When most people hear the phrase “cleanest and clearest water” they immediately think about the tropics. They imagine see-through light blue water shimmering under the sun, just waiting for a swim. Georgia might not have many tropical spots to visit, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t have pockets of nature that are clean and clear. Take Lake Sinclair in Georgia, for instance. Lake Sinclair is one of the clearest lakes in Georgia, which means you can eat anything you catch without any worry of contamination.

You can visit Lake Sinclair any time of year and it offers plenty to do. For more information to help plan your visit be sure to check out the official Forest Service website.
