Destination guide

Thank you kindly for having Georgia on your mind!

Lake Oconee in the Lake Country area of Georgia is well-known for its history and first-class golf, as well as its down-home southern dining and hospitality. You can fish until your heart's content or frustrate yourself with lakeside golf, all within easy reach of your Lake Oconee vacation rental. Put yourself at ease with some gravy 'n biscuits, grits and pecan pie, all served up with a side of refreshing sweet tea. Or just soak up the sunshine and summer concerts; it's up to you!

Things to do

Old cars, live theater & a ghost town? All at Lake Oconee

History buffs are sure to love the Greek Revival style Green County Courthouse, where you can glimpse into the life of a real sheriff at L.L. Wyatt Museum. The Old Gaol is an 1807 granite jail. You can also explore ghost town ruins at Scull Shoals (if you dare!). Festival Hall and Oconee Performing Arts Society regularly offer live performances, and there are vintage vehicles at Memory Lane Classic Cars, and a hoppin' annual rock ’n roll cruise. And you won't want to miss the summer weekend Live at the Lake concert series.


Well won’t you just have the most fun we’ve ever seen!

Lake Oconee is never short of adventure options. You can go boating, wakeboarding, jetskiing or take out a pontoon boat to try and catch a largemouth bass, Georgia’s official state fish. Back on land, you can still enjoy water views from several picturesque lakeside golf courses. Play some tennis or get your adventure on at Durhamtown Off Road Resort. Go antique shopping, pamper yourself with a spa treatment, then sit a spell while enjoyin’ some down-home cooking where you can savor grits, barbequed delicacies and deep-fried-just-about-everything. And sweet tea.


Summertime weather is sweet as a peach in Georgia

Lake Oconee vacation rentals are most popular during the summer season, when an annual 217 days of sunshine brings temperatures in the low to upper 90s. But, this also means it’s gonna be muggy, so be sure to reapply that sunblock frequently. Winter brings wet weather with temperatures ranging from the high 30s to the mid 50s. But, the most pleasant times of year to visit are during the spring and fall months, where you’ll get the added bonus of lower prices - a win-win!

Natural features

Yes ma'am, we enjoy huntin'. And fishin'. And fox squirrels.

Lake Oconee borders the Oconee National Forest and boasts 374 miles for shoreline for visitors to explore. This dam-formed reservoir is wildly popular for hunting, so don't forget to wear your finest camouflage (or bright orange if you want to be spotted). The area is home to deer and adorable fox squirrels, and you may see the occasional cougar, but not if they see you first, as they don’t like people. And there are about 100 bird species for you to ponder.
