The day was cold and clear. The Dam was pretty basic. Was still glad we went but probably would not go again.

We saw this before going to a day use area of Blue Ridge Lake. Not a big deal, but nice to see. We just spend a few minutes here before moving where we could sit on the sand on the beach in Morganton.

I'm surprised to see this as an attraction for Blue Ridge. There is really not a lot to see. It is an average dam.

The visitor area on top of dam is on opposite side of road from lake so much of view is blocked by concrete wall. Can go to bottom of dam via a road but no view of lake from there.

Worth a quick stop on Old Route 76 just east of Blue Ridge. You can get a good view of the spillway if you step over the barrier just past the No Trespassing sign. If you take the Aksa Road/Dial Road/Route 60 loop, don't go...More

We live across from the lake. It is a TVA dam lake which is beautiful to spend the day at. Several boat ramps available.

This is an interesting stopover, with views from both the top and bottom of the dam. Steps down to the river on the lower level so you could put your feet in.

My wife and I took a drive out to see the dam. They have an area behind the dam that you can drive down to and watch the water come through the dam.
