• River: Tennessee River
• Surface Area: 4,200 Acres
Cedar Creek Reservoir, impounded in 1979 as a flood control reservoir, holds 4,200 acres of water at full pool. Located nearly 10 miles west of Russellville in Franklin County, it is one of four Tennessee Valley Authority reservoirs operated by the Bear Creek Development Authority. The primary uses of this reservoir are flood control and recreation. There is some residential development along the shoreline of Cedar Creek Reservoir. Camping and fishing provide the main recreational opportunities. Five public access areas (Cedar Creek Dam, Hellums Mill, Slickrock, Britton Bridge, and Lost Creek) serve Cedar Creek Reservoir, and one campground is located at Slickrock. A BCDA use permit ($3/day or $20/year) is required in addition to an Alabama State fishing license. Pre-impoundment topographic maps are available through the TVA.
