Beautiful drive to the dam, stunning mountain and lake views high up on the dam, walkways into the forest with benches to sit and rest. We've seen deer, people fishing, the most breathtaking scenery. One of our favorite walks.

This is a beautiful spot to drive to and take a walk. The Dam was not running when I went but the walkway has a beautiful view of the mountains.

Early in the mornings, the fog rolls in and out minute-to-minute. It'll conceal the lake and then reveal it again over and over. There's always a cool breeze coming off the water. Great place to walk yourself or walk your dog.

Beautiful views all around. You get to see the great camp grounds in North Carolina as you walk thru the path. The path is an even surface good for walkers, hikers, bikers and strollers. Walk the trail round trip and its about 3 miles.

This is a great spot to take an easy walk or run by the river. We went mid morning on a Saturday and it wasn’t crowded at all. We watched a plane take off from on the river, fish jumping in the lake, and birds...More

Chatuge Dam and Recreation Area has great scenic views to enjoy. We walk the paved walkway along the lake. Also looked at the water going through the gates of the dam. Plan to Walk here often.
