Welcome to Chickamauga Lake!

Located just 4.5 miles North of the Chattanooga, Tennessee’s ‘Scenic City,’ Chickamauga Lake offers 810 miles of shoreline stretching across five counties. So whether you are looking for a cabin retreat, fun on the water, or a quiet resort getaway, you will find it all here.

Chickamauga Lake is a boater’s delight. With 58.9 miles of water to enjoy and plenty of boat ramps and docks along the way. You’ll find a different experience at each of them as you eat, play and explore. You’ll have easy access to water vessels – boat, kayak, jet ski, sailboat, yacht, and canoe rentals (as well as purchases) are all readily available. While you visit the world’s second lake for bass fishing, take a guided tour and get some tips from the pros or just enjoy the sandy beaches or paddleboards. It’s all up to you.

And the fun doesn’t stop on the water. The land surrounding Chickamuaga Lake stretches from Tennessee’s Scenic City in Chattanooga up to the majestic Smokey Mountains near Knoxville and offers everything you can imagine. Hiking, camping, cabin rentals, RV Parks, wildlife refuge and state parks to name just a few. You can even see majestic eagles soaring in their natural habitat. And if you love the idea of a cabin getaway but don’t want to leave the city life, just pop down to Chattanooga’s historic downtown to walk the riverfront, browse the Bluff Art District, or visit the famous Chattanooga Choo Choo.

Visitors agree that Lake Chickamauga offers it all – fresh air, peaceful settings, and adventurous fun. Come enjoy as much of it as you can.
