J. Percy Priest Lake

Welcome to J. Percy Priest Lake

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District welcomes you to J. Percy Priest Lake.  The lake provides a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities for millions of visitors each year.  Because of the temperate climate and relatively long recreation season, visitors have numerous activities to participate in including fishing, hunting, camping, picnicking, boating, canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, and more. Because of the lake's proximity to Nashville (15 minutes from downtown) lakeside recreation can fit nicely into your other vacation plans.

J. Percy Priest Lake belongs to you, so keep it clean and attractive.  

Enjoy your visit by staying safe on the water and in the recreation areas. Please remember that the buoys on the lake may move off station due to extreme weather, lake level fluctuations, or other unforeseen circumstances.  Boaters should use navigation maps and/or GPS in order to avoid potential hazards on the lake.
