Spring is here, and the cold weather is on its way out (fingers crossed)! It’s a great time to start planning an outdoor retreat to Don Carter State Park.
After many years of hard labor, Don Carter State Park was born in 2013. First conceived by Mr. Don Carter himself, the State of Georgia delivered the park to us without fanfare or complications. Now, it’s hard to remember when our idyllic park wasn’t with us.
This recreation area on Lake Lanier is in a rather remote location aside the Chattahoochee River, north of Gainesville, near Clermont, GA. Burger joints, gas stations and food markets are within ten miles, but not around the corner.
The remoteness alone is a great reason to visit Don Carter State Park, but read on for 10 more great reasons why you should plan a visit to Lanier’s only state park.
