Blue Ridge dam is a hydraulic dam which generates electricity at a capacity of about 22 megawatts. It has a long history as it is regarded as one of the first most modern power dams. A small hill separates the dam which is worth viewing. This is the uppermost dams of the four dams that can be found on the Toccoa/Ocoee River that is owned and operated by Tennessee valley Authority. This dam impounds to about 3,300 acres Blue Ridge Lake which is located at the south-western fringe of Blue Ridge Mountains. Launch sites for canoe and kayak below the dam allows non-motorised boaters to navigate into Toccoa River. Chasttahooche national forest by Blue Ridge dam is worth exploring.
