About this lake


With several million visitors annually enjoying its recreational facilities, Lake Lanier is the most popular lake in the southeast. You will enjoy the time you spend at Lake Lanier. We guarantee it. Lanier 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. The completion of the Buford Dam on the south end of the lake in 1956 turned the area’s Chattahoochee and Chestatee Rivers into Lake Lanier.
