Lake Rabun, Georgia


Lake Rabun was named after William Rabun who served in the state assembly and as president of the senate before his election as governor in 1817. He died in office in 1819. The county was named in his honor that year.

The 835-acre lake Rabun's 62 miles of shoreline. Lake Burton is the uppermost and largest lake in a series of five lakes along the Tallulah River which are operated by the Georgia Power Company. Lake Rabun is the third reservoir in a chain of lakes on the Tallulah River, which is located in the northeast Georgia mountains near Clayton.

Yet the area was attractive to Georgia Power as well. The hard rock gorges and dramatic drop made it the perfect place for a series of dams to generate power. In spite of the battle waged by environmentalists (the largest ever, in 1913), the dams were built and the river became a trickle.

The 835-acre lake has facilities for boating and fishing as well as camping and lodging. Nacoochee Park is just one of the recreation areas along Lake Rabun's 25 miles of shoreline. Located on the north end of the lake, Nacoochee Park is a great place to picnic or just relax.

Lake Rabun at full pool is 1689.6 at the Terrora Dam and is Rabun County Georgia.
