At 19,000 acres and 374 miles of pristine shoreline, Lake Oconee is Georgia’s second largest lake. The lake is fed by the Oconee and Appalachee Rivers and a number of creeks, but most importantly its waters never fluctuate more than 18 inches and are pumped down and filled back daily by Georgia Power. But most importantly, this lake provides the first catch for many grandchildren, sees kids of all ages skirting along its waters in tubes or jet skis and offers some of the greatest backdrops for golfers that you will find anywhere in the Southeast.
There are numerous ways to enjoy the waters of this beautiful freshwater lake:
- Largemouth Bass, Hybrids and Crappie (among others) feed on the constant movement of the waters managed by Georgia Power and often find cover under the many docks along the shores of Lake Oconee – giving anglers ample opportunity to land “the big one.”
- Multiple marinas allow for boating, jet skiing, wakeboarding or kayaking trips on the lake.
- There are three 85-acre parks in the area that allow camping, picnics and beach access.
- Harbor Club’s 9 miles of shoreline give its members a number of ways to access the waters or simply enjoy a breathtaking sunset cast upon the lake
