Fall Clean Up - September 29, 2018 - 10:30am to 1pm

Cherokee Lake Users Association and Carson Newman University Students are teaming up for a Fall Clean Up on Saturday, September 29th at   10:30 am.  TVA has offered to provide bags, gloves and pickers and depending on water level, we also have four marina’s which are allowing us their boat launches:


Black Oaks Marina, Inc.

Cedar Hill Boat Dock

German Creek Marina

Gilmore Dock


We also have several communities which will be doing their own fall clean-up on different days this fall (Chelaque Estates and Legacy Bay).  If you want to start a community clean-up please contact us, we can assist you with getting you t-shirts and supplies.  


The lake is going down and the garbage is appearing. We are in critical need of boats to bring the students to the islands and shorelines for litter clean-up.  We don’t want to turn any volunteers away.
