Logan Martin Lake

Logan Martin Lake is a 17,000-acre reservoir in St. Clair (to the west) and Talladega (to the east) Counties. It was created in 1965 when the Alabama Power Company built Logan Martin Dam on the Coosa River. It is popular with boaters, anglers, and others in search of recreation opportunities, although many fish are inedible because of high levels of pollutants. The town of Riverside in St. Clair County is located on the lake.
