Lake Blue Ridge

The Point is managed by FIND Outdoors and is part of Morganton Point Recreation Area, a beautiful campground and day-use area that sits on the shores of Lake Blue Ridge — or Blue Ridge Lake, as some may say. Locals and businesses use both name variations, but either way you say it, this area has it all. The 3,200-acre lake has an abundance of shoreline for exploration, nature-watching, and summertime fun! All that’s missing is YOU!

Lake Blue Ridge

Blue Ridge Dam

Blue Ridge Dam sits upstream near the intersection point of Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennessee. The reservoir is owned and operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority. The manmade lake was built by the Toccoa Electric Power Company in 1939 for hydroelectric power. At the time of its completion, it was the largest earthen dam in the entire Southeastern United States.

Blue Ridge Lake Recreation Area

Locals may know of the smaller day-use area, called Blue Ridge Lake Recreation Area, just across the lake from Morganton Point, on its own sheltered peninsula. The remnants of the old campground provide the perfect backdrop to walk your favorite furry friend, take the kids for a bike ride, or just stroll along the lakeside.
