Lake Lanier Campgrounds

It’s time to go camping at one of more than a dozen Lake Lanier campgrounds!

Lanier has almost 700-miles of shoreline, with bunches of islands that beckon to be explored in the middle of the lake.  (No campfires or overnight camping, please.)

Some of the most beautiful and relaxing spots are at the campgrounds all around Lake Lanier.

Campgrounds on Lake Lanier can be found on

  • the north end of the lake at Don Carter State Park
  • the south end of Lanier at Sawnee
  • on the western shore at Bald Ridge Campgrounds and
  • near Buford on the eastern side of Lanier at Van Pugh South.

Take your pick of sites to camp — from “primitive camping” at a quiet hideaway minutes from a snazzy outlet mall to the bustling Sawnee Campgrounds relatively close to Atlanta — and put up your tent or zap the power-operated awning on your motor home into place.

No matter how you camp, even in a cozy lakeside cabin, it’s nice to get outside and enjoy nature for a change.

The best part?  Campers always make new friends!
