Lake Lanier is
located in Georgia.

Just a 30 minute drive from the city of Atlanta, Lake Lanier is the largest lake in the State of Georgia with nearly 700 miles of shoreline spread over 38,000 acres. The lake is fed by the Blue Ridge Mountains, where the rain falls, runs over beautiful waterfalls, and then makes its way down to Lake Lanier via the Chattahoochee and Chestatee Rivers.

 

The History of Lake Lanier.

As Atlanta grew, so did its need for power, water and to diminish the floods that plagued the city, so the council decided to greenlight the Buford Dam’s construction. The dam would provide resources to Atlanta and strengthen commerce. Unfortunately, there were several small towns in the area that were occupied by farmers, Oscarville was one of the more well known towns. With the completion of the Buford Dam in 1956, Lake Lanier was finally filled in 1959 and the town of Oscarville became virtually non-existent, along with all the other towns! The lake is 152-feet deep at its lowest point, with building foundations and forests with trees as tall as 60 feet that still exist at the bottom!
