Lots to look at and enjoy! We were there in October and the lake was down. Trails and the views galore. We took some walks and enjoyed a few stops to picnic in the extreme quiet.

If you're visiting the Pigeon Forge area, be sure to take a drive out to Douglas Lake. It's a large, beautiful, clean lake with stunning views!

This place is a beautiful place to picnic and the views are magnificent. There needs to be a play area for kids and maybe some adult game areas. The restrooms need to be upgraded with more stalls too.
