If you want to see a big government project, this is one for you, they pump water up, then let it out to generate electricity. Went there for the mountain bike trails, which were good, with various skill levels.
When we visited in April, the Visitors' Center was being redone. At that time, there was just one bathroom available near the picnic tables. We thought there would be more hiking trails in the area, but we did enjoy the views. We had our picnic lunch on one of the tables. it was not crowded on a weekday afternoon in... 更多

This was a find at the recommendation from a guide at Racoon Mountain. So glad we ventured out to the damn. This was very interesting for the drive, sights, and views were soooo beautiful!!! The visitors center was closed but the gate guard was so nice to give us a brief explanation of the areas and info about the TVA.... 更多
This area is awesome for road biking. Traffic is minimal during the week and the road quality is excellent. Great views and great places to stop for a rest. Just be aware that your speeds can exceed 40 mph easily, so make sure you have good tyres, and great braking.
This is a good choice to get a good view from the mountain without all the traffic of Lookout Mountain. Visitor center is currently closed, but lots of nice hiking and biking trails
We really enjoyed going up there - and although the Visitor Center is being refurbished right now the area is still worth a visit - clean restrooms and beautiful picnic area available - nice and relaxing just to take in the scenery!!
A relative living in Chattanooga took me to this place. I never knew it existed, and yet it is just a few minutes from Chattanooga. Great views. Lots of very interesting information about the TVA and about this particular pumping station reservoir. Lots of walking and biking trails. The rock dam holding back the lake water was amazing.
