There is tremendous variety among Georgia's forty-odd lakes, many with dramatic shorelines and mountainous backdrops in the north end of the state, others with great expanses of open water.
There are hundreds of fine spots for fishing, others for great boating, campsites, picnic areas, lakes maintained by the public through the Army Corps of Engineers, Georgia Power, or the Tennessee Valley Authority, and a few that are privately owned.
The vast majority of Georgia's population lives only minutes from a Georgia lake, and the tens of thousands of miles of shoreline along Georgia lakes offers almost unlimited opportunity for the weekend lake enthusiast and the empty-nester alike.
For the lake enthusiast, Georgia offers enormous public bodies of water like Clarks Hill, Hartwell, Seminole and Walter F. George, shared with the state's neighbors, or Lake Sidney Lanier, its 38,000 acres enjoyed by more than 7.5 million people each year. Georgia is also home to a number of lakes smaller than 200 acres.
Georgia lakes offers an amazing variety of scenic waterfront real estate, from lake home property on inlets hidden among the Blue Ridge Mountains to expansive water leading to the Atlantic Ocean.
Georgia has every opportunity for shoreline living, whether you need a second home for a weekend respite, a dependable cottage rental or a retirement community with any variety of amenities.
For any style of living, there's a piece of land on a Georgia lake for you.
