About Jackson Lake

Perfectly Secluded

 

About 10 miles off Interstate 75, northeast of Macon, and about 45 miles southeast of Atlanta, the Jackson Lake area has a particularly secluded atmosphere. This lake's irregular shape helps to give it a mostly rural shoreline and provides a wealth of secluded coves and inlets.

This 4,750-acre body of water has 135 miles of shoreline and 2,300 homes.

 

One of Georgia's Oldest Lakes

 

Jackson Lake was formed in 1910 when the Lloyd Shoals Dam was built, making it one of the oldest human-made lakes. The lake is owned and operated by the Georgia Power Company.

The lake is formed by the confluence of the Yellow, Alcovy and South rivers. Tussahaw Creek is also a significant tributary.

 

Recreational Uses

 

On Jackson Lake, visitors and residents can spend the day boating, swimming, fishing, and practicing water sports. The lake is regarded as a fishing utopia. Fishers can catch Largemouth Bass, Striped Bass, Spotted Bass, Hybrid Striper, Black Crappie, White Crappie, Bluegill, Redear Sunfish, Redbreast Sunfish, Channel Catfish, White Catfish, and Bullhead Catfish. Don't forget your fishing license!

Hiking, bird watching, and even geocaching are popular outdoor activities to experience on Jackson Lake.

The lake features six marinas, as well as three public areas maintained by Georgia Power.

 

Spend time in Atlanta or Athens

 

Atlanta is home to several museums, including the High Museum of Art, the Fernbank Museum and 3D Theater, the Atlanta History Center, the Children's Museum of Atlanta, and more.

Athens is home to The State Botanical Garden of Georgia. The Garden contains eleven botanical and horticultural collections spanning 313 acres.

 

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, Jackson Lake is an excellent choice.

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.

 

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.

 

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.
