And the lakes below it, cheaho (that's not spelled right), and calderwood are beautiful. Fontana has national park service campsites on the north side and a few islands, you will need a permit for these if your camping. They can be acquired at twentymile ranger station or Fontana marina. Most of the other side is national forest land. Calderwood has campsites as well provided by alcoa aluminum company. If you don't want to camp then just heading out on the lakes in any direction is pretty. There is not a lot of access points so you really can't go wrong. Hope this helps, let me know if you need more specific ideas.
