It's huge, not too crowded and still affordable to buy on. The locals are very nice and there are some great restaurants, right on the lake. So much better than Lake Lanier.

Nice and quiet. Warm water and soaring bald eagles, privileged to see a fisherman and his 20 pound stripped bass.

Beautiful lake with small islands that you can park your boat on. Some sandy areas for small children and the fishing is great!
