The lake surrounding Tellico Village was formed by Tellico Dam which diverts water from the Little Tennessee River to Fort Loudon Lake. Construction of the dam and reservoir project began March 7, 1967 and the filling of the reservoir started on November 29, 1976. The dam was completed in 1979 and is located one mile south of Fort Loudon Dam. It is 129 feet high and 3,238 feet long. The Dam created a navigational waterway up the Little Tennessee River and offers access to barges heading up the river. Tellico and Fort Loudon lakes are connected by a canal thus making a lock unnecessary. This canal creates limitless long distance cruising which makes it possible to boat to 21 states, the Gulf of Mexico or the Great Lakes. Tellico Lake consists of 15,860 acres of surface, 373 miles of shoreline and a 2,627 square miles watershed. It is located just 30 minutes southwest of Knoxville and only minutes from Maryville and Lenoir City, Tennessee.
