Parks on Lake Lanier are prettier than words can describe. On most days you’ll find blue skies and shimmery blue water. Relax lakeside at one of the hundreds of picnic tables all around the almost 700-miles of shoreline.  Camp overnight in an RV, tent, hammock or out under the stars.  Frolic on a clean sandy beach or wisely invest whatever time you have at one of the many parks on Lake Lanier.

Parks on Lake Lanier are managed by several cities, counties, the state of Georgia and the federal government.  What that means is there is no single set of rules, operating hours or seasons, and no single pass that can get you into them all.  Yes, that’s a pain, but it’s a result of having so many parks in so many places to choose from.  That’s the nice part.
