About Berkeley Lake
About Berkeley Lake

Berkeley Lake is an 88-acre lake located in Gwinnett County, Georgia. The lake was initially constructed in 1948 and is one of the largest earthen dams in Georgia.

It was initially used as a summer retreat and fishing spot, but it has since grown into an affluent lake community. This lake is conveniently located less than 30 miles from Atlanta.

Swimming, Boating, Hiking, and Fishing

For access to the lake and lake amenities, you must be a member of the Berkeley Lake Homeowners Association. It is an excellent area for enjoying calm days on the lake as the entire lake is a no-wake zone, and boats can only travel a maximum speed of five miles per hour. The local Homeowners Association membership can give residents access to the lakes’ boat launch.

Fishers reportedly catch a wide variety of fish species in Berkeley Lake, including smallmouth bass, bream/bluegill, blue catfish, crappie, largemouth bass, and perch.

Residents and visitors can enjoy kayaking, canoeing, walking, or nature watching in and around Berkeley Lake. With a 60-acre park, local wildlife is often spotted by residents.

Community Amenities and Local Events

A yearly Homeowners Association membership gives residents access to a variety of fun amenities. There is a community garden, bocce ball area, fire pit, lighted pavilion, and beach volleyball matches.

There is even a beach for kids to play and a large grassy area for occasional community campouts and movies. The local community chapel hosts a yearly Fourth of July celebration, where community members come together to cook food, enjoy the fireworks, watch the parade, and play games.

If you are looking for a change in pace, Atlanta is never far away. In the city, you can visit the World of Coke, the Georgia Aquarium, or eat some tasty food.

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, Berkeley Lake is an excellent choice.
