Lake Seminole

Lake Seminole is in the very southwestern corner of Georgia, along the borders with Florida and Alabama. It is formed by the Jim Woodruff Dam over the Apalachicola River in Florida. It covers 37,500 acres and has 376 miles of shoreline. Most of the Georgia portion of the lake is located in Seminole County. Both the Chattahoochee River and Flint River empty into Lake Seminole.
