Lake Lanier is located in North Georgia, just 60 miles from the state capitol of Atlanta. The 692 miles of shoreline borders the following five counties: Hall, Forsyth, Dawson, Gwinnett and Lumpkin. It was opened in 1957 after construction was completed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Today, Lake Lanier is a multi-purpose lake that is still operated by the Corps of Engineers.

The lake serves many important functions such as hydroelectricity, navigation, flood control, wildlife management and provides a water supply; however, you can find most natives to the area talking about the fishing, boating and parks that are home to the 38,000 acres of Lake Sidney Lanier. It’s estimated that there are over seven million visitors to the lake annually, all of whom are exploring the beauty of the North Georgia region and the recreational opportunities available.


  Situated along the shores of Georgia’s Great Lake, just 45 minutes outside of Atlanta, Lanier Islands features 1,500 scenic acres, beckoning to families and corporate groups alike.  It is great to visit Lake Lanier but imagine living just minutes from all this fun and adventure?  Whether it is a lazy boat ride, fishing, a round of golf or a horseback ride or one of Lanier World’s numerous activities, you will love living just down the road.  At Lake Lanier, there is always  more reasons to return.
