The Lakeside Resort marina even has a Pro Bass Shop and live bait.

Water sports and activities are also popular on the lake. You'll find many lake goers swimming, water skiing, pontooning, or just sunning themselves on the beach or on the deck of a rented houseboat. If you want to take a break from the water, Watts Bar Lake is home to several wildlife areas, including the Long Island Wildlife Management Area, Rhea Springs Recreation Area, and the Thief Neck Island Wildlife Management Area. If you plan to go bird watching around your lake-view cabin, you'll likely see great blue herons, osprey, black-crowned night-herons, great egrets, and even a few bald eagles. Land critters near the lake include white-tailed deer, raccoons, and foxes.

The beauty of Watts Bar Lake serves as a backdrop to several area golf courses. Tennessee National is a private 18-hole championship course, with five holes that overlook the lake. Southwest Point Golf Course is a public 18-hole course hugged by a bend in Watts Bar Lake, offering stunning views.

Located in the heart of the Tennessee River Valley, Watts Bar Lake offers 39,000 acres for any kind of water recreation. The lake, between Knoxville and Chattanooga, is easily accessible. Watts Bar Lake is big - 72 miles long. It is the size as well as the location that makes it one of Tennessee's preferred visitors' sites. And the 780-mile wooded shoreline has ample coves to drop an anchor or drop a fishing line. Or any of the lake's many islands can be explored. The lake is teeming with fish, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappie, channel and blue catfish, rockfish, striped bass, sauger, bluegills and more.

Houseboaters have two marinas to choose from: Bayside Marina on the eastern shore or Rhea Harbor on the western shore. The wooded hills surrounding the lake provide a varied terrain for hiking or backpacking. By car, a scenic highway travels southeast from Watts Bar Dam to the Cherokee National Forest, which is a neighbor to Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Water sports of all descriptions occur somewhere on the lake at some time of the year. There are more than 25 commercial docks on the lake and countless public boat ramps, day-use and access areas. Fishing, skiing, sailing, rowing and boating are obvious uses along with camping.
