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 (trail map) 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 (trail map).

Douglas Lake is one of the cleanest lakes in Tennessee, and the only lake convenient to Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Douglas Lake attracts nearly 2 million visitors each year. It's an anglers paradise and is the site for several bass fishing tournaments each year, including the Tennessee B.A.S.S. State Tournament.

The resort is convenient to all this area has to offer: water parks, nascar rides, mini and regular golf, horseback riding, hay rides, zip lines, craft and antique shops, outlet malls, not to mention Dollywood, Dixie Stampede, the Titanic Museum, etc.

There are restaurants to suit every taste within minutes of the cabin.

Don't forget beautiful Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountains where you're sure to see deer, wild turkey, and if you're lucky, a bear or two.

*****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.

The cabin was a nice place. Clean and nice and big!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was good, but the stove top had 2 burners not working. The grounds were not checked well there were trash laying out and I did let the owners know.

But over all it was a nice place to stay at.

This was a beautiful cabin that was perfect for the 6 of us to stay at. The kids loved the pool and playground that was super close to walk to. We hope that it works in the future to rent a VRBO in this location again.

Very pretty cabin but.....

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was beautiful but the location wasn't. No views of anything at all. In the description it made it out like there would be more to the view, def not the case. Also, the cleaning wasn't done for some time. Dust webs everywhere and the fans had what was probably years worth of build up on them. It just really needed a deep cleaning because the cabin itself was cozy and had a nice layout. The hot tub was another story. They say it's cleaned after every use but when we took off the cover, we found dirt settled on the bottom. We decided that it wasn't enough to keep us from getting in but when we did, we didn't last long because the water temperature was what felt like bath water that had sit too long and there was no place to turn the temp up. I have never been so cold in a hot tub in my life and the jets were so low that they didn't even make the hot tub bubble. Bad experience with that. We did enjoy our mini vacation overall because of shopping experience, but this is not a place I would book again a second time. With that being said, if the issues above were fixed, I would think about booking it again for a second time to give it a fair chance.

Owner's Response: We don't advertise that this cabin has views of the lake or mountains, we do have pictures on the website of the lake and the Smoky Mountains, on the pictures it says Douglas Lake and Smoky Mountains, there is even a place on the site where we state what views and there are none listed. There is one ceiling fan in the cabin and it's up very high and it does get dusty because even with a huge ladder you can't reach it. The hot tub is cleaned between each guest and there is calcium and lime in the water because we are on well water and there is residue at times and we were in a sever drought this summer and fall and the water was cloudy at times because we did run out of water at one time and had to call the county to bring water in. I never heard from you during your stay and if you had called we would had resolved the issue immediately! If we do not hear from guests we assume everything is ok. We even ask in the rental agreement if there are any issues to contact us during your stay. We get good reviews on our cleanings and we have more cabins.

Great Spring Break Vacation Indeed!

  • 5 of 5

This is my family's second stay at Douglas Resort and every moment me and my family cherished the time we were there!! I must say that the stay was very delightful and breath taking as usual! The cabin was well maintained and very clean with everything in working order as usual also. There were flat screens with cable in every room! DVD player in 2 rooms. The kitchen had everything you could possible need to prepare meals. My family loved the hot tub and there is a very nice playground that my little one loved as well. There is also a very nice pool there too. There are attractions in Pigeon Forge maybe 20 mins away and Gatlinburg's Smokey Mountain which we visited and it was amazing!!. There are all kind of attractions that you could visit while there that is close to cabin..Susan the management has always been very accommodating and has always strives to make our stay the very best!! Thanks Susan we enjoyed our stay and we are planning our next stay already. We cant wait to return.

Great Cabin at a great value!

  • 4 of 5

From our first contact with the owner, we had a very positive experience. The cabin was extremely well-stocked and in excellent condition. The few issues we experienced were dealt with immediately by the owner. The location was off the beaten path, which is exactly what we were searching for, yet a convenient short drive. Definitely be aware that there is a long staircase (26 stairs) that must be climbed to reach the cabin, which made hauling luggage and groceries difficult. I would definitely recommend this cabin or others owned/operated by this owner. The area was beautiful and the price was very fair and affordable.
