Lake Walter F. George occupies an impressive 85 miles of the Chattahoochee River, separating Alabama and Georgia with 48,000 acres of freshwater perfect for boating, fishing, skiing and swimming. Also, with 640 miles of shoreline, 13 Corps of Engineers day-use parks and four adjoining campgrounds, the lake is an ideal place for camping, outdoor and water-related activities.
