High Falls Lake

Located northwest of Macon, High Falls is a 650-acre lake on the Towaliga River in Butts County near the city of Jackson. The relatively shallow lake offers good fishing for bass and catfish, and anglers also fish for bream, crappie and white bass. A Georgia state park by the same name offers camping, hiking, boat rentals and two boat ramps. There is a $5 daily parking fee, or an annual pass is also available for access to High Falls State Park.
