Cherokee Lake covers 30,300 acres and 463 miles of shoreline. Its watershed covers 3,428 square feet. The backdrop of gently rolling hills and farmlands make for a heavenly country retreat. It lies in Hawkins, Grainger, Hamblen and Jefferson counties. Cherokee Dam on the Holston River was constructed by TVA in 1942 in order to generate electricity during World War II and continues to supply electricity to this day.

The lake provides enough activities to attract millions of recreational visitors each year. Although Cherokee Dam was built primarily to provide electricity it has helped prevent billions of dollars worth of flood damage to areas downstream throughout the years. The deep waters of the lake loose oxygen during the summer months. These are the waters drawn for generating power. In addition, miles of perforated hoses suspended above the bottom pump oxygen to help support aquatic life at these levels.

Large slow-running fans also push oxygenated water from the surface to the depths. Activities at Cherokee Lake include boating, fishing, camping and swimming. Public access areas, county & municipal parks, commercial boat docks & resorts, Panther Creek State Park, state wildlife management area and campgrounds will have everyone ready to take a trip to the Cherokee Lake area. Game fish range from black bass, sauger, walleye, crappie and sunfish to the usual rough-fish species.
