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. Construction began March 7, 1967 and the filling of the reservoir started on November 29, 1976. Tellico Lake stretches 33 miles along the Little Tennessee River into the mountains of east Tennessee and is home to several large upscale lakefront communities, neighborhoods and marinas. The lake has 357 miles of shoreline and 15,560 acres of water surface. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has banned all development for residential use on the properties surrounding Tellico Lake that have not already been sold. The ban makes properties being developed along Tellico now prime real estate in East Tennessee. Also unique is the lake's location along a chain of lakes connecting to the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway that travels all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean. Tellico Lake offers year-round recreation including: boating, fishing, waterskiing, jet skiing, swimming, camping, public parks, public lake access areas and much more. Tennessee's mild four-season climate makes it possible to boat throughout the year. In addition to the lake the area is also great for golf and hiking. No matter what you are looking for in a lake home, Tellico Lake has something for everyone!
