About Lake Oconee

Popular Lake Convenient to Atlanta, Augusta, the University of GA

One of Georgia's youngest manmade reservoirs, Lake Oconee was created in 1979 when the Wallace Dam was completed on the Oconee River.

 

Lake Oconee covers about 19,000 acres with 374 miles of shoreline in Greene, Morgan and Putnam counties about 60 miles northeast of Atlanta, about the same distance from Augusta, and about 30 miles from Athens, home of the University of Georgia.

 

Lake Oconee, along with its nearby sister lake, Lake Sinclair, are the core of what is sometimes called Georgia's Lake Country.

 

Extensive Recreational Opportunities

Lake Oconee has excellent opportunities for the whole family fishing, swimming, water sports, boating, camping, picnicking, waterskiing, wakeboarding, canoeing and kayaking.

 

There are plenty of campsites available, but Georgia's Lake Country is known for its luxury resorts, including the Ritz Carlton Lake Oconee, with its fine dining and day spa, and for golf, the Harbor Club Golf resort or any of the 130 holes of golf in the city of Greensboro.

 

There are special events almost year-round, including weekend summer concerts and fireworks over the lake,

 

Fishing, Hunting in National Forest

Lake Oconee's uniquely long and narrow shape produces noticeable water current throughout the lake during power generation and pump back. Fish tend to be more active and feed more aggressively when water is moving through the dam.

 

The best bets for Lake Oconee fishing include largemouth bass, white bass, striped bass, hybrid striped bass, crappie and catfish.

 

The Oconee National Forest adjoins the lake to the south, which offers miles of hiking and equestrian trails within the forest and one trail for dirt bikes and four-wheelers.

 

The area is a popular hunting area during deer season.

 

Historic Tours, and Shopping, and Weddings, Too

Greene County and the surrounding area is full of historical sites, with many walking and driving tours.

 

The small towns have a number of local shops and boutiques offering a fine collection of antiques, fashion, decorative accessories and jewelry.

 

Historic downtown Greensboro has small-town charm and a unique selection of shopping, dining and events.

 

For brides who dream of a ceremony by a lake, in a ballroom or among historic structures, the Lake Oconee area has many options to consider.

Lake Sinclair and Lake Oconee have had a piece of my heart since 1999. At that time, my husband and I lived in Atlanta and were in search of a lakefront weekend home. We had never been to these lakes but ventured there one Sunday afternoon and instantly fell in love with the lifestyle this region offered and the close proximity to Atlanta. We commuted to these lakes almost every single weekend, every summer, and any chance in between. Our best and happiest times have been spent on the lakes with family, friends, boats, campfires, cookouts, fishing poles, tents, footballs, (you get the idea)!

 

I grew up on Boone Lake in Kingsport, Tennessee and went to the University of Tennessee. I taught elementary school in both public and private schools for several years before entering into real estate.

 

In 2013, we had an opportunity to move from Atlanta to our lake home on a full time basis. I decided to move my license of 20 years from Atlanta to the Lake Sinclair / Lake Oconee market. My husband Jeff accepted a job at Gatewood School in Eatonton as an English teacher and Assistant Headmaster. Our two kids, Anna Leigh and John have adored living on the lake full time.

 

I have a great deal of personal experience with buying and selling property on these lakes. My husband and I have personally bought and sold more than a dozen properties over the years. I would love the opportunity to share my knowledge and experience with you, whether it be buying or selling.
