Some of the best fishing in the Southeastern United States is found right here, amidst the incomparable beauty of Callaway Resort & Gardens. Our thirteen sparkling lakes are renowned for enormous bream, crappie, shellcrackers, and trophy sized bass, and several lakes are seasonally stocked with rainbow trout. And because our lakes are private, no fishing license is needed. If fishing is not your sport, enjoy some relaxing time on the water and spectacular views with a kayak or boat excursion.
