• Surface Area: 110 Acres
Carroll County Thousand Acre Recreation Lake is located along US Highway 70 between the towns of Jackson and Huntingdon, the county seat of Carroll County. Entry to the lake is from Highway 70, via Baker Road to Reedy Creek Road, to the lake office, beach and boat ramp. If you're visiting the West Tennessee area, a stop at Carroll County 1000 Acre Recreation Lake is a must.
Two public sand beaches have been constructed, and swimming areas will be marked off with buoys. Public restroom/bathhouse facilities have been built. The lake will be open for waterskiing, tubing, pontooning, sailing and most water sports. No-wake zones will be marked.
A dam constructed across Reedy Creek created Carroll County Thousand Acre Lake. The lake's construction addressed the county's need for a recreational resource and its need to remediate environmental concerns. Because of long years of farming, straightening of creeks, and draining of wetlands, the watershed experienced erosion and flooding. From a place that early settlers referred to as having '50 bushel of frogs per acre', many acres of wetlands disappeared. Carroll County was in decline, with little recreation to attract visitors and new development. Although the new reservoir drowned 100+ acres of remaining wetlands, 300 acres along the shoreline, previously drained for farming, will be returned to wetland with the planting of mixed wetland trees to welcome wildlife. Additional remediation involved nearby Crooked Creek. Although the creek had been straightened in previous years, destroying acres of wetlands, 2.3 miles of the creek have been restored to its natural meandering course.
Six federal and state agencies were involved in the project, including the US Army Corps of Engineers, which resulted in the largest mitigation in the history of the Corp's southeast region. The project was so successful that the Carroll County Watershed Authority and its consulting engineer, J. R. Wauford & Company Consulting Engineers, Inc., were recognized as Grand Award winners by the American Council of Engineering Companies of Tennessee for the design of the Carroll County 1000-Acre Recreation Lake project.
