Lake Blue Ridge blog80 percent of Lake Blue Ridge shoreline is in the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Lake Blue Ridge in North East Georgia is a gorgeous crystal clear aquamarine lake in Fannin County & is Georgia’s most picturesque mountain lakes. Many enjoy water sports, boating, fishing and lake fun at this Summer time hot-spot. The 3,290-acre lake is surrounded by campsites, several boat ramps, a full-service marina and public swimming and picnic areas. Lake Blue Ridge is a reservoir & 11 miles long and has 65 miles of shoreline, 25 percent of which is developed. The remaining land in the Chattahoochee National Forest is managed by the U.S. Forest Service. The lake was formed when Blue Ridge Dam was constructed on the Toccoa River in 1930 by the Toccoa Electric Power Company. At the time it was built, the dam was the largest earthen dam in the Southeast. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) purchased the facility in 1939 for hydroelectric power production.

There are many access points to Lake Blue Ridge – Recreation Area & boat ramp, Morganton Point Recreation Area, Lakewood Landing Boat Ramp, Lake Blue Ridge Dam & the full service Blue Ridge Marina.
