Nestled in the foothills of East Tennessee and adjacent to Knoxville neighborhoods, its 360 miles of shoreline offers a playground for recreation, year round fishing, summer water sports and lakeside parks.

Lady Vol Rowing is about to dawn. The boathouse on the Knoxville waterfront is expected to set the construction promotion. The three-story building will become the permanent home of the University Tennessee Lady Vol rowing team.

The facility will be built on the western end of the new Volunteer Landing site. The facility will jettison 40 feet out onto Fort Loudon Lake and will have balconies over the waterway. The 18,000 square foot boathouse, which will be used to house the rowing team, will also encompass a storage facility, equipment room, training area, offices and rooms for both team and university use.

The lower level will be the primary domain of the Lady Vols rowing team and direct access to the lake. The offices will be located on the 6,000 square foot second floor, which will also offer meeting room for university use as well as a river observation area.

On the third floor, there will be a restaurant that will be open to the public except for special event days such as UT football games.

The seven mile stretch of the Tennessee River between the forks of the river, offers Volunteer Landing, including bicycle trails, landscaping, commercial retail, two restaurants, residential developments, lighting of the Henley and Gay Street Bridges, historical markers, presentations and Bicentennial Park.

Amenities along the boardwalk include boat slips near Second Creek, fishing piers and gazebos interspersed along the length of the boardwalk, a central pavilion and plaza with stairs and elevators connecting a pedestrian bridge over Neyland Drive.

The gateway that’s not far away – leave the stresses of your busy life behind and come visit Ft. Loudon.

Ft. Loudon Dam is the uppermost dam on the Tennessee River. It is located just southwest of Knoxville in Lenoir City. The construction of Fort Loudon Dam begin in July of 1940 and ended seven months ahead of schedule in August of 1943. The dam received its name from a British fort that was built near the present site of the dam during the French and Indian War. Nearby Ft. Loudon Marina is the largest marina in Tennessee and offers boat rentals.

A short distance from Ft. Loudon Dam, Tellico Dam shares a powerhouse with Ft. Loudon. The dam diverts the flow from the nearby Little Tennessee River through a canal to the Fort Loudon reservoir.
