Clearwater Lake provides great opportunities for boating. You see boats out on the water year round. During the cold months of the year, fishing boats are about all you see. However, during the summer months the lake comes alive with activity. People enjoy skiing, tubing, canoeing, kayaking, and riding wave runners. The cool, clear water provide relief from the hot summer sun. There are three marinas, run by private concessionaires that provide fuel, supplies, and services. There are a total of 12 launch ramps scattered around the project. The launch ramps located in Webb Creek, Bluff View, and Piedmont Park require a day use fee.
