All About Lake Georgia Pacific

The unspoiled beauty of Lake Georgia Pacific, located 10 miles from Crossett, Arkansas is a naturalist retreat. Visitors of Lake Georgia Pacific can enjoy the rolling hills and the rugged forest that surrounds the lake. Created in 1963, Lake Georgia Pacific was named after a well known lumber mill that went by the same name, and it was designed to provide water for three paper mills in Crossett.

Lake Georgia Pacific is known for its world-class bass fishing. Anglers can also cast in their line for large catfish, while other lake guests may enjoy a few picnic sites and campgrounds located around the lake. Lake Georgia Pacific is a great place to get away and to unwind. The natural setting makes the lake an ideal place for wild life viewing.

Crossett, Arkansas, located near Lake Georgia Pacific began as a mill town and was named after Edward S. Crossett who was a leading entrepreneur in the lumber industry. With three business partners, Crossett started the Crossett Lumber Company which was later sold to the Georgia-Pacific Corporation in 1962. Visitors to Crossett may want to see the three room mill house that was built before 1910. It is located on part of 110 acres of Crossett City Park. In addition to the old mill house, Crossett City Park offers a pond, a walking trail and a zoo.
