Cherokee Lake Reservior - Jefferson city TN

Cherokee Lake Reservior is a shore accessible fresh water dive site, located in Jefferson city, TN. The maximum depth is 61-70ft/19-21m. The average visibility is 5-10ft/2-3m.

There are two boats sunk here near the dam. A larger and smaller cabin cruiser plus a riding mower. Also a monument dedicated to a fellow diver who drowned in this lake years ago is close by and can be reached on the same dive. Depths range from 70 ft or so in summer to maybe as shallow as 40 ftin winter as the lake changes on this manmade TVA Lake. Bring a flashlight though as below 40’ it is a necessity.
