Fodor's Review

Another of the six lakes built by Georgia Railway and Power Co., this 2,700-acre lake is in the Chattahoochee National Forest. On the lake, at GA 197, is the Lake Burton Fish Hatchery, alongside Moccasin Creek State Park. It has trout raceways (used to raise trout from fingerlings) and a kids-only trout-fishing area. In extremely hot weather, the hatchery is sometimes closed.
