Lake-Rabun is an 835-acre lake located in the northeastern corner of Georgia. It's the third in a series of six lakes that follow the original course of the Tallulah River. All of these lakes are owned and operated by the Georgia Power Company to generate energy for the city of Atlanta. Lake Rabun was built in a deep valley along a ten-mile stretch of the Tallulah River in Rabun County. There are many second homes in the Lake Rabun area, which are owned by some of the most wealthy and politically connected individuals in Georgia. Lake Rabun is used for recreation, however the strong home owners association and board members have resisted attempts to make it more commercialized, wanting to maintain its' serene, uncrowded appeal. The lake is known for its unique annual 4th of July celebration. Every year there is a wooden boat parade that follows the shoreline of Lake Rabun. Prizes are given to the most decorated boat and boat house. Come nightfall, a spectacular fireworks display is presented directly on the lake. Spectators may watch from the hundreds of boats crowded along the lower basin of the lake, or along the lakeshore. Nearby attractions include Blalock Lake and Tallulah Falls Lake.
