Local Attractions Near Watauga Kayak


Local Waterfall Blue Hole Free to Visit

Some Things You May Enjoy.



This is another waterfall that is easy to find.  Take Highway 91 east (NE really) out of Elizabethton, TN for about 10 miles.  Turn left onto Panhandle Rd at the big, brown national forest sign for "Blue Hole".  After the road turns to gravel look for a small parking area on the left side of the road (1 mile or so, I didn't keep track, sorry).  There is room for maybe 6 cars or so.

Bee Cliff Cabins

Bee Cliff Cabins is nestled in the mountain valley of Siam on the Watauga River. The cabins are a great place for fishing, hunting, or just a peaceful family get-a-way.  Three of the cabins are about 40 feet across a small road from the river and the others are located across the street on a hill with a beautiful scenic view. All the cabins share a dock on the river, but each cabin is fully furnished with all the luxuries of home. All you need is the food! Plus each cabin has its own private porch. The area has many exciting features; the lakes are only miles away, a river for fishing, rafting, and kayaking, and places for hiking including the Appalachian Trail. These unique cabins are owned and operated by John and Norine Allen.
