  • Clarks Hill Lake (officially known as Lake Strom Thurmond)
    The largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi River, Clarks Hill lake is one of the southeast's largest and most popular recreation lakes. Built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers between 1946 and 1954, the lake borders Georgia and South Carolina on the Savannah, Broad, and Little Rivers.
  • Lake Oconee
    Lake Oconee is one of the best largemouth bass fishing lakes in the state of Georgia. Oconee is a Creek Indian word meaning “great waters”. With an estimated 433 pounds of fish per acre, it boasts nearly double of what is normally found in other middle Georgia lakes. Lake Oconee was completed in 1979 by the impoundment of the Oconee River, which is fed by the Apalachee River and Richland Creek. Georgia Power Company formed the lake to produce hydro-electric energy. The total shoreline at full pool is measured at approximately 376 miles. Lake Oconee runs through Morgan, Greene and Putnam counties and is just north of its sister lake, Sinclair—to its south—separated only by Wallace Dam. The increasing popularity and affluence of the Lake Oconee area was recently further increased by the opening of a Ritz Carlton resort.
  • Lake Sinclair
    Near the center of the state, Lake Sinclair has provided both electricity and recreation since 1953. At approximately 17,000 acres, lake Sinclair has 417 miles of scenic shoreline with charming coves and inlets as well as long stretches of open water.
