Logan Martin Lake is located on the Coosa River in east-central Alabama approximately 30 miles east of Birmingham, Alabama. This 17,000 acre Coosa River reservoir was built in 1965 by Alabama Power Company. Nicknamed "Lake of a Thousand Coves" by locals, Logan Martin has 275 miles of shoreline along its 48.5 mile length sandwiched between Logan Martin Dam on the south side and Neely Henry Dam on the north. The depth of the lake is 35 to 110 feet with five feet average water level variance. With some of the nation's finest bass fishing, Lake Logan Martin also is fun for boating, skiing and swimming.
Most Alabama Lakes fall under 2006 legislation, not allowing house boats. Logan Martin Lake is not one of them. A house boat is in the law defined as a vessel that constitutes a fully equipped dwelling, with marine sanitation device, galley and sleeping quarters.
