Throughout the year, taking out a boat on Lake Martin is a popular activity in the community. The summer typically means busier waters with more people out, while winter is used more for fishing. There are a plethora of public and private boat ramps and marina’s accessible to those looking for a place to dock their boat. The region is also filled with camping sites for the guests that want to come and visit you. Wind Creek State Park is the most popular and largest campground operated by the state. The Alabama Marine Police patrol Lake Martin to ensure safety at all times.
Chimney Rock and Goat Island are public hotspots for an even more fun day on the lake. Chimney Rock is a great spot to stop, meet other people out on the lake and maybe even jump off the 40-foot rock for those wanting an adrenaline rush. Goat Island, as the name states is an island in the middle of the lake which is home to many friendly goats. Be sure to watch your snacks on the boat, as the goats often enjoy those too.
