    Chickamauga is the lake I ride, well whenever they raise the water level back up. . .

    Is it PWC friednly? Easy access
    Yes, once they raise the water up, usually may-june.
    permits required ?
    No.
    Any must see's while in the area ?
    A few nice spots here and there but nothing really different than other lakes.

    Well last year it was mid-april when they started raising the water back up to the normal summer level. . . but so far this year the water level has been about 3-5' lower than last year so it might not be completly raised by then.

    But there will still be plenty of water for riding by that time.

    If you need I can get some maps of the lake/river if you need.

    Is the lake so low that there is a danger or just low spots. I have driven by just a week ago and it didn't seem that low.
    Well I am from the Tims Ford area and now that is low, 12' below normal. but there is still a lot of great skiing going on out there. I am out every weekend and a few days during the week. If you are ever up this way let me know.

    In the summer time the water level is raised about 10-12 ft., then dropped again. . . right now its at the summer level, even though its about 1-2ft below normal summer levels. Not much to worry about right now.
