USS Watauga was a proposed United States Navy screw frigate that was never built.

Projected as a screw frigate, Watauga was intended to be similar to, but somewhat larger than, the Java-class frigates (USS Antietam, USS Guerriere, USS Minnetonka, and USS Piscataqua).[1]

Although first carried on the Navy List in 1864, Watauga was never laid down. The contract for her construction was cancelled in 1866.
