Watauga Lake marinas offer a wide variety of recreational opportunities. The impounded water flow below the dam allows for whitewater rafting and kayaking. This area has a reputation for houseboats and even holds an annual boat parade each July 4th.
For couples, families and even seniors, spending the day boating on Lake Watauga is a great opportunity to have some fun, renew old bonds and make some new friends.
According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency fireworks permit office, there will be a fireworks display at Lakeshore Marina, Mile 36 on Watauga Lake on Thursday, July 4, 2013.
The July 4, 2013 Watauga Lake Boat Parade is set for 2 p.m. This is the 13th annual parade and most of the lake’s marinas will be participating with gas prizes for the best decorated boats.
