MELTON HILL LAKE LAKEFRONT HOMES
Melton Hill Lake is surrounded by Anderson, Knox, Roane and Loudon counties in East Tennessee. It covers 5,690 acres, 173 miles of shoreline and runs 57 miles in length from Melton Hill Dam to Norris Lake Dam. Melton Hill was TVA’s 21st river control project. It serves the purpose of producing electric power, navigation, recreation and maintaining an adequate supply of water. Because it is not used for flood control the level fluctuates only about five feet throughout the year.
The area around Melton Hill offers year-round camping plus sheltered picnic tables and pavilions. Two boat ramps, one below the dam and one above, give boaters’ access to Watts Bar Reservoir as well as Melton Hill Reservoir. Roads on both sides of the river are popular for walking, jogging, or bike riding. Game fish in the reservoir include sauger, crappie, and bass.
