If you're looking for a peaceful, convenient place to stay while working at Watts Bar, come visit Sam's Boat Dock in Ten Mile, TN.  Just a five minute drive from the plant, Sam's offers long term mobile home rentals and RV sites.  All of our mobile homes are fully furnished and include cable TV, decks and gas grills.  Fish off the docks, relax in the Club House and join us for an occasional "home cooked" meal!  We are within walking distance to restaurants, Southeast Bank, US Post Office, grocery stores and much more...and we're open all year round.  Visit our website: or just drop by...we'd love to show you around.  Directions:  take Hwy 68 to Hwy 304 North.  Turn left and go 2.5 miles.  Watch for the big yellow Sam's Boat Dock sign and turn left.  The office is located across the road from the marina.

Does anyone have any updated info on Watts Bar?

Any info is appreciated!

My girlfriends' Mom has a teeny rental in Lenoir City. Her tenant works WBN, but is moving out. (after checking) Is it poor form to advertise here (and finding it is ok..)

This place is in decent shape. It's a detached building. Small. Full bathroom, connected kitchen / living area. Television with satellite, heat and air, you can enjoy the view and your coffee looking out the window over the sink...

It's a fairly quiet area, you can sort of hear the interstate occasionally, but neighbors keep to themselves, and her family are decent people.

I am told it isn't too awfully bad a drive.

I built them a website with pics prior to the last guy living there, but that's been a LONG time. I'll try to find it, though.

Interested people can email  for more.

Thanks in advance,

We've got a couple Lake-side RV spots available, if anyone is interested.  Most agree it's the nicest Park around.  You can give me a shout at 423-650-9468.  Or email

Our Park is only 5 miles from Watts Bar Nuclear.
Just leave Watts Bar and continue on Hwy 68 towards Spring City for 5 miles
Turn Right onto Wolf Creek Road
Go 0.2 miles and the RV Park is on the Left behind Wolf Creek Baptist Church
Amenities include:     Electric (20,30,50)     Water/Sewer   Free Wi-Fi Internet   Laundry Room  Large Outdoor Pavilion
You can check out our pictures at
Most of these pictures are from May, before we finished the park and our RVers moved in.  But it'll give you an idea.

If anyone has lodging information for this facility, please post it here.

Try checking out the Spring City Motel in Spring City Tennessee. Good people...Bob and Alberta Bowker, and clean rooms for a decent weekly rate.  
"Lakeside Resort" which is about 18 miles from Watts Bar. Family owned (nice people) - private area over looking part of the lake - very quiet. I have a sitting room - separate bedroom and a large refrigerator - laundry on site - bottom line $90.00 a week. Depending on the unit it can go to $135.00. They also have double units etc - not sure of the price. The number is 423-365-9521 ask for Gary or Connie

I am in desperate need of a roommate.  I am staying at Sam's Boatdock in a single-wide trailer.  This place is very clean with full kitchen and cooking/eating utensils.  There is another room and full bathroom available.  DTV in family rm and master br.  For internet you will need a mobile device (I am using a straight-talk device.)  The rent is $40/day +taxes which takes it to just over $45.  If interested contact George Tuell at 423-334-5620 or 423-368-5967.  Tell him you are inquiring about unit #11 and that you read about it on Nukeworker from Johnnieslingshot.  Lodging is getting very scarce around her and prices are high.  If I do not find a roommate very soon I will be asked to leave because he wants TWO people in this unit.  Reserve your spot ASAP.  Thank you.
