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.
