Georgia’s hot summer days are quickly approaching, and in Milledgeville that means enjoying the outdoors, spending time with friends and family, and creating memories that will last forever. Milledgeville is home to Lake Sinclair and the Oconee River, so the best way to cool off in the summer heat is to enjoy our miles of shorelines and refreshing waters.
Pontoon Boat, Jet Ski Rentals
Several Marinas on Lake Sinclair offer boat and jetski rentals for those 25 years or older. Bring a cooler for lunch, sunscreen, and some floats, and you are ready! Make sure to ask the marina about tubing on the lake, an activity that kids and adults are sure to love!
Tubing down the Oconee River
Grab an inner-tube and enjoy a lazy day on the Oconee River. Connect your inner-tubes with a piece of rope and float as a family, or fly solo with and enjoy the breeze. Begin at the Oconee River Greenway and end your journey at Central State for a 6 hour floating trip, or use a paddle for a shorter expedition. No matter how you stay afloat, you are sure to feel refreshed!
Up for an adventure? The Oconee River can be enjoyed by paddlers of all experience levels. Local outfitters will rent you a kayak for the half or full day as well as provide transportation to drop off and pick up sites. If you aren’t feeling up for an epic solo trip, there are group floats down the Oconee River as well. Plan your trip to get on the water with our locals Mac’s Yaks or Oconee Outfitters. All the gear you need to bring is your inner outdoorsman!

Central Georgia Flyboarding
For the adventurers looking to try something new, flyboarding is the new extreme water-sport trend. Experience the futuristic new activity that allows you to fly over the beautiful waters of Lake Sinclair. The flyboard is made up of a pair of jet-boots connected to a hose, which is then connected to a jetski or boat. The water then propels you up into the air, allowing you to spin, flip, and dive into the water.
