Tilawa Marina on Watauga Lake

Due to delays in the renovations caused by weather and contractor issues we will not be opening the Tilawa Marina for the 2015 season. We really appreciate all the calls and encouragement we have received from our friends. Renovations will be resumed and we will post an estimated opening date next spring. Bookmark our site and check back with us in 2016. Thank you ...

WHEN we open we would like to have your boat or pontoon tie up in our berths, or your camper trailer parked in our campsites. We may still be doing some renovations, and some dust may fly, but good and positive changes are happening. We have done some major construction and we're plannig for new services in the future.

Tilawa Marina is a medium sized Marina and RV/Camping destination. As the new owners, we are dedicated to providing a safe and secure boating experience for families, with our 48 Boat Slips for pontoon, sail and power boats and camping enjoyment at our RV/Camping spaces. This quiet and beautiful location is on the site of the oldest marina on the lake and is destined to be known for providing excellence of accomodations and charm for our clients.

Tilawa - Which means Land of Wind and Rain, Mountain and Water to us, is on beautiful quiet Tilawa Cove with boat slips well out of the lake traffic, and view oriented RV and camp sites, situated along the Northern lakeside, just east of the State Road 67 Butler Bridge on 1700 Sink Valley Road, in Butler, TN. (Formerly known as Pappy's Marina). Visit us this summer and enjoy the water and views at our special place on the lake. It's a little piece of heaven on the Tennessee, North Carolina border. We provide a family-oriented lake destination, recreation, and vacation hide-away.

There are no 2016 Leases at this time. Contact us if you have any questions or check back to this site for the latest information about our opening date. We lease our watercraft slips and RV camping sites on annual, six month and three month periods. New leases start on April 15th at our very reasonable rates.

Once we receive an application for a lease we will contact you to clarify any questions we have and to take all the necessary actions needed to reserve you a space. You may contact us too by Snail Mail, E-mail or Phone if you have questions. Spaces are assigned by management and are not reserved in advance. Our
