South Holston Lake
Boat, kayak, water-ski and fish the meandering shoreline of this TVA lake. Launch your watercraft from Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s ramp on US 421 or from Little Oak Campground off Forest Road #87. You can camp near the water at Little Oak and Jacobs Creek Campgrounds.Observation Knob at TVA’s South Holston Dam is a great place to view the lake against thebackdrop of Holston Mountain. Look for bald eagles, reintroduced in the 1990s. Loons, buffleheads, mallards and ring-billed gulls are among the area’s waterfowl species.
