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.

Wally Cawthon is a real estate expert, specializing in waterfront properties in central Georgia since the early 1990s.

 

Jackson Lake is by far THE BEST LAKEFRONT VALUE IN THE SOUTH! Offering families a true "On Golden Pond" experience, while enjoying all water sports in a quieter, safer setting. No alligators here, and no big crowds!

 

Wally lives and works on Jackson Lake. His waterfront real estate expertise will guide you to your perfect lake home, with no surprises after closing! Lakefront property has many idiosyncrasies, including shoreline and building codes, septic systems and many other items that are not common in regular property sales. You will want to choose someone who is a true expert. Wally founded the volunteer Jackson Lake Homeowners Association in 1994 to bring neighbors together all over the lake. What began with a group of about 60 has blossomed to nearly 1,000 members now, a quarterly newspaper, scholarship programs and much more.

 

Jackson Lake is 100 years old, encompassing 135 miles of shoreline and 2,300 homes. With three rivers and one creek flowing into it, the water level remains consistent year-round. It offers a quiet, natural setting, with nearby state parks, charming towns, and thousands of acres of natural forest to soothe the soul.

 

Wally and his buyer's agent Charles Sibley have enjoyed Jackson lake since childhood! Waterskiing, paddling the rivers, fishing, floating, swimming, and the latest craze, wake surfing! Wally says, "Our deep personal knowledge of the lakefront marketplace in central Georgia offers our clients a wide range of options for lifestyle and price ranges."

 

"Every buyer is unique. Our lakes offer 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 of the city. Central Georgia offer some of the best values in waterfront homes in the country.
