About this club
We are excited to announce our newest club location at Lake View Dock! Nestled on South Holston Lake, in the hills of east Tennessee, Lake View Dock is flanked between the TVA Property of South Holston Dam and the Cherokee National Forest. The views and surrounding lake-front are spectacular!
Location in reference to body of water
The fine floating facility includes a General Store, complete with Lookout, providing beautiful views of South Holston Lake. Our Lookout provides a great gathering place for customers. The Lake View Dock General Store provides a full line of fishing, camping, and boating equipment and supplies. Gas, ice and a wide range of food are available in our store.
The Wheelhouse Restaurant is a casual walk up restaurant specializing in made to order breakfast, custom made pizzas, hoagies, and salads with fresh summer ingredients. Serving a variety of cold draft beer and fresh brewed iced teas.
What is there to do from this marina
Cliff Island is located off Point 2 and is a South Holston hot-spot. Pull your boat near the small island, swim to the low side of the island, and in 50 steps, you’ll be ready for an exhilarating 10 foot drop into the lake.
There are some great coves for water sports at the south end of the lake. If you’re heading north up the lake, hang a right at Point 3 and you’ll find some great options. Much of the shoreline is brittle shale making great places to pull your boat close to shore and enjoy a picnic or some exploring.
The TVA observation building at the dam on Highway 421 is a must stop location to enjoy views and learn about the lake.
