Recreation

Georgia’s Lake Country is in a prime location located only an hour away from Atlanta and bordered by the lush Oconee National Forest, making it the perfect weekend destination for city dwellers looking to relax and rejuvenate. If relaxing isn’t your thing, don’t worry there are lots of things to do at Lake Oconee. Play among the fish at Lake Oconee with water filled activities and rentals for the whole family like water skiing, wakeboarding, boating, fishing, and swimming. 

If you are looking for more things to do at Lake Oconee and golf is your game, Greensboro, Georgia is the place to be with over 130 holes of golf and ten world class golf courses at Lake Oconee. The rolling terrain of the area makes Greensboro, Georgia a true golfer’s getaway.

Greensboro takes its name from Revolutionary War hero Nathanael Green, and the history doesn’t end there. See historic sites and go shopping for pieces of the past at art and antique stores. After taking in the sites, playing at the lake or on the course, dine at the restaurants of Lake Oconee, take in a movie, or find more to do just a short drive down the road.
