Lake Homes Around Metro Atlanta

A landlocked state, Georgia more than makes up for that with its numerous lakes throughout the state, and there are several lakes and lake homes around metro Atlanta for residents to enjoy. Georgia Power Company began creating lakes in Georgia in the early 1900s to use as cooling structures for coal-fired electrical plants and hydropower. Additional reservoirs began to be built in the 1930s by the Tennesse Valley Authority, created by congressional charter in May 1933 when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed the Tennessee Valley Authority Act. TVA was one of the first federal hydropower agencies, and today most of the nation’s major hydropower systems are federally managed. These waterways, while created for utilities, provide recreational waterways throughout our area.

While residents can enjoy lake activities at several public parks and marinas, there are also residential communities around the lakes enabling a waterfront and lake lifestyle. While some of the waterways are drained during the winter, others provide year-round waterfront living.
