Situated high on a small tributary to Waters Creek, Dockery Lake is a 3-acre pond that offers good fishing for rainbow trout. The lake, campground, and other facilities are popular with people searching for a peaceful and relaxing place. In the shadow of the Appalachian Trail within the bounds of the Chattahoochee National Forest and Chestatee Wildlife Management Area, Dockery Lake is a peaceful oasis. Dockery Lake is noted for its attractive shoreline campground offering above-average privacy and spacious sites. The lake receives periodic stockings of catchable-sized rainbow trout throughout the trout season. Warm-water species including bass and bream are also found in the lake, but trout are the favorite with anglers. Several small piers have been constructed to help give anglers unrestricted access to the lake. In addition, an angler’s trail completely circles the lake never straying more than a few feet from the water’s edge. Bear, deer, and wild turkeys can all be seen on the area at times. In fact, visitors should take extra precautions with their food and supplies to discourage any marauding by bruins with a hungry stomach. Key species: rainbow trout.
