Pet Friendly Lake Lanier – Where can I bring my dog?

Pet Friendly Lake Lanier – Where can I bring my dog?

As spring arrives, many visitors to Lake Lanier want to know where they can bring their furry friends for a day at the lake.

One of the most common questions we are asked is: “What parks on Lake Lanier allow dogs?”

 

Always be sure to use the proper flotation when bringing your pet to open water.

A leash and good fitting life jacket are a must when planning to allow your pet access to the water. It’s the safest for them and for others enjoying the lake.

 

In general, parks at the southern end of Lake Lanier are the most visited.

That’s why the parks at the southern end of Lake Lanier are “pet restricted” — meaning pets are not allowed.

 

Below are two lists – the No Pets Allowed parks and the Pets Welcome parks.

We hope you have a wonderful lake season with your furry friends.
