Cheatham Lake is a popular site for a variety of outdoor recreational activities.  Recreational demands and pressures associated with adjacent development increase each year, yet the total amount of public land and water remains fixed.  The public continues to agree that sound management is necessary to provide optimum use of lake resources for present and future generations. 

The 2012 Cheatham Lake Shoreline Management Plan provides policies and guidelines for the effective long-range management of the shoreline resources of the lake. The key objective of the plan is to balance private shoreline uses with the preservation of the natural environmental conditions of the lake.

The plan is posted below and copies are available to interested parties by contacting the Resource Managers Office.  Recieve a copy of Cheatham Lake's Shoreline Management Plan please call (615) 254-3734 or visiting Resource Managers Office at: 1798 Cheatham Dam Road, Ashland City, TN 37015-9805.
