Lakewood Landing Boat Launch is located on the north side of Blue Ridge Lake in Blue Ridge, GA. The lake is a 3,290 acre Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) reservoir. Blue Ridge Lake offers boating, skiing and fishing. The lake is home to bass, bream, catfish, perch and crappie, which makes the area popular with anglers. Blue Ridge reservoir is 11 miles long and has 65 miles of shoreline, 25 percent of which is developed; the balance is land in the Chattahoochee National Forest, 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.
