The Bethel Park boat launch on Lake Lanier is one of many operated by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
Bethel Park is easily accessed from Georgia Route 369, also known as Brown’s Bridge Road, on the west side of Gainesville. (If you are one of the few people who can actually figure out where stuff is based on east, west, south, north and over yonder a piece.)
You can either set your GPS to 8595 Swiss Air Road, Gainesville, 30506 or wander on Rt. 369 until you see Bethel Road on one side and Jot Em Down Road on the other. Yes, really.
Turn from Browns Bridge Road (Rt 369) onto Bethel Road. Drive down yonder a piece on Bethel Road, then bear left onto Swiss Air Road. Head to the end of the road and you’ll find parking for your trailer and vehicle at Bethel Park, along with restrooms, boat ramp, and a dock.
If you have a hard time finding this boat ramp, don’t get upset. Fish can sense anger and they won’t take your bait. Stay calm to catch fish on Lake Lanier.
