Which Lake to Choose: Lake Lanier or Arrowhead?????

I am planning a vacation in July in Ga. I would like to be on a lake, or very close to one. I want to do lot's of activities, like kayak, jet ski, zip line, etc. I was looking at Lake Lanier first, but then I saw Lake Arrowhead. It looks very nice as well, and it's a gated community, which is a plus. Can someone tell me the differences between the two, and how far apart are they from each other?

Thanks in advance!

One is huge. One is not.

One if the most visited Corps of Engineer lake in the United States and the other is a community lake.

You could fit over 70 Lake Arrowheads in Lake Lanier.

The water is much cleaner in Arrowhead than Lanier.

You may also be interested in the mountain lakes, including Burton and Rabun.

There are zip lines on the way up to Lake Burton too.
