Located just northeast of downtown along Morrison Moore Parkway East, Yahoola Creek Reservoir provides most of the City of Dahlonega’s water supply along with multiple recreational opportunities.

A parking area along the bypass provides easy access to the Lake Zwerner Dam and a circumnavigational hiking trail that creates a loop around the reservoir, approximately 3.2 miles in length. 

Just north of the Hwy 60 bridge, one can find the Lake Zwerner boat ramp and dock, along with picnic facilities and fishing access.
