Nickajack Dam Reservation (Lower Sequatchie Management Unit)
Nickajack Lake has roughly 215 miles of winding shoreline, 10,370 acres of surface area and is 46 miles long, extending up to Chickamauga Dam. Nickajack Dam was named for Nickajack Cave located about a mile upstream.
The counties surrounding Nickajack Lake include Marion County and Hamilton County.
Nickajack Lake offers amazing and spectacular scenery of the Tennessee River Gorge, and is also known as the Grand Canyon of Tennessee. The lake offers a scenic backdrop and a variety of lake activities including boating, fishing, waterskiing, jetskiing, swimming, camping, public parks, public access areas, picnic areas, and more. Both sides of the river below the dam are fishing berms and has a concrete fishing pier with foot bridges and wheelchair ramps. We recommend this site especially for birding and those interested in river/riparian areas.
