Lake Oconee vacation accommodation is located next to a large man-made lake in Central Georgia, which is protected as part of the Oconee National Forest. With a quiet, upscale atmosphere, it’s the ideal place to go if you’re in search of some relaxation or outdoor adventure, with all kinds of recreation offered both on the lake and its shore.
On holiday at a condo in Lake Oconee you’ll be able to take part in a variety of activities, but perhaps the most popular is fishing. It’s regarded as one of the best fishing spots in the whole of the southeast United States thanks to a unique combination of environmental factors. Crappie, bream, catfish and a range of bass species are especially abundant, with two and a half times more fish per acre than any other lake in the region. Other kinds of boating are also available, thanks to the presence of a large sand bar that extends out to the water. On the shore you could take walks and bike rides to enjoy the extensive wooded areas surrounding the lake. The preserved nature here supports rich birdlife and many people head for Lake Oconee self-catering accommodation for exactly that reason, as its possible to spot species of eagles, woodpeckers, ospreys and hummingbirds with relative ease. Another of Lake Oconee’s claims to fame is its fantastic golf courses - the courses here are well tended and renowned for their spectacular scenery, and while many are private, there are two excellent public options to be found. Cuscowilla and the Harbor Club offer fairways enclosed by thick forest and occasionally offering views of the lake and neighboring creeks.
Just an hour north of self-catering vacation rentals in Lake Oconee is the city of Athens. It’s a destination that is known for its culture and is home to an important university, and here you’ll find the Georgia Museum of Art as well as the Georgia Museum of Natural History.
Lake Oconee vacation accommodation is set just inside the humid subtropical zone, which makes for long, warm summers and moderate winters. In July and August daytime highs reach well above 30 degrees, while daytime temperatures in December and January tend to reach the low-teens.
