Tennessee State Parks

Fort Loudoun State Park

Activities

Birding

Fort Loudoun is surrounded by Tellico Lake and is a good place for shorebirds, Osprey, and Bald Eagles. A varied landscape of forest and fields provide a diverse habitat for migratory birds. The fields are being converted to native grasses and provide an excellent habitat for “Bob White” Quail and other birds of open land.

Fishing

Tellico Lake provides decent fishing for bass and catfish. Fishing is good from the bank and the large fishing pier on site.
