Cherokee Lake Users Association, TVA and several local Marinas are teaming up for the Spring Clean Up on Saturday, planned for April 13th at   10:00 am – 1:00 pm.  TVA has offered to a boat or barge and bags, we also have the following marina’s which are allowing us their boat launches.  We will have promo gifts, snacks and water for all volunteers.  This is a RAIN or SHINE event, so please dress appropriately.: 


Black Oaks Marina, Inc.

Gilmore Dock

Lakeside Marina (also hosts a free hot dog with all the fixing lunch afterwards)


We also have several communities which will be doing their own spring clean-up on different days this spring (Chelaque Estates April 11 and Legacy Bay April 6).  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 up and the garbage is floating everywhere. We are in critical need of boats to bring volunteers to the islands and shorelines for litter clean-up.  We don’t want to turn any volunteers away.  Also, if you know of critical areas that need cleaning, please notify us ASAP.

First-ever East Tennessee Polar Plunge

The Middle East Tennessee Tourism Council in conjunction with the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce, and Cherokee Lake Realty hosted the first annual East Tennessee Polar Plunge on January 1, 2019 at Cherokee Lake in Jefferson City, TN. Proceeds from the event went to Keep the TN River Beautiful Foundation to help in their efforts to perform lake and river clean-ups, and to the Middle East TN Tourism Council to help promote the 9 lakes, the National Park, and State Parks in East TN.

The Event was a huge success.  See pictures below:
