Just upstream from Chattanooga, the Tennessee River spreads out into two beautiful lakes – Chickamauga Lake and Watts Bar Lake. Meigs County, Tenn., borders both reservoirs along its western border, offering easy access to both lakes and an assortment of marinas and campgrounds catering to the boating crowd. The Hiwassee River crosses the southern portion of the county, where it empties into the Tennessee River. Combine all that water with some incredible scenery, local flavor and a significant history and you’ll find Meigs County to be a relaxing shoreline community for those looking to unwind and relax in the great outdoors.
