Lake Oconee is surrounded by a combination of very large developed (and mostly gated) neighborhoods and a collection of small, lesser known, but still amazing neighborhoods. These communities exist in all three counties bordering the lake – Greene, Putnam, and Morgan. I’ve separated the neighborhoods into counties below for easy reference. And I delineated that further down into regional nicknames where available so you can get a feel for the way us locals talk about the lake.
County designation is the first way to establish location around the lake. Most of the homes are either “Putnam side” or Greene. There is only a handful of neighborhoods on the lake inside Morgan Co and often times you’ll hear it referred to by the town name of Buckhead.
