Very relaxing!
Aug. 2020
My brother, his wife, and my tween boy rented a pontoon boat and toured the lake. We did a little fishing with no luck. We rented from a place on Douglas lake that had only new pontoon boats, and we had the most relaxing time! It poured rain in the early AM, so we nearly did not go, but so glad we did. By they time we arrived later in the morning, the sun was shining and it turned out to be a beautiful day. We were SO glad we only rented the boat for 1/2 a day which was plenty of time, an entire day would have been too much for us. Be aware, there is NO place to dock and use a bathroom, not even the pontoon rental places. There are many "fingers" to this lake, so we explored most of them. Because of the early rain, we had a lot less traffic on the lake. Most of the boats did not arrive until the afternoon. The floating dock was not very fun to cross to get to the boat rental. If I were elderly, or very young, it may have proved to be difficult. Would highly recommend a portable stroller for young children. There are no hand rails, nothing, but a floating dock that is relatively narrow, and if it is windy at all that dock moves a LOT. difficult to keep your balance, unless you look ahead and not down. They should definitely consider putting in a dock with hand rails.

We took a tour of the island in the middle of the lake that sits in front of the Marina. You would never know that if you didn't take the tour. Lots of coves and the lake is 140 ft deep. Man man by the dam in 1942 in a short period of time. Beautifully surrounded by mountains with the Smokeys in the background

Renting a pontoon from Smoky Mountain Lake Adventures is a wonderful way to spend a day on a beautiful mountain lake. The views on and from Douglas Lake are amazing!

I took several trail walks, went to the dog park, washed clothes and enjoyed the scenery. We left and ate at a restaurant not to far from the camp site and it was delicious. Stunning views and would definitely stay here again. :)

Beautiful lake!!!!

Douglas Lake is a beautiful lake with several marinas offering pontoon boats, jet skis, and many other items for hire. The lake also offers great fishing opportunities and is within easy reach of the attractions including Dolly Parton's Dollywood, many dinner theaters, numerous restaurants, fabulous discount shops etc of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Knoxville. There is The Tennessee Lake House, a fabulous lake front property sleeping up to 30 available for reunions or weddings, and there are also smaller cabins for rent.
