This good lake has 42 square miles of surface area and 550 miles of shoreline.
The beautiful marina of Beaver Dam Marina is a nice place to leave dry land behind. Dry warm beds await you at Magnuson Hotel Elberton; Richard B. Russell State Park is a wonderful spot to stretch your legs a bit. Lake Russell is magnificent enough to spend more than a day at, Sunset Ridge Campground is a magnificent local campground. If you need a location to stay Days
Inn Elberton is a glorious choice, and a striking lake like Secession Lake is a great site to take a look at. Why not pop by Lake Russell Dam while you're here, and do take a look at Hartwell Lake, it's a gorgeous lake.
