Located twenty-five miles due north of the city of Montgomery in central Alabama, Lake Jordan is a 6,800-acre impoundment on the Coosa River with 188 miles of shoreline. The Mitchell Dam tailwater area at the upper end of the lake is a popular recreational area to many anglers with ample bank fishing access. Lake Jordan was impounded by Alabama Power Company in 1928; however, in 1967, Bouldin Dam was completed which impounded an adjacent basin that connects Lake Jordan by a short canal. Lake Jordan is very fertile and supports high densities of sport fish and forage species. The lake was constructed to provide flood control, and supply hydroelectricity; however, the lake has become very popular for various types of recreation including boating, swimming and fishing.

Public and private boat ramps, as well as several private marinas provide access to Lake Jordan. Two popular public boating access areas include Bonner’s Point on the west side of the lake and Rotary Landing to the east. Several private marinas located on the main lake and up river near Mitchell Dam also include boat ramps. Topographic maps of Lake Jordan are available at local marinas and sporting goods stores.
