The origin of the name Tennessee comes from the old Yuchi Indian word, "Tana-see," meaning "The Meeting Place." What better to "meet" new friends than on one of Tennessee’s recreational lakes? Tennessee has one national forest, 15 state forests, 54 state parks, 253 larger lakes, over 1000 smaller lakes, over 60,000 miles of streams, and some 540,000 incredible lake acres in all!
All the larger Tennessee lakes - Ft. Loudon, Douglas, Norris, Tellico, Melton Hill, Cherokee, and Watts Bar - have activities such as swimming, fishing, power boating of any size, Jet Ski riding, scuba/quarry diving, canoeing or kayaking or just about anything you would enjoy doing on the water with few restrictions. Miles of hiking and biking trails exist all around the lakes as well. Water quality and clarity on these lakes are all in the good/excellent range and most have gorgeous, long range, lake and mountain views! Tennessee has many direct waterfront lake homes and homesites ranging in price from about $200,000 to over several million which means there is a home for everyone.
