Lake Burton

The Jewel of Rabun County

The largest and northernmost of Rabun County's lakes, Lake Burton boasts breathtaking panoramic mountain views, crystal clear water, and lush flora. The natural, scenic beauty of the lake is complemented perfectly by the architectural artistry of its homes. The perfect lake for boating, fishing, and watersports enthusiasts of all kinds, Lake Burton is the site of numerous fishing tournaments, and the annual Mountain Air Classic, Georgia's oldest wakeboarding competition. After a long day on the water, lake residents often retreat to LaPrade's to unwind and enjoy a meal on the deck, porch, or dining room, all of which sit on the lake's shore and overlook the water.  Other community events include the Lake Burton Civic Association Tour of Homes, Lake Burton Fun Run, Ducktape Regatta at LaPrade's, 4th of July Fireworks, Rabun Ramble, and a wood boat parade.
