About Lake Spivey

Lake Spivey is the largest privately owned lake in Georgia, located just 20 miles south of Atlanta. The lake covers up to 600 acres and has a maximum depth of approximately 50 feet. It was formed by Walter Boone Spivey in 1957 after the completion of the dam on Rum Creek.

 

Originally the lake was open to the public for day use and saw as many as 500,000 visitors per year, but in 1984 the lake was deeded to the Lake Spivey Civic Association. Now lake use is restricted to residents who live on the lake, making Lake Spivey a very private and much sought after real estate location.

 

Today there are eight residential communities on the lake including: Lake Spivey Estates, Lost Valley, Bay View, South Bay, The Landings, Forest Estates, Edgewater, and North Shore. Each community has a marina or other lake access and docking point located around the lake.

 

Popular activities on the lake include boating, jet skiing, water skiing, wakeboarding, canoeing, kayaking, tubing, fishing, and swimming. There is a permanent slalom water skiing course located near the dam, and is very popular during the summer months.

 

Other amenities include the Lake Spivey Golf Club and golf course, local tennis courts, swimming pools, and hiking trails. Fishing is also common, with Lake Spivey being an excellent source of largemouth bass, hybrid striped bass, and large channel catfish. It also holds the Georgia state record for largest black crappie.

 

Lake Spivey is an ideal location for those looking for exclusive resort living on gorgeous waters, located only minutes away from the heart of Atlanta!

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.
