Lake Sidney Lanier, often referred to as Lake Lanier, is a reservoir in the northern portion of Georgia. Lake Lanier was created by the completion of Buford Dam on the Chattahoochee River in 1956, and is also fed by the waters of the Chestatee River. It was named for poet Sidney Lanier, and was built and is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It is patrolled by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

Lake Lanier is particularly known for its boaters, houseboats, jetskiers and there is also a local water park, The Lake Lanier Islands waterpark. The 1996 Summer Olympics rowing and sprint canoeing events were held at the lake. It also hosted the canoe sprint World Championships in 2003 at the Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club.

Every year from mid-November through December, Lake Lanier Islands are decorated with holiday lights, know as the Magical Nights of Lights, one of the world's largest light shows.
