Slight threadjack..........

What lakes near Atlanta would you guys recommend to live on full time? We may want to move down that way someday (15 years +/-) and it would be nice to be on a lake not too far from Atlanta. Water would have to be nice for skiing/boarding most of the time.
Suggestions?

Good Luck with that. Lanier is busy as heck most of the time except for mornings and evenings during the week. I'm not sure about Allatoona. Lake Oconee, Sinclair, and Jackson, which are on the east side of Atlanta would probably be the best bets. But, thats talking about today, so who knows about 15 years from now

Alatoona is almost as busy as Lanier on the weekends the only good water is before 9am or after 7pm. Monday through Thursday is great until about about 11am. One other consideration for Alatoona is that the Army Corps of engineers drops the lake levels (almost dry) after Memorial day.

Wow, sounds like your lakes are busier than most.
I've heard good things about Oconee.

Lk Blue Ridge isn't always smooth (IT HAS SEA WALLS) incase U haven't noticed. :twocents:
I've been there and footed Blue Ridge, the waters are both clear and cold.

Lake Russell in Elberton. The GA state park side is ok but the SC side is better. A boat ramp and marina off GA 72 NE of Elberton called Clifford's is great. I've never seen a lot of boats unless its a holiday, fishing tour or in the state parks for some kind of event. Check it out 'Richard B. Russell Lake'. Calhone Falls is the SC Side state park. We go as often as possible. We would be happy to give you a pull.

Oconee and Burton are about the same distance from Atlanta depending on where in Atlanta you live. Neither lake drops due to drought since all the big wigs in the Southern Company (which owns the lakes) have houses on them. Same problem for skiing on both, seawalls. Nice lakes though. We go to Burton often in the Summer months.
