Walter F. George Lake, sometimes called Lake Eufaula, stretches 85 miles up the Chattahoochee River. Visitors come to relax and play among the natural beauty of the area.
The lands surrounding the lake are forested with dense stands of mixed hardwoods. A wide variety of wildlife is commonly seen, including waterfowl, deer, squirrels, rabbits, eagles, hawks, bobcats and dozens of species of songbirds.
The historic towns of Eufaula, Alabama and Cuthbert, Georgia are nearby. Eufaula boasts more than 20 structures and districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Beautiful antebellum mansions are located throughout both towns.
The Chattahoochie River lakes are an angler's paradise, where largemouth bass, white bass, hybrids, crappie, channel catfish and bream are found. The lake's 640 miles of shoreline offer many excellent locations for bank fishing, and a boat ramp is conveniently located nearby.
The lake and its surrounding forests provide a great locale for hiking, hunting or simply observing wildlife.
