The view from the bottom is pretty impressive. The steep gorge it is built in makes for good scenery

While we were staying in Murphy we passed the damn on the way to a day trip at the falls. Made a stop on the way back and enjoyed the beautiful view of Lake Hiwasee.

It was a wonderful day with a smooth lake and even had fisherman in a boat at the bottom of the dam. The view of the area around the lake is so serene.

The dam is amazing but not really a recreational spot......restrooms and some picnic tables and that is about the extent of it. Looking at the power of the dam and the water is pretty special though.

A great and beautiful attraction to visit. The lake is pristine and almost unviolated by inhabitants and civilization. A sight for sore eyes.

I was unable to find a street address for the dam itself, but I was able to get directions by looking for Hiwassee Dam on Google Maps. It's a very quiet place with few visitors. This must be one of those roads less traveled. There...More

Yes, at the base of the dam there is a picnic spot. We fished there (or tried to) but the current was moving too fast. There is an area close by where you can rent a boat and fish on the lake.
