West Point Information
About West Point
The main attraction in the town is undoubtedly the 25,900-acre reservoir surrounded by lush green forests and shoreline stretching for hundreds of miles: West Point Lake. It was built during the construction of the West Point Dam by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who now manage it. Spanning across the Alabama-Georgia state line, West Point Lake provides visitors with countless outdoor activities and scenic views. A bonus to the lake is that it’s less than a 2-hour drive to the hustle and bustle of Atlanta, the state capital, and a 1-hour drive to Columbus.
Things to do in West Point
For the traveler who wants a few relaxing days lazing by the water, West Point Lake has just the place for you. The lake has over 525 miles of shoreline, so you’re sure to find a place in the sand to call you own. If you want a little exercise while you’re on the lake, but aren’t a fan of water, there are a handful of bike trails and roads that provide an excellent place for a brisk morning ride to start your day off. There are designated swim beaches that are open May through Labor Day each year where visitors come to play in the water, set up volleyball nets, and hang out with friends and family. West Point Lake is the outdoor sporting enthusiasts’ place to go in Western Georgia. Fishing and boating is king in West Point, as there are hundreds of miles to do both on the lake. You can expect to catch some great fish, including Largemouth Bass, Spotted Bass, Striped Bass, and Channel Catfish. The lake provides excellent boating options, and even allows for other water activities like skiing and tubing. Since a forested valley was flooded in order to create the lake, trees and other plant life still remain partially above water, so be sure to explore all the different fish and wildlife communities that have formed around all these areas. If you want a more guided tour of the lake, consider taking a ride on the West Point Lake Floating Classroom. Aboard the custom-built 42-foot boat, you will learn about the history of the lake, challenges facing it, and learn about some of the math and science that goes into keeping the lake up and running.
