• Surface Area: 3,930 Acres
Chatuge Lake is a 7,000 acre reservoir impounded by the Chatuge Dam, located 121 miles above the mouth of the Hiwassee River, just north of the North Carolina-Georgia state line. The lake extends southward for 13 miles along the Hiwassee and eastward for roughly 6 miles along Shooting Creek, which once emptied into the Hiwassee immediately upstream from the dam site. The dam and the North Carolina section of the reservoir are surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest, and the Georgia section of the reservoir is surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest. Hayesville, North Carolina (north of the dam) and Hiawassee, Georgia (to the south) are the nearest communities of note. Chatuge Dam is a flood control and hydroelectric dam on the Hiwassee River in Clay County, in the U.S. state of North Carolina. The dam is the uppermost of three dams on the river owned and operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority, which built the dam in the early 1940's for flood storage and to provide flow regulation at Hiwassee Dam further downstream. While originally built solely for flood storage, a generator installed at Chatuge in the 1950's gives the dam a small hydroelectric output.
