Spring-City is a small town nestled in the rural Cumberland Mountains of Rhea County, Tennessee. Rhea County is not located along any major interstate, but it is easy to reach. And, once there, it's well worth the trip! From Chattanooga, if you take I-24 to Highway 27 North, the drive through Hamilton County to Rhea County is beautiful. This is mountain wilderness country, with lakes, forests, rock formations, gorges, springs and waterfalls. Spring City is home to Watts Bar Lake/Watts Bar Dam, which is a 39,000-acre lake with 771 miles of beautiful, rustic shoreline. The lake has superb fishing, and also has swimming and other water sports, boating, camping and hiking. The Spring City Boat Dock & Marina has pontoon and fishing boat rentals, a tackle and bait shop, camper hookups and a full service restaurant. The Stinging Fork Pocket Wilderness, located five miles northwest of Spring City, and Twin Rocks Nature Trail, located about one mile northwest of Spring City, both have hiking trails with unusual rock formations, deep gorges, forests and waterfalls. A short drive from Spring City takes you to The Cumberland Trail, Rock City and Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls, The Museum of Science and Energy in Oak Ridge and the Rugby Historic Center.

Spring City Weather & Climate

A mild climate with four seasons best describes the climate of southern Tennessee. Severe storms are infrequent in the state, being east of the center of tornado activity, south of most winter blizzard conditions, and too far inland to be affected by hurricanes. Hailstorms at a given location are observed 2 or 3 times a year. Thunderstorms are frequent in the warm season, and severe thunderstorms with damaging winds are experienced at scattered locations throughout the state each year. Summers are humid and fall is often the direst season. Winter in southeast Tennessee is generally mild and wet, and spring comes early to the state. Topography does have an affect on the general climate, and you can expect temperatures to be 10 - 20 degrees cooler on the mountaintops.
