Lincoln County is known as "Georgia's Freshwater Coast" and a sportsman's paradise. Each year thousands of people visit the county to take advantage of its hunting, fishing, boating, swimming and camping facilities which are among the finest in the state. Lincoln County has the distinction of being the first county-wide listing in Georgia in the National Register of Historic Places with more than 160 historic buildings. Lincoln County is nestled on the shores of Clark's Hill Reservoir, the largest Corps of Engineers project east of the Mississippi, with more than 1,200 miles of shoreline.
The Broad River Water Trail flows through the area and offers great paddling for any river enthusiast.
