History of Lake Lanier

Lake Lanier was created after the Buford Dam was built on the Chattahoochee River in 1956. It has grown to a surface area of 59 square miles of water and 692 miles of shoreline. The lake is in Hall, Forsyth, Dawson, Gwinnett, and Lumpkin counties and has become a popular destination for all things boating related. This includes boating, jet-skiing, rowing, and canoeing.

If you are looking to remove trees in the Lake Lanier area, you may need to fill out a land disturbance permit application.
