Both Walter F. George Lake and Lake George W. Andrews offer a host of recreational and sporting opportunities to the millions of people who visit each year.
Although these lakes were built to provide navigation and hydroelectric power, the emphasis is on family fun. Nestled on the Chattahoochee River in southwest Georgia, both lakes are known for camping, fishing, hunting, and boating.
