Overview

South Holston Lake was named for the river that bears the name of Steven Holston, an early settler of the Tennessee Valley. Situated on the western edge of the Appalachian Mountains, the deep, clear waters of the 7,580-acre lake extend from northeastern Tennessee into Virginia. About 60 percent of the shoreline is bordered by the Cherokee National Forest, which further enhances the recreation appeal of the area.
