Bolding Mill is a haven of rest on the northwest side of Lake Lanier, and the portal to excitement for sailing, paddling, fishing or water skiing.

Have fun catching little fish with your little ones.  Better yet, get some serious tackle and land a striped bass as big as your kids.  Either way, you’ll have a great day at the lake.

If bouncing around in a boat (not) catching fish on a sunny day isn’t all that appealing, that’s okay.  Send Captain Ahab out in search of the Great White Bass, while you soak in the rays on Bolding Mill’s sandy beach.  Heck, yeah.  Bring on the tan lines.

If you tire from spending hours on the sunny beach (like that’s gonna happen) take a walk and look for birds!  Bird watching is at least more fun than your job.  Yes, you can stay on the beach or play in the water, if you prefer.

Bolding Mill Campground has 88 gorgeous spots with electric and water hookups.  You may “rough it” at nine tent-only sites lakeside.  Conveniences include a laundry, playground, hot showers and new friends.

Bolding Mill Day-Use park is nearby.
