Marina History

Fish Springs Marina is the oldest continuously operating marina on beautiful Watauga Lake, having been in the White family for three generations beginning with Ray White the day the lake opened in 1949. Tom White passed the torch to his son in 2001 and Fish Springs Marina is now fully owned and operated by Thomas White, grandson of the original founder. Watauga Lake is the perfect family-oriented destination for boating, fishing, camping or sightseeing excursions and Fish Springs Marina is your gateway to family fun on the water!

Fish Springs Marina is the only true, full service marina on Watauga lake, providing fully certified on-water service department, open, covered, jet ski and houseboat slips, pontoon boat rentals, a twenty-four hour fueling station, campground, boat and trailer storage, full service marina store and fishing guide service. Fish Springs sells new and used boats and carries the full line of new Tahoe Pontoons, HydroHoist boatlifts and an inventory of quality pre-owned boats. Fish Springs is also the exclusive full line dealer of Yamaha outboards in northeast Tennessee.

Fish Springs Marina was the first, TVA Certified Clean Marina on Watauga Lake and carries that honor with pride! Our family-friendly staff is ready, willing and able to assist you in making your portal for family fun as remarkable an experience as the White Family has so graciously demonstrated for over 60 years.
