Two significant reservoirs, Lake Talquin and Lake Seminole, have been constructed on the river for flood control and hydropower generation. The river also supports recreational activities such as fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Additionally, the river is used for agricultural purposes in Georgia and Florida, mainly for growing crops such as peanuts and cotton. Overall, the Ochlockonee River continues to play a crucial role in the history, hydrology, and economy of the region.
