Oguta Blue Lake is the largest natural lake in the state. It is a tourist attraction in Imo State and a prime spot for visitors and locals. During the Colonial era, Oguta Lake served as a port to transport palm products from the state. It was also used by the Biafran Navy as a marine base during the civil war
Unlike some other lakes, Oguta lake is not salty and therefore safe to swim in as there are no wild or dangerous animals within. Visitors, as well as locals, enjoy playing the game of golf on the lake.
A magnificent spot on the lake is the confluence point where two striking colours of water meet. At this spot, the Bluewater and the Urashi River flow side by side without mixing. This happens without the external or man-made barrier.
There are lots to things to do in Oguta lake. From taking a speedboat ride to have a look at the magical confluence or go fishing, having a picnic at the lake bank, or visit the Oguta Lake Holiday Resort which houses some of the best facilities.
The Ikedi Ohakim administration had started the Oguta Blue Lake resort, which was abandoned by Rochas Okorocha.
Ihedioha had visited the site with Ohakim, and the Hope Uzodinma administration is hoped to complete the project which would attract more tourists to the state.
