If you're looking for lakefront vacation or investment property an hour from Atlanta…take a look at Jackson Lake. With over 130 miles of shoreline and 4700 acres, JL offers some of the best values in waterfront homes and rentals in all of Georgia.
Nestled near several charming Georgia towns, Jackson Lake is a hidden treasure, only an hour's drive from Atlanta and Macon. If you are searching for a quieter lake with clean, deep water, plenty of fishing and water sports, without the crowds, you have found the right place. Unlike many Georgia lakes, the water levels at Jackson Lake are constant, fed by three separate rivers and cool natural springs.
Jackson Lake was created in 1910, being the largest hydroelectric dam of it's time. It continues to produce clean, renewable, hydroelectric power for the surrounding area. The lake covers nearly 5,000 acres with 135 miles of shoreline. For your fishing, boating and swimming enjoyment, boats with heads and galleys are not allowed, assuring very clean water and smooth rides without the huge waves generated by these larger vessels.
Recreation and Entertainment
Jackson Lake is very popular with boaters, skiers, swimmers and kayakers during Spring Summer and Fall, while offering calm tranquility, wildlife and beauty year round. This secluded lake has six uncommon marinas, featuring anything from fishing and food supplies, indoor and outdoor dining, weekend bands, trivia, karaoke, holiday boat parades, and poker runs, and more throughout the year.

The rural roads surrounding Jackson Lake offer quiet and safe bicycling from 20-100 mile routes for cycling enthusiasts, with rolling terrain and sparse traffic.
Life on Jackson Lake holds new wonders each day, with wildlife including Bald
Eagles that soar and fish, ducks and birds of all kinds, and the famous Goat Island near one of the main marinas.
Below the dam, the Ocmulgee river begins its journey to the Atlantic Ocean. It is great for kayaking, fishing and snorkeling. This river is truly an escape from civilization.
