Wolf Lake

Better known to the locals as Wolf Lake, this 183-acre high-elevation lake offers spectacular scenery and great boating.

Interestingly, Wolf Lake is joined to its smaller sister lake, Tanasee Creek, by an underground tunnel that was bored through solid rock. Wolf is popular with anglers, boaters and swimmers, and its access area includes restrooms.
