• River: Little Conecuh River
• Surface Area: 2,767 Acres
Located in the Gantt Community, north of the City of Andalusia in Covington County, just off State Highway 29. The reservoir impounds the Conecuh River, and is approximately 2,700 acres in size with 21 miles of shoreline. The River Falls Power Company constructed Gantt Dam in the 1920s, but it is now operated by Alabama Electric Cooperative for hydropower generation. The Gantt watershed is relatively infertile; therefore, the reservoir does not support high standing crops of gamefish. The shoreline is heavily developed; and the lake is used primarily for boating, swimming, and skiing. A public boat launch is located on Highway 29 in the Clearview Community. Detailed maps of Gantt Reservoir may be obtained from the Alabama Electric Cooperative in Andalusia.
