ACWORTH, GA - Lake Acworth is located at the southwest of the city of Acworth and has flowing water from Proctor Creek. This lake is man-made and has a 260-acre wide.

There is a 1,500 feet long dam that separates Lake Acworth and Allatoona Lake. Lake Acworth is famous to become a recreational place for many different sports including fishing, boating, kayaking, and swimming. There is also a park beside the lake that can be used as a picnic area

You do not need specific permission to go fishing in this lake, however, a state-issued fishing license is required. Gas-fueled boats and personal watercraft owned by the residents are not allowed to operate on the lake, except boats from the City of Acworth. However, you can still use boats without engines such as kayaks, boats with trolling motors, paddleboats, and canoes to explore the lake.

The lake will be drained every last weekend of September to assist in the annual Great Lake Clean-Up. During this time, the lake will be dependent on rainfall water to fill up the lake.

If you do not want to jump into the water, you can still spend your time in the parks near the lake. You can bring your family and pets to have a nice barbeque party with lake scenery. Pets are allowed to enter the park excepts area with athletic facilities and Acworth Beach.
