About Jackson Lake

Deceptively Convenient to Atlanta, Macon

 

Jackson Lake is nestled around charming small towns that are favorites of the movie industry due to their natural beauty and incredibly friendly local people. 

 

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.

 

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.

 

Activities

 

Enjoy several local state parks, mountain biking on Dauset Trails and road cycling on miles of picturesque country roads without the hectic traffic of the city. 

 

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.

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.

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.
