Wow, what an amazing structer, hard to believe this dam was constructed out of rock and dirt and was the largest of its kind when it was built.

I love this place. Have been going here for years. Beautiful lake and beautiful houses built on lake that are awesome to see. Did a lot of boating on this lake as our children were growing up and they loved it too.

You will see lots of signs for boat rentals near Duncan Bridge Marina on Smith Lake. These signs are posted by a local crook named Don Freeman. The man is a cheat. His boats are junk and most are beyond repair. He accepts only cash...More

The lake has the clearest water, not a lot of boat traffic. We were at the beginning of a cove. We had the big water view, but not much traffic. Spent the entire week just lounging in the water. We will be back!

This lake is a beautiful place. It is a great place to fish or just a good place for recreation. There are many lovely homes on this lake too.

Went there several times and always caught 5-12 lb striped bass. It is a big lake and you should hire a local Guide, as they know where the fish are, as most of them fish 3 times or more a week.

I’ve had the pleasure of living on Smith Lake for the past 25 years. It meanders through three counties in Alabama each offering a different scenic view. The history of the lake is also worth noting. It’s a hydro- electric lake with the man-made earthen...More

I do not see why you could not. I did not see anyone there Kayaking & I did not either. However, the water was beautiful & it seems like it would be good, so long at you plan your put in & take out carefully.

You can get near the dam, but there are no public tours. The facility is owned and operated by Alabama Power.
