The majority of lakes in the state of Georgia are created by dams, and most of the lakes on our list are just that. These lakes offer great fishing and recreational boating, from small quiet lakes to mammoth party lakes, whatever you are looking for can be found in the great state of Georgia.
Each lake also brings its own unique history since most of these lakes were created by the Tennessee Valley Authority Act signed into law by Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Many of the lakes actually have towns, or even bridges, under their peaceful surfaces.
