Lake Sinclair

Here is a refreshing idea, spend the day on the water and if you need to cool off, just jump in! The kids and kids-at-heart will love bouncing the waves on a jet ski or casting a rod to catch the big one!

Lake Sinclair encompasses 15,300 acres of winding coves and several vast stretches of open water. Created by Georgia Power in 1953, Lake Sinclair is two hours southeast of Atlanta making it easy access for fishing, tournaments, swimming, boating, camping, and has several marinas for the convenience of visitors. If you don't have a boat, no problem, many area marinas rent them by the half or full day. For boat rentals and fishing guides try Sinclair Marina. Boats and jet skis are available from Twin Lakes Jet Ski as well as Jere Shai Lakeside.

Recently declared the "Cleanest Lake in the State", Lake Sinclair boasts over 500 miles of scenic shoreline and with Milledgeville's mild climate, you will find watercrafts of all shapes and sizes on the lake year-round. Campgrounds, boat ramps, picnic areas and unsupervised beaches add to the enjoyment of Lake Sinclair.

Lake Sinclair will begin its scheduled homeowner maintenance drawdown on Monday October 26th, 2020. The lake will lower approximately 6” per day until the target level of 335’ M.S.L is reached (5’ below full pool). The lake will then fluctuate between the range of 335’ and 337’ M.S.L. daily until November 29th. Lake levels are dictated by inflows so please be aware that heavy rain events could raise the lake level above this operating range.
