Georgia has some of the nicest lakes anywhere! The above is a picture I took while visiting Lake Oconee, a lake about an hour Southeast of Atlanta in Greensboro. Lake Oconee has 374 miles of shoreline and a surface area of over 18,000 acres. That's pretty large.
There are many retirement homes and seasonal homes on Lake Oconee so their owners can enjoy that gorgeous beauty. I have stayed at the Ritz Carlton Hotel right on Lake Oconee and sat around the large fire pit roasting mash mellows while watching the sun go down over the lake. This is an experience that can't be beat.
In additional to all of that, many people love Lake Oconee because the fishing is great! It has maybe the best large mouth bass fishing in the state of Georgia with 433 pounds of fish per acre, double what you normally find.
But to me as impressive as all that is, I like the scenery best, because Lake Oconee is located in a forest of trees. It is one of the most natural looking and feeling lakes I have ever visited.
