Fort Loudoun Dam/Lock Tour

You’ve seen the dam from the bridge on 321, now you can see the locks up close.
Join us on a walking tour on the deck of the Ft. Loudoun Lock! Construction of Fort Loudoun Dam began in 1940 and was completed in 1943. The dam is 122 feet high and stretches 4,190 feet across the Tennessee River. The 60 by 360 foot lock at Fort Loudoun raises and lowers river craft about 70 feet between Fort Loudoun Reservoir and Watts Bar Reservoir.
Barges passing through the Fort Loudoun lock carry about half a million tons of cargo a year.
The tour lasts approximately 2 hours.
Each participant must complete a Corps of Engineers General Tour Request. You will need your driver’s license and last four digits of your social security # to complete the required form. If you sign up on-line, the Tour Request Form will be emailed to you. This form MUST be completed and returned or you will not be able to join us for the tour. This form will be available at the Socials during sign up.
