Located in the central region of Georgia, on the Oconee River, Lake Sinclair stretches through the counties of Baldwin, Hancock, and Putnam, Lake Sinclair was created in 1953. With approximately 417 miles of scenic shoreline, winding coves and inlets as well as several vast stretches of open water, Lake Sinclair has plenty to offer for recreation and boating pleasure. The lake is made up of a 15,330-acre area of water and provides both electricity and recreation. Milledgeville, Georgia, is the largest city on Lake Sinclair.
Lake Sinclair is largely used by lake residents and people who live and house their boats, watercraft and RVs on the lake – thus access is as easy as lowering their watercraft into the water. For day or weekend visitors, Georgia Power provides two public boat ramps for public access to water recreation. There are also marinas and boat storage areas located on the lake. There are other areas of access to the lake including Oconee Springs Park and several "secret" public access areas. Lake Sinclair is the site of several fishing tournaments - both local and national - and attracts fisherpersons of various skill levels and interest. Visitors find fall and winter fishing at Lake Sinclair a special treat due to the mild climate and activity. There is also a popular fishing area below the dam near Milledgeville. Several recreation areas, such as Oconee Springs Park and Rocky Creek Park, provide day-use facilities that include picnic tables, grills, boat ramp and a small beach. There is camping and even cabin rentals provided at Oconee Springs Park, but not Rocky Creek Park.
Lake Oconee is a reservoir in central Georgia on the Oconee River near Greensboro and Eatonton. It is operated by Georgia Power. It was created in 1979 when Georgia Power completed the construction of the Wallace Dam on the Oconee River. Lake Oconee is also the second largest lake in the state of Georgia. Lake Oconee runs through Georgia's Morgan, Greene, and Putnam counties and is separated from its sister lake, Sinclair, by Wallace Dam.
Numerous upscale housing developments and resorts communities have been built on the banks of the lake since 1979, including Harbor Club, Reynolds Plantation, Galingayle and Cuscowilla. Lake Oconee is also well-known for its golf courses, including Harbor Club which was awarded by Golfweek "top 10 places to play in Georgia" in 2009 and the Golf Club at Cuscowilla, ranked in the top 3 "Best Residential Courses" by Golfweek magazine since 2002.
