Growing up in Columbus Georgia consisted of many more warm days than cold, so the river and boats were a big part of my life. When Spring came, it was time to go to the ” backwater”, the “river”, or Lake Harding as it is called now. We spent many summers riding around in boats and waterskiing. In the summer, one morphed into a “river rat!”
If you had a cabin or a boat – you never lacked for friends when the temperatures heated up. You certainly would see more of your family during the Spring and Summer months! Of course it was mostly cabins years ago and certainly not the fine homes that grace the shorelines today. You rarely saw nice seawalls or lawns. Simply riverbanks with riprap rock, clay yards, and not so nice dwellings.
Lake Harding now is inhabited by many full-time residents! It is not just a weekend get away anymore. There are two marinas and the new one on the Georgia side has a restaurant and live music. A short drive on the Georgia side will take you to some great food with Hunters Pub or Pat’s Backwater. Columbus, Lagrange, and Pine Mountain are all 15-25 minutes away depending on where you are on the lake. The Alabama side of the lake is impressive too and is only minutes from Phenix City and Auburn Alabama.
Lake Harding has some beautiful homes and condominiums like the one in these pictures which is located on the Georgia side.
