Lake Oconee is a recreational lake located midway between Atlanta and Augusta. The lake is over 19,000 acres of water and 374 miles of shoreline.
One of the main reasons people love to visit Lake Oconee is because of the water. The lake is the number one reason people come to Lake Oconee and for good reason. There is nothing like the clear, crisp water surrounded by magnificent Georgia pines and hardwoods and the soft shoreline that keeps visitors coming back again and again.
Here is my list of the top things to do on the water at Lake Oconee:
The jumping rock at Lake Oconee is a real crowd-pleaser. It’s one of the most adored places around Lake Oconee and recently was the site of a couples wedding nuptials. This beloved location stands 10 feet tall on the south end of the lake before you get to the dam. Jumping Rock is only accessible by water. Visitors pull their boats up to the rock, climb on and start enjoying the fun.
What would lake living be like without a little fishing? Lake Oconee offers an abundance of natural shoreline to fish from, not to mention taking out your boat and reeling them in. Lake Oconee is over 19,000 acres so having a fishing guide can be a huge help when you are out on the water since they know the lake and can make the trip a successful one.
Lake Oconee is an all sports lake. You can ski, tube, wakeboard and wake surf. There are several companies that provide private lessons so you can learn and have fun while out on the water. We also have several companies that rent boats and jet skis.
