Reynolds Plantation is part of what was once known as "Cracker's Neck," a highly favored section of Greene County (named for Revolutionary War hero General Nathaniel Greene). After a period of decline, approximately 7,000 acres of Cracker's Neck were reclaimed by Mercer Reynolds Sr., who built a hunting retreat named "Linger Longer." A Greene County native, Reynolds was a highly successful businessman and inventor, earning a patent for his process of solidifying cottonseed oil. Although he moved to Chattanooga in the 1920s, he maintained ties to the area, often returning to Linger Longer to hunt, fish and relax.
During this same period, James Madison Reynolds, Sr., Mercer's cousin, was assembling land in the area for timber production. By the late 1930s the combined land holdings of the Reynolds family approximated 10,000 acres, which were left in a trust. In 1985, the trust was released to his grandchildren. The owners of Reynolds Plantation began working to determine the best use of the land that their family had owned for so many years and with a vision of a community where families would enjoy the natural surroundings and reconnect with one another, much as their families had done for more than two generations. As development of Reynolds Plantation continues, members of the Reynolds family remain intensely mindful of the historical value of the land and the need to preserve, and enhance, its natural beauty and legacy.
At 19,050 acres, Lake Oconee is the second-largest lake in the state, boasting an impressive 376 miles of picturesque shoreline at full capacity. Lake Oconee was created in 1979, via the construction of the Wallace Dam and the subsequent flooding of the Oconee River by the Georgia Power Company, in an effort to boost the state’s hydroelectric power production capabilities.
Lake Oconee is unique in that the water never fluctuates more than 18 inches and is pumped down and filled back by Georgia Power daily. This movement of water makes the fish feed on the current movement just like that in the ocean. Lake Oconee is famous for housing more fish per square acre than any other lake in Georgia, including large mouth bass, bream, catfish, crappie and striped bass hybrids. This serene and secluded escape also offers visitors a wealth of other recreational opportunities, including kayaking, canoeing and waterskiing.
