Lake Lanier

Lake Lanier, one of the most-visited US Army Corps of Engineers lakes in the country, is nestled in the foothills of northeast Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Just 30 minutes northeast of Atlanta, Lake Lanier offers the adventure of fishing, boating, sailing, water sports, golf, resort vacations, horseback riding, hiking, camping, lakeside dining and wildlife. The Lake Lanier Association serves as the voice of citizens around the lake and across the region, striving to represent all aspects and users of the lake, from recreation to fish and wildlife to homeowners. The association seeks to use a balanced approach to protect Lake Lanier, recommending reasonable solutions to issues that affect the lake, such as water quality and water quantity.
