Information About Lake Peachtree

Lake Peachtree is located in the heart of Peachtree City. Being that it is located in the heart of the city It makes it hard to miss for both visitors and residence alike. For years this lake has and continues to be an important landmark for the community.

In fact, it has been over 50 years since the lake was created by damming up flat creek. The dam was officially completed and the lake began to fill in 1957. Back then Peachtree City was just getting started. In fact, it wasn't even chartered yet. That happened on March 9, 1959.

Boating Rules For Lake Peachtree

Lake Peachtree does have a few boating laws. For example, only certain people can opperate gasoline powered boats on the lake. These people have to be living in the homes that have "lake rights". These specific homes are those that are located on the western shore of the lake. These boats can be identified by the official "Lake Peachtree Association Sticker". All gasoline powered boats with lake rights must have these stickers attached at all times.

If you do not have the right to operate a gasoline powered boat on the lake, you can operate all other types of boats that do not use a gasoline powered engine. Some examples of acceptable boats are boats with battery powered engines, sail boats, canoes, kayaks, row boats, and any other type of boat or flotation device that isn't gas powered.

Swimming is permitted in Lake Peachtree. The city asks that swimmers enter the water only from the Battery Way Boat Dock.

    Is the lake ready to be fished in

    Hi Roberta, and thanks for your question. I would love to give you an update on the status of the lake; unfortunately I do not live in Peachtree City. In fact, I live in Europe and do not actually know where Peachtree City is located. I know this does not completely answer your question, but it’s a start. Hope this helps.

    I visited Lake Peachtree in March 2014 and the lake was down. I read an article that indicated that the lake had been drained intentionally so homeowners could repair/renovate docks etc. Can you please provide me with the current status of the lake and any websites that might provide current information on the lake. Thank you.
