About Jackson Lake

Deceptively Convenient to Atlanta, Macon

Only about 10 miles off Interstate 75, northeast of Macon about 40 miles and southeast of that Atlanta area by a similar distance, the Jackson Lake area has a particularly secluded atmosphere.

 

While not one of Georgia's largest lakes, Jackson Lake covers 4,750 acres with 135 miles of shoreline in Jasper, Newton and Butts counties.

 

Jackson Lake is an irregularly shaped lake with a mostly rural shoreline, and provides a wealth of secluded coves and inlets.

 

Homes line much of the Jackson Lake shoreline, although a number of excellent residential properties remain undeveloped.

 

One of Georgia's Oldest Man-Made Lakes

Jackson Lake was formed in 1910 when the Lloyd Shoals Dam was built, making it one of the oldest lakes in the state.

 

The lake is formed by the confluence of the Yellow, Alcovy and South rivers. The Tussahaw Creek is also a significant tributary.

 

The lake's outlet below the dam is the Ocmulgee River.

 

Good Fishing for Variety of Species

From either the bank or a boat, Jackson Lake has great fishing and is well stocked with a wide variety of species, including largemouth bass, striped bass, spotted bass, hybrid bass, black crappie, white crappie, bluegill, redear sunfish, redbreast sunfish, bluegill, channel catfish, white catfish, and bullhead catfish.

 

Summer Boating and Skiing, Too

Jackson Lake is very popular with boaters, skiers and swimmers during the summer months. The lake features six marinas, as well as three public areas maintained by Georgia Power.

 

Jackson Lake has few camping facilities, but the lake's many secluded coves make for fine bird watching.

 

And for those high-tech "geocachers," an elaborate hide-and-seek outdoor game using GPS, Jackson Lake has more than 25 caches within a radius of a few miles.

beautiful small lakes in this region. His lake real estate expertise will help guide you to your perfect lake home.

 

Jackson Lake is over 100 years old, offering a natural and perhaps quieter setting, with nearby State Parks and country charm. Lake Oconee offers world class golf courses, a Ritz Carlton Hotel, and extensive upscale amenities. Both lakes, and the numerous smaller lakes, are surrounded by charming towns, amidst thousands of acres of natural forest.

 

Wally has enjoyed the area lakes since childhood, having grown up on Jackson lake, waterskiing and fishing since the age of six. He founded the Jackson Lake Homeowners Association in 1992, in an effort to bring neighbors together all over the lake. While native to Jackson Lake, and all its charm, he has been enjoying water sports, fishing and golfing amenities at Oconee with his friends for decades!

 

His deep personal knowledge of the lake front marketplace in central Georgia offers his clients a wide range of options for lifestyle and price ranges.

 

"Every buyer is unique. Our lakes offer multi-million dollar estates as well as weekend getaways in the low 100s. Our personal experience can help you narrow your search for YOUR perfect lake getaway."

 

If you're looking for lakefront vacation or investment property only a short drive from Atlanta, take a look south and east of the city. Central Georgia offer some of the best values and amenities in waterfront homes in the country.
