Cherokee Lake & Douglas Lake

Jefferson County is home to two lakes: Cherokee Lake along the north of the county and Douglas Lake along the south. Each lake is unique in what they offer those who visit it. While here, we hope you take advantage of at least one of the lakes, or maybe even both as they’re just a short drive apart.
