Lake Trahlyta (Vogel State Park) Professional Review and Guide

"Named for a Cherokee maiden buried nearby, Lake Trahlyta is a 22-acre lake in Vogel State Park, one of Georgia’s oldest and most popular parks. The popularity of the park and the lake means that fishing is a community affair shared with swimmers and paddleboaters. Established in the 1930s and within the Chattahoochee National Forest, Vogel State Park is one of the most popular parks in Georgia. The beautiful mountain scenery and cool climate make Vogel State Park a favorite summer getaway for Georgia families.

Although the park is small at 280 acres, it has plenty of attractions. Anglers will be most interested in Lake Trahlyta and its feeder stream, Wolf Creek. Both bodies of water receive periodic stockings of rainbow trout. Warmwater species including largemouth bass and sunfish are also abundant in Lake Trahlyta. Along with fishing, Vogel State Park offers activities for the whole family. Camping, hiking, swimming, picnicking, miniature golf, and paddleboats are all available. Key species: rainbow trout, largemouth bass, bluegill."

Lake Trahlyta is a 22-acre lake located in Vogel State Park. The lake itself is a great spot for kayaking or canoeing, and there is also a one-mile hiking trail that goes around the lake. The trail is great for novice hikers, as it is a super-easy walk on a well-maintained trail that is limited to foot traffic (human and canine – you’ll see lots of hikers along this trail with leashed dogs). The scenery along the trail is gorgeous, offering wonderful views of the lake, trees, and other foliage. You can also see the surrounding mountains (Slaughter Mountains and Blood Mountains) from the trail. There is a small dam, which you can access via a side trail. There is observation deck below the dam’s spillway. The lake is stocked with trout and fishing is allowed, though boats with motors are not.
