Windsurfing and Kiteboarding on Blue Ridge Lake

General Information

Blue Ridge Lake has been rumored to have wind in the summer when the rest of Georgia doesn't. Because of its altitude and extreme northern location north of many of Georgia's taller mountains, it is often in a different local climate than lakes closer to Atlanta. There is one state park on the lake with lake access and camping. Other locations, of which we aren't aware may afford access.
