Georgia’s Lake Country

Georgia’s Lake Country is located just a little over an hour east of downtown Atlanta, 45 minutes south of the University of Georgia in Athens and 60 miles west of Augusta. This growing resort area is defined by Lake Oconee, a 19,000 acre reservoir flooded in 1980 and Lake Sinclair, just to the south.

Set in the rolling hills of Georgia’s Piedmont region, these Georgia Power Company lakes are important to the region as a source of hydroelectric power, a basin for water conservation and an attraction for wildlife. Within the surrounding counties, the nearby historic communities of Greensboro and Eatonton offer ample shopping, churches, industry and traditional small town living.

In addition, Lake Oconee’s magnificently planned gated communities offer luxury living, fabulous amenities and a comfortable recreational lifestyle that includes eight world-class golf courses, designed by some of America’s most noted golf architects.

Georgia’s Lake Country promises a unique living experience for those seeking a vacation or permanent living opportunity.
