About Us

The Cherokee Lake Users Association (CLUA) is a non-profit 501(c)3 association. Our purpose is to maintain, protect and enhance the quality of Lake Cherokee and its surroundings for the collective interests of its members. CLUA is specifically interested in keeping the lake clean. CLUA has held annual lake clean-ups in partnership with Keep America Beautiful (KAB) and hopes to stimulate more interest each year with this project. CLUA keeps in touch with TVA and TWRA and has had speakers from both at previous meetings. CLUA tries to keep its members updated on any lake policy changes through this web site and by newsletters.

Monitor lake water quality, minimize the environmental impact of lake usage and enhance the recreational aspects of the lake.


  • Establish and maintain communications with TVA and TWRA
  • Clean up the lake and its tributaries
  • Establish a program of monitoring water quality
  • Investigate ways and means of increasing fish habitat
