Lanier Islands Partners with Safe Harbor Development

The new partnership between Safe Harbor Development and the Virgil Williams Family’s LLI Management Company — owners of Lanier Islands since 2005 — will transform Lanier Islands from Great to Greater!

I incorrectly reported previously that the Islands was sold to Safe Harbor, but that was a mistake.  I apologize for my error.

The spectacular 1,500-acre lakeside resort and entertainment venue on Lake Lanier promises to be even more fabulous.

Virgil Williams, Chairman of the Board for LLI Management Company, LLC, says:

“We have been searching for a long time to find a creative financial and operations partner who shared our vision of what Lanier Islands could and should be.  Darby Campbell and his team at Safe Harbor Development not only share that vision, but also our passion for providing an unsurpassed guest experience.”

Here’s the best part: Safe Harbor’s partner is Margaritaville, the global lifestyle brand that plans to open a Margaritaville Hotel  next year in Nashville.

Safe Harbor now operates the marinas and campgrounds at Lanier Islands.

They will also manage the destination’s special events programming, including the annual Magical Nights of Lights, which just celebrated its 25th anniversary.

A few plans have been revealed for the Islands: all-new RV park, and more wet and dry slips.  Cometh by land or sea and bask in the fun and sun at Lanier Islands.

    The RV park at Lake Lanier Islands is truly a gem, although in very bad shape, hopefully they infuse new life into a great piece of land that is so close to Atlanta. It could be a real moneymaker with some effort into making the RV sites capable of handling some larger motorhomes. Adding sewer hookups would be wonderful and widening some of the roads to campsites. Seems we are always hitting low branches. We go there at least 2 times a year for the past 5 years, family lives close by, and hopefully it turns into a first class RV Resort.
