Great Falls Dam is the only dam outside the Tennessee River owned and operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority. Great Falls Lake covers 1,800 acres and has 120 miles of shoreline and is suspected to be very deep. There are no formal reports on how deep the lake actually is, but the dam towers at 92 feet above the river bed.

Popular Activities on Great Falls Lake
