Boone Lake Association
Boone Lake Association Board of Directors looking for volunteers.
The BLA Board needs volunteers. Our By Laws allow for 12-15 Board members, 5 elected officers and 7-10 members at large who supervise one of our committees: Lake Operations, Facebook/Website maintenance, Membership, Public Relations and the Shoreliner. We currently have only 8 active volunteers. Can you spare some time to serve on the Board as a member at large or assist a member on one of the committees?
If so, please contact us at (423) 956-6615 and leave you name and contact information.

Boone Exposed Lakebed: An Owner’s Guide
"Lower water levels from the Boone Dam Project safety activities have left many lake front property owners with additional areas of exposed lakebed. These owners get to enjoy the exclusive right to use these exposed areas as private property; however, this added benefit comes with added responsibility."

Boone Lake Drawdown and BLA
BLA is a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping Boone Lake free of trash and debris and improving water quality. As is everyone who uses and loves the lake, we are very concerned about the environmental and economic impact regarding the news about Boone Dam and the lake levels. These concerns have been relayed to TVA who is the governing body of the lake and dam. They are basing their decisions on extensive information and regards for safety. We welcome your comments on the BLA facebook page but if you would like to also express your concerns directly to TVA, please visit TVA’s facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/TVA
2017 Membership Drive
Thank you for visiting our website. Now we need your help. Won’t you show your support for the Association by joining us in our effort to keep the lake clean. Your membership pays the wages of our 3 crew members on the lake year round removing trash and floating debris, insurance expenses and boat maintenance. Last year alone we removed 7 tons of large Styrofoam blocks ( 15 truck/trailer loads) in addition to trash, and logs (some as long as 40ft)
You will find a membership application here or you can call us at (423) 956-6615 and leave a message with your name and address and we will mail you an application. Basic membership is only $40 per year…but even better join at one of our higher levels!!! We are always looking for major sponsors at the $1000.00 level. Your dues are tax deductible.
Located in upper East Tennessee, Boone Lake has part of both the Holston and Watauga Rivers and over 600 nearby streams in the area.
The Boone Lake Association (BLA) is the only citizen group responsible for conserving Boone Lake by conducting water quality testing, generating water quality reports and continual lake clean-up. As thousands use Boone Lake each year to enjoy fishing and watersports, few understand they have the members of the BLA and their decades of protection to thank for the clean and clear waters.
Whether you're 18 or 88, a day on the lake will make you feel like a kid. Members' dues make it possible to have fun in a cleaner, safer environment.
