Blalock Lakes is filled with a variety of sporting amenities that appeal to the entire family. Click on the ones that interest you in the list at the upper left to learn more about them.
Located on the highest point of the property to provide a commanding view, The Lodge offers the perfect setting to gather with friends before a hunt or relax after the day’s adventures. The interior is warm and welcoming, with exposed beam ceilings, a massive stone fireplace, and comfortable leather chairs. Amenities include a full kitchen, a game room, changing rooms/mud room, a pro-shop offering clothing, select firearms, shells, and areas for firearm maintenance and storage. Outside, a spacious back porch leads to a lawn complete with fire pit and picnic tables. Members will find The Lodge is also the ideal location for holding private events.
Everyone can partake in the skill and excitement of sporting clays at Blalock Lakes—from longtime shooting enthusiasts to a family of novices looking for some expert instruction. Get your bearings on our 12-station course, designed by nationally acclaimed outdoorsman Marty Fischer. You’ll be challenged by a variety of presentations, including simulated birds and rabbits. The traps are also frequently adjusted to keep the course fresh. For some friendly competition, try the five-stand range. By utilizing only biodegradable clays, we are protecting this incredible setting for generations to come.
There is nothing quite like the anticipation of the hunt. And no place better suited for this sporting tradition than Blalock Lakes. Our guided hunts take you through carefully managed fields and forests that provide the perfect habitat for quail, turkey, and duck. Well-trained dogs are ready to find and flush the birds, sending them rising into the air as you take aim at your trophy—and future savory meal. If you want to track some larger prey, try your hand at big game bow hunting. Thanks to a deer management program that began summer 2009, whitetail deer bow hunting is now available at Blalock Lakes. All hunting expeditions begin and end at the well-appointed Lodge.
Board a boat on one of our lakes, and feel the weight of the world drift away. At the heart of the property, acres of liquid tranquility beckon families out for a morning of fishing or an afternoon of canoeing. The lakes are teeming with bass, bluegill, and crappie, so even a beginner can experience the joy of reeling one in. To protect the integrity of the environment, only electric or paddle powered boats are allowed. When you’re done exploring, head to the dock at the picturesque Boat House. Its wide back porch overlooks the water, providing a scenic spot to relax. And inside, the warm wood tones and stone accents keep you connected to nature as you sip a cool drink and salute the end of a perfect day.
Once you fall in love with horses, there is no going back. We understand this special bond. It is what led us to create The Stables at Blalock Lakes, a premier equestrian facility designed to cater to these magnificent animals and riders of all interests and abilities. Within the 24-stall barn, you’ll find horses available for member use and plenty of room to board your own horse. Lighted arenas provide the ideal setting for dressage and jumping, or even some helpful pointers from an experienced instructor. If you want to get away from it all, ride out onto the miles of trails that run throughout the property and let the sights and sounds of nature enchant your senses.
While Blalock Lakes offers an array of amenities you won’t find anywhere else in metro Atlanta, we also have some familiar favorites. You’ll discover an updated version of the old swimming hole adjacent to the Boat House. The freeform pool features a vanishing edge design and an incredible location on the shoreline of the upper lake. When you aren’t splashing in the pool, you’ll have plenty of room to lie in the sun and enjoy the view.
Several comfortable cabins are available and have been designed for use by our property owners, members and their guests. Each features an inviting porch from which you can enjoy the beauty of the wooded setting. Cabins are located adjacent to The Lodge as well as in the Stone Chimney Court area of the community, giving you easy access to great gathering areas, like the game room and outdoor fire pit.
