Millers Ferry is a 17,200-acre reservoir on the Alabama River impounded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1969. The official name of this impoundment is William (Bill) Dannelly Reservoir; however, it is better known locally as "Millers Ferry." There are numerous public access areas located on the reservoir. Camping facilities are available at Corps of Engineers public use areas at East Bank, Six Mile, and Chilatchee Creek. Roland Cooper State Park offers camping, cabins, and a golf course. Lodging, restaurants and tackle are available nearby in Camden.

Bisecting Alabama's Black Prairie Belt, the William "Bill" Dannelly Reservoir encompasses 105 miles of the Alabama River, from Millers Ferry Lock and Dam to the Robert F. Henry Lock and Dam.

Named for an active supporter of river development, the late Judge Dannelly of Camden, Alabama. Dannelly Reservoir was created by the construction of Millers Ferry Lock and Dam which was completed in 1970. The power plant produces enough electricity to serve more than 50,000 homes.
