A great day on the lake begins with the perfect boat. One that fits your lifestyle. Laurel Marina & Yacht Club was established with the birth of the Tennessee Valley Authority and has been matching families with fun since 1950. South Holston Lake, situated in the beautiful mountains of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia near Bristol, TN/VA, is far and away one of the most spectacular lakes in the country. Clean, placid waters surrounded by breathtaking mountain vistas and lazy, private coves, provide an abundance of natural beauty for recreational boating enthusiasts.
