Even the Lower Level still has dramatic views of the lake. There is outdoor seating on the patio plus a Weber Grill. Play cornhole on the flat lawn just outside the door.

Clearwater Shores has a brand-new dock with a guest slip to use for their own boat or a rental. Swim off the new dock swim platform into the clear Smith Lake. There are numerous places to rent pontoons nearby.

Smith Lake is about 21,200 acres with about 600 miles of shoreline. It is the second cleanest lake in the United States next to Lake Tahoe. You can see to the bottom in a lot of places...but, it is also deep and very swimmable. It is one the best fishing lakes in the Southeast with Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Stripers, Hybrids and more. Smith Lake is home to numerous fishing tournaments held throughout the year. There is parking for trucks and trailers for our professional fishermen.

Clearwater Shores is truly special. If you haven't read about it yet...these are some of the best views on the lake. Also, it feels very private! Clearwater Shores is close to Trident Marine by boat (15 minutes) or car (9 minutes) which has a great restaurant called The Grille at Trident Marina...and boat rentals. There are many other marinas where you can rent mostly pontoons as well. There is a slip for ya right in front of Clearwater Shores on our dock. It is also an easy drive to Smith Lake State Park which has a public ramp. By the way, the fishing is excellent! Largemouth and Spotted Bass, Striped Bass, Crappie and Catfish! There is even fly fishing for Rainbow Trout below the damn...ask Bob Ekman about that.

Clearwater Shores is equal distance (about an hour) from both Birmingham, AL and Huntsville, AL and just 15 minutes off Highway I-65 at Exit 299 (Dodge City, AL). This unique lake home is less than 2 1/2 Hours from Nashville, TN, 90 minutes from Chattanooga, TN, a little over 3 Hours from Memphis, TN and Atlanta, GA and about 4 Hours from Jackson, MS. Best place to fly into is probably Birmingham or even Nashville.

Come spend time at Clearwater Shores at Smith Lake and you will be back. See ya'll soon! Thank you.
