This lake is a good location for pontoon boating and fishing.
There's just no way anyone can get bored here at Lake Petit. A good nearby hotel is Woodbridge Inn, and on a pleasant day you can take a hike along the Benton Mackaye Trail. Any time is a good time at Lake Petit if you have a thing about the outdoors. There's some flowing water close by, Blackwell Creek is a stream you can go to while you're here. Lake Petit Dam is delightful and it's near
Lake Petit, and Super 8 Jasper is a pleasant place to get some rest. There's a great category II-III segment of whitewater close by on Amicalola Creek, the 9.
