Fontana Lake is a gorgeous lake located in Graham and Swain counties; the lake serves as a boundary for the southern border of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the northern border of the Nantahala National Forest. On a clear day, from the observation tower at Clingmans Dome the 17-mile long lake can be seen a mile below. The reservoir was created by the impounding, at the site of the Fontana Dam, of the Little Tennessee River.
The Fontana Dam is maintained and operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority. The dam measures some 480 feet high and is considered the tallest dam in the Eastern United States. The Appalachian Trail crosses the top of the dam. The lake is convenient to Bryson City and other areas nearby and is a hotspot for vacationers and part time residents that own lake getaways in the mountains.
