Lakes in Alabama


Alabama is home sweet home to many beautiful bodies of water. In the north, the state is notable for its pristine mountain lakes, such as Lake Guntersville and the lakes of Bear Creek, as well as Pickwick, Weiss, Wheeler, Wilson, and Lewis Smith Lakes.

In central Alabama, lake enthusiasts will love Logan Martin Lake as well as Lake Martin. Called the "Lake of a Thousand Coves", Logan Martin Lake has some of the best bass fishing in the continental U.S. Martin Lake is also noteworthy. In fact, it's one of the largest artificial lakes in the U.S. Both are popular recreational areas as well, supporting lots of water activities, including boating and swimming.

In southern Alabama, two reservoirs are of particular note - the Walter F. George Reservoir and the William Dannelly Reservoir.
