Laid Back Family Camping

Lake Lanier offers a lot of choices when it comes to family camping. With 14 campgrounds on the water it may be difficult to choose which one you like best. Spring through early Fall the US Army Corps of Engineers has seven Lake Lanier Corps Parks with campgrounds for your enjoyment. Don Carter State Park is the only Georgia State Park on Lake Lanier and features camping, cabins, a fishing pier and sandy beach. Two of our most popular family style campgrounds are River Forks Park and Shoal Creek Park. Both of these locations are open year-round and welcome rigs big and small.


A trendy way to camp when you don’t have gear is to go Glamping or “Glamorous Camping.” Lake Lanier offers some great options for experiencing the outdoors with all the comforts of home.
