About Clarks Hill Lake

Great Location and Near Augusta

 

Clarks Hill Lake is Georgia's largest reservoir and one of the most massive inland water bodies in the South, with more than 71,000 acres and 1,200 miles of a shoreline covered in a mix of pine trees and hardwoods.

More than 100 islands are located across Clarks Hill Lake, which extends 40 miles up the Savannah River valley and 26 miles up the Little River valley.

The lake is about 30 miles from the historic city of Augusta.

 

Fishing, Boating, Hiking, Camping, and More Outdoor Fun

 

Clarks Hill is a top-rated lake for boating and fishing, but with many open water areas, the lake is rarely crowded. Clarks Hill is a fertile lake known for some of the best bass fishing in Georgia. In addition to largemouth, striped and hybrid bass, channel and flathead catfish, crappie, and sunfish are common.

The Dorn Boating and Sportfishing Facility, the largest boat launching and sportfishing facility in the Southeastern U.S., is among the lake's amenities.

Clarks Hill Lake has many campgrounds among the finest in the East from campers who want every available comfort to those who want to rough it.

The Bussey Point Wilderness recreation area, made up of 2,500 acres located on a peninsula of the lake, has a horseback riding trail to complement its extensive hiking and mountain biking trails.

 

Visit Augusta

 

Augusta is a quaint river town located just a quick drive away from Clarks Hill Lake. The Augusta Riverwalk is an accessible path in downtown Augusta and is excellent for a fun evening full of music, food, and enjoying nature.

The Augusta Museum of History and the Morris Museum of Art are excellent places to expand your knowledge and spend the day learning.

 

The Best Place to Experience Lake Life

 

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

About Clarks Hill Lake

Georgia's Largest Lake, Extremely Popular

Clarks Hill Lake is Georgia's largest reservoir and one of the largest inland bodies of water in the South, with more than 71,000 acres and 1,200 miles of a shoreline covered in a mix of pine trees and hardwoods.

 

More than 100 islands are spread across Clarks Hill Lake, which extends some 40 miles up the Savannah River valley and 26 miles up the Little River valley.

 

The lake is about 30 miles from the historic city of Augusta.

 

Millions of people visit its many public parks, marinas, and campgrounds annually, making it one of the ten most-visited Corps lakes in the country.

 

On Savannah River and South Carolina Border

Georgia shares this reservoir with South Carolina, where it is called by its official name, J. Strom Thurmond Lake, changed by act of Congress in 1988. (In Georgia the original name was restored the next year.)

 

Clarks Hill is the first of three reservoirs on the Savannah River, along with Hartwell Lake and Richard B. Russell Lake.

 

Boating and Fishing

Clarks Hill is an extremely popular lake for boating and fishing, but with many areas of open water, the lake is rarely crowded.

 

The Dorn Boating and Sportfishing Facility, the largest boat launching and sportfishing facility in the Southeastern U.S., is among the lake's amenities.

 

Clarks Hill is a fertile lake known for some of the best bass fishing in Georgia. In addition to largemouth, striped and hybrid bass, channel and flathead catfish, crappie, and sunfish are common.

 

Waterfront Camping, Wilderness Recreation

From campers who want every available comfort to those who want to really rough it, Clarks Hill Lake has a number of campgrounds that are among the finest in the East.

 

The Bussey Point Wilderness recreation area, more than 2,500 acres located on a peninsula of the lake, has a new horseback riding trail to complement its extensive hiking and mountain biking trails.
