Lake Lanier In Georgia

Lake Lanier, Georgia

Boating, camping and fishing.

Notorious for great boating and striped bass fishing, Lake Lanier AKA Lake Sidney Lanier is a great boating destination. Dozens of boat launch ramps handle pleasure boats, ski boats, jet skis, fishing boats and pontoon boats with plenty of parking. In addition to being a great striper fishery, the lake has healthy populations of catfish, bass, crappie, sunfish, walleye, perch, and gar. It is also stocked with rainbow trout. This 37,000-acre reservoir located in the upper-central portion of the state has almost 700 miles of shoreline and a bunch of islands to fish around. There are areas with public access for fishing from the bank, but the lake is ideal for fishing from a boat.
