About Lake Martin

Short trip from Atlanta, Birmingham, Montgomery

Considered by many to be the "South's best kept secret," Lake Martin is conveniently located in east Alabama.

 

This lake is only a short drive from Birmingham, Atlanta, Montgomery and Auburn.

 

Among Largest Man-Made Lakes, with 750 Miles of Shoreline

One of the largest man-made lakes in the country, Lake Martin covers 44,000 acres with more than 750 miles of wooded shoreline in Tallapoosa, Elmore and Coosa counties of east central Alabama.

 

Clear Water, Boating, Swimming, Camping, Skiing and Golf

Lake Martin is known for its clear water, gorgeous landscape, along with many interesting islands and unique rock formations.

 

It's popular across the South as an excellent location for boating, swimming, fishing, water skiing, camping and golfing.

 

The 1,455-acre Wind Creek State Park provides some 600 campsites, a marina, hiking trails, a fishing pier, and many great picnic spots.

 

Tournaments, Festivals and Fireworks

Lake Martin hosts a number of annual events, including fishing tournaments and a fireworks show on the Fourth of July.

 

The Alexander City Jazz Festival is a June event that takes place in both the Lake Martin Amphitheatre and downtown Alexander City.

 

In 2009 Lake Martin was the main site of AquaPalooza, "the world's largest boating party."

 

Explore Beaches, Restaurants, "Kowaliga," Amazing Rock Formations and More!

There is much to explore at Lake Martin, eagles' nests, natural sand beaches, restaurants, camping areas and popular islands.

 

The lake has several landmarks, such as the Kowaliga Bridge, and several marinas, but perhaps the most recognized landmarks on the lake are Chimney Rock and Acapulco Rock, two large natural formations.

 

This area was part of the Tallapoosa River gorge before the lake was built, and the water here can be more than 150 feet deep.

 

When completed in 1926, "Cherokee Bluffs" was the largest man-made body of water in the world. It was renamed ten years later for then-president of Alabama Power, Thomas Martin.

 

Whether you are looking to buy a family home, a full-time retirement residence, waterfront property or find a shoreline vacation rental, Lake Martin is an excellent choice.
