Lake Tobesofkee

Lake Tobesofkee is located in Bibb County, Georgia, and is a reservoir along the Tobesofkee Creek just west of Macon's city limits. Known to locals as "The Tobo," this highly-visited recreational lake is located three miles from I-475. The Tobesofkee Recreation Area contains three public parks -- Claystone, Sandy Beach, and Arrowhead. Visitors can enjoy boating, fishing, camping, tennis, swimming, hiking, and picnicking along a 35-mile shoreline.


The largemouth bass population at this lake is past its 12-year average, and continues to thrive at 15-25 inches in size. Other fish species stocked at this lake include striped bass, crappie, bream, and catfish. Chain pickerel are on the increase, especially in the water willow grass beds above and below the lower Thomaston Road Bridge. This lake welcomes boat and bank fishing.
