• River: Tennessee River
• Surface Area: 1,560 Acres
Little Bear Creek Reservoir was impounded in 1976 mostly as a flood control reservoir and holds 1,560 acres of water at full pool. Located approximately 13 miles WSW 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 a small amount of residential development along the shoreline of Little Bear Creek Reservoir. Camping and fishing provide the main recreational opportunities. There are three public access areas (Elliot Branch, McAffee Landing, and Williams Hollow) and two campgrounds (Elliot Branch and Williams Hollow) located on Little Bear Creek Reservoir. Lakeside cabins are also available on a peninsula of the reservoir. A BCDA fishing permit ($3/day or $20/year) is required in addition to an Alabama state fishing license. Pre-impoundment topographic maps are available for Bear Creek Reservoir through the TVA.
