“Beautiful campground next to Lake Lanier!”

Reviewed Aug 08, 2018

Overall Rating

If I could, I'd give this campground a 5 stars plus rating because it's one of my favorites!! It's an Army Corps of Engineers campground with partial hookups on Lake Lanier and it's BEAUTIFUL.

The bathrooms/showers were very clean and there's even a small playground for the littles. Camphosts are very friendly and helpful as well.

Lake Lanier has a very interesting history. It's actually a flooded town! During a severe drought season in Georgia several years ago, the water level went down low enough that certain parts of the town, like buildings and a race track became visible. People often scuba dive in the lake to view the remnants of the town.

There's so much to do around there as well! Hiking and biking trails, day use areas, and if you want to do some shopping, Cumming is a really cute small town.

I would definitely go back for another visit!

“Stay Away From This Prison Camp”

Reviewed Oct 21, 2018

Overall Rating

Our weekend stay at the campground was ruined by the volunteer. He kept harassing us the whole stay telling us what to do and how to behave. We tried to stay calm and polite, but he was treating us like we were in prison and he owns us. This was our first (and last) time camping on Lanier. We usually stay in North Georgia State Parks and usually volunteer people are really nice. Just stay away!
