Local Attractions

Fort Loudoun Lake is located at the headwaters of the Tennessee River west of downtown Knoxville and extends 55 miles upstream from the dam to the confluence of the Holston and French Broad Rivers. Since Fort Loudoun is a navigable mainstream waterway, the annual drawdown is only six vertical feet. Water levels fluctuate between 813 and 807 feet above sea level. Fort Loudoun Lake features 379 miles of shoreline and 14,600 acres of water surface. Concord Marina offers striking beauty, and quality amenities for area residents desirous of a gorgeous setting in which to dine, stroll the area, meet friends and enjoy the beauty of Fort Loudoun Lake.

The Cove at Concord

This section of the park is where you can max out on Fort Loudoun Lake with paddling, fishing, and a swimming beach. During the warm months, the River Sports Cove store is open for Standup Paddleboard, Canoe, and Kayak rentals. On land there is a playground, volleyball and shoreline walks! The new 0.9-mile paved linear greenway runs from the Cove to the new multi-use trails adjacent to the roundabout at Northshore and Concord Road.

"This club is exactly what we wanted. No boat payment, insurance cost, maintenance, or clean up. Nice clean boats always ready when needed. We're able to take out our dogs too. It's great only having to pull the boat into the dock and leave the boat behind. "

"We are so happy with our Nautical Boat Club membership. We get to enjoy all the benefits of owning a boat, without any of the hassle and for less than the cost of renting a slip! When we arrive at the dock, our life jackets and water toys are loaded on the boat and ready to go. The staff is super friendly and courteous. This is a great way to relax and enjoy friends and family on the waterfront in Knoxville."

"We absolutely love NBC of Knoxville! It's so much better than having to maintain a boat and trailer it in and out of the water. Plus, we have access to a fleet of different boats to fit our needs, instead of being stuck with one type. "
