Lake Oconee Day Trips
Lake Oconee is located in the perfect spot for some awesome day trips around Georgia. Only a short distance east of the lake is Atlanta, a city with a big historical background and big sports teams, including the 2016-17 NFC Champions the Atlanta Falcons. West of the lake is Augusta, a smaller city that has just as much to do when it comes to nightlife and fun attractions, like Craft and Vine or Sky City. Looking for a more small town getaway? Travel out to Madison, the ‘#1 Small Town in America’ that carries the essence of southern charm. Greensboro is the perfect place to visit for a taste of small town history and friendly neighbors.

Lake Oconee Accommodations
Whether you decide to spend your entire vacation hanging out by the lake, or want to take a day trip out to a city like Atlanta, we make it simple for you to find the perfect place to stay. If you want to spend your vacation lakeside, we recommend choosing a rental near the southern end of the lake, which will provide you with a quiet and fun vacation with the family or with friends. Nature lovers should choose a rental near the north of the lake, closer to the Oconee National Forest. Planning a day trip to Madison, Eatonton, or Atlanta? We recommend choosing a rental on the westernmost side of the lake, in order to put you close to the interstate that will take you out to these cities. Vice versa, if you’re planning a day trip out to places like Augusta, choose a rental on the eastern side of the lake in order to save you the traveling. Regardless of where you decide to stay, you can compare rentals by price, reviews, ratings and more on Tripping. Book your Lake Oconee rental today!
