Wilson Reservoir Land Management Plan

Wilson Reservoir is an impoundment of the Tennessee River formed by Wilson Dam, which is located at Tennessee River mile 259.4. Wilson Reservoir is situated in Colbert, Lauderdale and Lawrence counties in north Alabama.

The scope of the Wilson Reservoir Land Management Plan (RLMP) is the 1,223.4 acres of TVA-managed land lying above full pool elevation along with a portion of the Muscle Shoals Reservation. The Wilson RLMP contains a regional overview, information about the environment around the reservoir and descriptions of each parcel of land. The reservoir property is divided into parcels, and each parcel is assigned a single land use allocation zone.
