Douglas Lake in Dandridge TN???

Anyone out there in TT ski/live on Douglas Lake? Looking to do a family meetup this coming summer and I thought I could get out of a lot of the in law stuff by towing the boat down to a nice TN reservoir. Any input on it would be appreciated.

We stayed there once and rented a pontoon. It was a nice lake and I remember eating at a restaraunt close to a bridge.

I used to live in that area, and most of the watersports fans went to Cherokee Lake, while most of the fishermen preferred Douglas. Cherokee has better water and coves for watersports in my opinion, and the two lakes are very close to one another. I have spent well over 200 nights on Cherokee, and I basically lived there every weekend for a decade. If you are willing to drive an hour, then go to Norris Lake and see the prettiest water in the state.

We used to do a long family weekend on Douglas back in the mid 90s. We stayed at this place: http://mountainharborinn.com/

Typically, we'd have three ski boats and rent a pontoon boat for the long weekend. Back then boat traffic wasn't an issue and we found nice places to ski. But, I have no idea what the current conditions are now. There seems to be a lot of RV campgrounds on that side of the lake now.

Consequently, we moved our event to my cousin's cabin (once it was built) on Cherokee.
