjoy lots of fun on the water, plan a day trip from Beech Mountain NC to Lake Watauga in the extreme eastern region of Tennessee.

Lake Watauga in Tennessee is one of the most scenic lakes that you can visit in the southeast. Renowned for its beauty, much of which has been preserved due to the lake being surrounded by protected lands of the Cherokee National Forest, the lake offers plenty of fun on the water. There are several “put in” points or boats and other water craft, and if you want a special spot to have a picnic on the lake there are numerous Cherokee National Forest rest and visitor areas that allow folks to use the picnic tables and sandy beach areas for a small fee (on the honor system).

Boating, skiing, jet skiing, and fishing are all allowed on the lake. If you want to rent a boat or jet ski, there are several marinas on the lake that offer boat rentals and more. Plan a trip to the lake while you are staying on Beech Mtn NC.
