Lake Lanier is the property of the federal government and is managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). Our friends at Lanier Islands lease Shoal Creek Campground from the USACE and operate it for us all.
That’s why Lanier Islands uses its own reservation system, not Recreation.gov, which is used by all other USACE campgrounds. All the maintenance, promotion and reservations at this exceptional camping area are managed by The Islands.
Shoal Creek is about seven miles from Lanier Islands on Shadburn Ferry Road, just off Buford Dam Road.
Campers will love the large wooded sites with tables, fire rings and grills. They are all suitable for RVs or tents.
The views from the rustic walking trails are spectacular.
There are primitive lakeside campsites. In this case, primitive means there isn’t a snooty bait shop or Prada outlet mall next to your tent. There’s no need to worry about lions, tigers or bears.
Take your pick of wooded and lakefront sites with and without hookups. Use the handy boat ramps, showers, dump station, restrooms, picnic tables & pavilion, and a swimming area to make your visit complete.
