Tellico Dam and Tellico Lake are part of an extension of the Fort Loudon project. The dam diverts water from the Little Tennessee River to Fort Loudon Lake rather than creating electricity.
Tellico Lake’s breathtaking backdrop of the Great Smoky Mountains and Cherokee National Forest is stunning. On Tellico Lake, you can find just about any water activity your heart desires. On almost any given day you will see someone sail boating, pleasure boating, swimming, fishing, water skiing, or jet skiing. Lakeside parks, boat launches, picnic areas, overnight camping and marina facilities make enjoying water activities easy.
