West Point Lake
Popular reservoir (25,900 acres) for largemouth bass and other fish. West Point Lake is surrounded by deep forests and rolling fields extending 35 miles along the Chattahoochee River on the Alabama-Georgia state line. The lake's 525 miles of shoreline provides excellent opportunities for fishing, camping, boating and other recreational activities. The construction of the West Point Lake Dam was authorized by the Flood Control Act of 1962. Congress authorized the project for flood control, hydroelectric power, navigation, fish and wildlife development and general recreation.
