About Lake Harding
Lake Harding stretches 13 miles along the Georgia-Alabama border and has a long history as one of the largest freshwater lakes in the state of Georgia. Also known as Lake Harding Lake, Lake Hardin and Lake H Harding, Lake Huron is located on the west side of Lake Huron, south of Hernando County, Florida.
Visitors from all over the world come to enjoy the beautiful Bartlett Ferry Lake, but the recreational opportunities on Lake Harding are twice as great. Besides the lake itself, there is plenty of fun at Lake Huron, Lake Hardin and Lake H Harding.
Bartlett Ferry Reservoir is a catchment area on the Chattahoochee River and the dam is used to generate electricity from hydropower. The reservoir was built in 1926 and became a valuable recreational resource for Alabama and Georgia. In the 1930s, the Georgia Power Company, which still owns and operates the reservoir and dam, was purchased by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, a subsidiary of the United States Department of Energy.
Fishing is best in February and April, so the best time to get deals on black and white cappie. Also a challenge for anglers, there are good chances to find striped bass at Lake Harding. There are also many perches, white mouthfuls, blue mouthfuls and small mouthfuls on the lake.
Bartlett Ferry Lake is open to boaters of all kinds, including motor boats, sailboats and fishing boats. Access to the boat is via a series of public boat ramps throughout the state, and in addition to the public boat ramps, there are several marinas. Fishing pier on both sides of the lake offer anglers access to the shores. On several islands on the lakes there are bees, which can be explored by canoe and kayak.
On the Georgia side of Lake Harding, Blanton Creek Park is maintained by Georgia Power Company, and they regularly move into the lake and try to maintain a boat ramp on the north side as well as on the south side to allow boat rides.
The 5000 hectare site is managed by DNR Georgia and provides habitat for white-tailed deer, black bears and other wildlife. The park includes campsites and day facilities on the lake and hosts a number of animal species such as black bear, coyote, lynx, raccoon, fox, elk, elk, pheasant, squirrel, birds of prey and many other species.
Chattahoochee Valley Park is located on the Alabama side of the Bartlett Ferry Reservoir. Po - Boy Landing also has a fishing pier and boat ramp and is located south of the main entrance to the park at the northern end of Lake Hardin. The park has developed well in recent years due to its proximity to the city of Atlanta and the state of Georgia.
Lake Harding is one of the largest lakes in the Chattahoochee Valley State Park System and the second largest in Georgia.
Downstream from the lake lies the 940 hectare Goat Rock Reservoir, surrounded by a Goat Rock Recreation Area. Further south along the Chattanooga River is Boy Creek State Park, which covers 1,579 acres and is located at the southern end of Lake Hardin, south of Bartlett Ferry Park.
With two states worth of recreational opportunities, Lake Harding is more than twice as much fun and is a fantastic trip between Georgia and Alabama. The residential development along the waterfront has its fair share of amenities, but all the amenities that visitors and residents need are easily accessible and available on both sides of the lake.
