Campground Description

Nickajack is the newest main river lake of TVA. Completed in 1967, Nickajack Dam replaced Hales Bar Dam, built in 1913 by the Chattanooga and Tennessee Power Company. From historic Chattanooga, Nickajack waters flow through what is referred to as the ""Grand Canyon of the Tennessee,"" a 24-mile-long steep-walled gorge with an array of rare plant and animal species. Bass, catfish, bluegill, and crappie are among the sport fish in Nickajack Lake.
