Lake-Sinclair is a man-made lake located in central Georgia near the town of Milledgeville. Parts of the lake are found in Baldwin, Hancock and Putnam Counties and Lake Sinclair's sister lake, Lake Oconee, is separated by Wallace Dam. Lake Sinclair has 417 miles of scenic shoreline, with winding coves and inlets, as well as wide open stretches of clean, clear water. The lake provides electricity for surrounding communities, but is also a recreational lake. There are lots of private homes around the lake, but there are also two public boat ramps, marinas and boat storage areas. Several fishing tournaments are held at Lake Sinclair, both local and national, and the area is also known for its' world-class golf courses. Day-use areas, such as Oconee Springs Park and Rocky Creek Park, offer swimming, camping, and picnicking areas with tables and grills. The city of Milledgeville is the largest community on the lake. The town is called "Georgia's Antebellum Capital," and guided tours are given on board a trolley of the city that was once the capital of Georgia. Visitors view the Old Capitol Building and the Old Governor's Mansion, as well as many beautiful Victorian and Antebellum homes. Milledgeville's historic district encompasses both the African-American and white cultures and boasts more than 20 architectural landmarks, with more than a dozen listed on the National Historic Register.
