Lake Blue Ridge
The North Georgia Mountains offer many lake options but nothing more special and more convenient than Blue Ridge Lake. This lake is the crown jewel of the mountains not only because of its deep clear waters, but because it sits a mere stone’s throw from the heart of downtown Blue Ridge, where shops, restaurants and art galleries create a culturally-rich environment throughout the year.
The crystal clear aquamarine waters of Lake Blue Ridge make it one of Georgia’s most picturesque mountain lakes. The 3,290-acre lake and surrounding area boast over 90 national forest campsites, several boat ramps, the full-service Lake Blue Ridge Marina and public swimming and picnic areas. 80 percent of the shoreline on Lake Blue Ridge is in the Chattahoochee National Forest, managed by the USDA Forest Service.
Blue Ridge Lake is 11 miles long and has 65 miles of shoreline, 25 percent of which is developed, the remaining shoreline remains pristine. The lake was formed in 1930 when the Blue Ridge Dam was constructed on the Toccoa River by the Toccoa Electric Power Company. At the time it was built, the dam was the largest earthen dam in the Southeast. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) purchased the facility in 1939 for hydroelectric power production.
