Best lakes in Georgia

June 03, 2022

What's the clearest lake in Georgia?

Sinclair Lake has the distinguished honor of not only being one of the best lakes in Georgia (see more of our top picks above), but also the clearest lake in Georgia. This 15,000+ acre lake just outside of Milledgeville is known for having some of the cleanest, most crystal-clear waters in all of Georgia. This man-man lake was created back when Georgia power decided to dam the Oconee River. While you won’t find this lake to be like other big lakes in Georgia brimming with restaurants and hotels, you can enjoy a bit of the quieter side of life here -- and its remoteness is part of what makes this such a clean and pristine lake to visit in Georgia!
