The Lake Seminole is a large lake covering over 37 thousand acres. It borders both Georgia and Florida States. The lake is surrounded by unspoiled forests and is in a rural setting. The landscape around it has rugged ravines, cypress ponds, lime sinks and varieties of trees such as hardwood and pine forests. The big attraction for people who come to fish in the lake is the nationally known largemouth bass. The forests around are excellent for observing the wide variety of plant and animal life. It is also a very good site for bird watching.

The Lake Seminole project supplies hydroelectric power to the region by an arrangement of turbines. It was the first of three locks and dams constructed for navigation, hydro-power, recreation and other purposes on the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee, and Flint River systems. Construction of this multi-purpose project began in 1947 and was completed in 1957.
