I have good news and I have bad news.

First, the bad news.  All your old links to Lake Lanier’s Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Web pages are toast.  Broken.  404.  Vaporized and otherwise lost.  Sorry.

Here’s the good news!  The USACE has updated its website with dandy links to all things Lake Lanier:

  • Lake Levels
  • Menu
  • Questions & Answers
  • Recreation
  • Shoreline Management
  • Special Events
  • Volunteer
  • Water Safety


The USACE operates 464 lakes in 43 states, but a recent survey of one writer found that Lake Lanier is the very best in the nation.

More than 7.5 million visitors come to Lake Lanier and its almost 700-miles of shoreline.  Our bass-infested reservoir — with its gorgeous views and mostly peaceful waters — is the perfect way to escape the concrete jungles of Atlanta and/or Dahlonega.

We are grateful for the Corps for its work to preserve and protect Lake Lanier for our enjoyment.

    I would like for everyone to know that people who metal detect on the beaches of lake Lanier do more cleaning of trash and glass Everytime we detect! Our motto is “leave it cleaner than when you arrived” Why would you put regulations on free trash pickup?

      Dear Mr. Fleming,

      We report news from the US Army Corps of Engineers but we have no affiliation with them.

      Please contact them directly regarding your request for a new dock.
