Your official website for Real Estate on Lake Martin.
Lake Martin is located on the Tallapoosa River in Tallapoosa County, Elmore County, and Coosa County of Alabama. It is a 41,140 acre (178 km squared) lake with over 880 miles (1408 km) of wooded shoreline. One of the largest artificial lakes in the United States, Lake Martin is a popular recreation area for swimming, boating, fishing, water skiing, camping, and golfing.
Lake Martin is in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountians. As a result, probably the hardest thing for first-time visitors to understand is that you can't just drive around and see the lake. We're in a hilly, heavily wooded area. The only time you can really see Lake Martin is when you're driving across one of our three major bridges or parking in someone's driveway! But Lake Martin is vast and can really only be appreciated from the water. The water is clear, clean and deep - over 180 feet deep in some areas.
