Watauga Lake MapDriving Directions To Watauga Lake Cabins:



You can use MapQuest to get you to the lake, however you will need to follow the directions below explicitly unless you are interested in a long drive in the countryside. Please review before leaving and feel free to clarify any uncertainties with us. Grocery stores are mentioned so that you can conveniently stop on your way in and not have to return to town. Limited groceries are available at the Lake at the Elk Mills, Butler Barn and Dry Hill general stores which also serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and sell fishing licenses and other supplies.

From the East or South
Step 1) Follow Hwy 321 N, thru Hickory, Blowing Rock, and Boone. In Boone you will pass Food Lion, Wal-Mart and several restaurants on the left - Lowe’s, Back Yard Burger and Auto Bell on the right. Hwy 321 will turn four times around Boone – follow the truck route/ By-pass north which is clearly marked.

Step 2) Just before Appalachian State University at a two story Wendy’s, Hwy 321 joins Hwy 421 and 105 – turn left on the By-pass. Immediately after turning left you will see Peabody’s Wine and Beer Merchants (an excellent stop) on the right. A couple miles ahead Hwy 105 continues straight toward Linville and Banner Elk but you will turn right to stay on Hwy 321 & 421 after an Exxon Gas Station. At the next light/ intersection at top of the hill, you will turn left where 321 bypass merges with 321 business route and continue North toward Mountain City.

(Alternatively you can go straight thru downtown Boone/ASU- continue straight on Hwy 321 business and don’t turn left at Wendy’s, pass Blockbuster Video on the left and turn left at the T (stoplight) beside Dan’l Boone Inn. Continue on 321 North).

Step 3) Hwy 321 will turn left one last time at Skate World - where 321 and 421 split. Turn left on Hwy 321 toward Elizabethton (39 miles), Hampton (34 miles), and TN state line (11.2 miles) - DO NOT stay straight on 421 to Mountain City.

Step 4) When you cross the Tennessee State line set your odometer trip meter to zero. Go another 4.3 miles and turn right onto Buntontown Rd, (road signs are frequently down but you will see a sign for Sugar Hollow bed and breakfast). If you turn early on the two previous roads (Gregg’s Branch or Meadowview Rd) like Mapquest suggests, no problem, they will end at a stop sign then turn right on Buntontown Rd.

Step 5) Just a little over 3 miles you come to Pioneer Landing Campground and Marina, veer left and cross bridge over Watauga Lake and dead-end into mountain side.

In Boone, Hwy 321 and 421 will merge - Hwy 321 will turn left and split from 421 a few miles north of Boone at Skate World. Both Hwy 321 and 421 can take you to cabins (for 321 directions follow Steps 3 through 6 above) Otherwise, continue on Hwy 421 toward Mountain City.
