The crystal clear waters of Lake Blue Ridge, combined with the majority of the lake being in the Chattahoochee National Forest, and therefore uninhabitable, creates one of the most picturesque mountain lakes in the country. About seventy percent of the shoreline is National Forest property and cannot be privately owned. Therefore, it is easy to find a secluded area of Lake Blue Ridge, where you can drift quietly and take in the majesty of the surroundings.The 3,290 acre lake was created in 1939, when Blue Ridge Dam was constructed on the Toccoa River by the Toccoa Electric Power Company, in order to produce power for the area. Today, the lake is partially surrounded with campsites, several boat ramps, a marina, public swimming areas and a few home sites.The Toccoa River, which feeds into the lake, offers some of the best trout fishing in the South. Just below the Blue Ridge Dam is an area to launch canoes to float down the river & try your hand at catching a native Brook Trout.Homes and land with views of this gorgeous lake aren’t exactly abundant, but you can count on your Century 21 Scenic Realty agents to have the premier listings you are looking for.
