About Lake Lanier
Lake Lanier is the most popular lake in the southeast. Not only is it the most popular, it is the largest lake in Georgia, having nearly 700 miles of shoreline spread over 38,000 acres. The water in Lake Lanier comes from Georgia’s Blue Ridge Mountains. The rain falls on the mountains, runs over beautiful waterfalls, and then makes its way down to Lake Lanier via the Chattahoochee and Chestatee Rivers. Formed by the completion of the Buford Dam on the south end of the lake in 1956; it turned the area’s Chattahoochee and Chestatee Rivers into Lake Lanier. Lake Lanier offers something for everyone. Though the most popular activities include fishing, boating and camping, Lake Lanier has options for the whole family. Lake Lanier has golfing facilities, as well as the world’s best kayaking, water skiing, and swimming spots.
