Lake Oconee, Water Sports Destination

Lake Oconee offers myriad options for adventure and exploration. Kayaking with a buddy is a great way to social distance and get some healthy exercise in the open air.

The water is clean and clear, the coves are natural wonderlands, and water sports are plentiful on Lake Oconee, a Georgia Power lake created upon completion of the Wallace Dam on the Oconee River in 1979.

On any given day, visitors will see pontoon boats, jet skis, kayaks, paddle boards, and fishing boats cruising the shorelines in Greene, Putnam and Morgan Counties. At 20 miles long and at points a mile wide, every journey by water brings something new to discover. The Wallace Dam separates Lake Oconee from its sister Lake Sinclair. With an average depth of 21 feet, the lake boasts deeper areas of up to more than 200 feet.

With 374 miles of boulder-strewn and wooded shorelines, Lake Oconee is home to a wide array of wildlife including osprey, egrets, deer, beaver, ducks, reptiles ,and so much more.
