If this dam is near your route to another attraction which it was for us, then by all means, stop by and check it out. The gift shop was closed when we went and we only spent about an hour there taking pics and just looking out into the mountains and lake. But it's something we really enjoyed viewing.

My husband and i drove over to fontanta village for a qucik trip for our anniversy. needless to say it was more like a episode of cops. we were walking around and looking at the dam and secenry. on one side of the dam was a walkway that took you to the other side -there was a part that was taped to each side of the dam-my husband walked about 50 yrds passed this next thing we know here comes the tva security the officer drives up slings his door open walks straight to my huband and asks for i.d. my husband asks whats the problem? the officer says do you work for the tva? and one question after another- we were treated as if we were terroists or something!!! so our trip started good but ended with a 125.00 tresspassing fine for my husband! so if you go to fontanta dam be on the lookout for a '"Clint Eastwood wonabee" or you will leave with a seuvoiner too!

If you live within 150 miles of this dam you should take the time to stop by and see it. It's not the hoover or anything but it is BIG!!
