Recreational activities in the Town of Louisville include the beautiful Fort Loudoun Lake and the Tennessee River, which flow through the town. The lake and the river are navigational and certain channel depths must be maintained at all times, thus there is minor fluctuation in water levels. The lake offers water-oriented recreational opportunities, which broadens the scope of outdoor experiences for citizens. These water-oriented activities include boating, camping, swimming, picnicking, fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, wakeboarding, and sculling.

Louisville Landing Marina has a boat ramp, gas pumps, a restaurant, boat slips, and boat storage. There are numerous other boat ramps in the Town of Louisville, including the ramps at Poland Creek Campground, Louisville Point Park, Lowe's Ferry Silo, Louisville Main Street, and George Creek.

The lake provides many excellent fishing areas, and there is a great variety of fish, including bass, crappie, bluegill, walleye, sauger, several kinds of catfish, trout, and many kinds of rough fish. Numerous fishing tournaments begin and end at Poland Creek Campground and Recreational Area.
