Lake Oconee is a reservoir in central Georgia on the Oconee River, and is operated by Georgia Power. It was created in 1979 when Georgia Power completed the construction of the Wallace Dam. The lake is the forth largest in the state.

Upscale housing developments and resorts communities have been built on the banks of the lake since 1979. The lake is also well-known for its golf courses amoung other recreational activities. Bird watching is also a great activity around the lake with frequent spottings of hummingbirds, ospreys, eagles, woodpeckers, and other birds. Lake Oconee is Georgia's second largest lake, bringing in water enthusiasts to wakeboard, tube, ski, fish, swim and play outside.
