Buford Dam Park
Trying to find Buford Dam Park is like figuring out who is buried in Grant’s Tomb.
Buford Dam Park is located on the south end of Lake Lanier near (ready?) Buford Dam!
There is a fee to enter the park: $4 per vehicle and $1 for pedestrians.
This park is a popular spot for small picnics and large groups too. Pavilions are available for rent. As of June, 2015, the fee was $90/day, which is subject to change.
This beautiful recreation area has areas for basketball, volleyball and swimming, in addition to pleasant picnic tables for a meal or relaxing with a good book.
Laurel Ridge Trail goes through Buford Dam Park and continues through Powerhouse Park and Lower Overlook. Along the 3.8-mile trail you can glimpse beautiful views of the lake, woodland and river scenery, as well as rare wildflowers and a variety of wildlife. The trail winds through several park areas, along the lake’s shoreline and the banks of the Chattahoochee River.
Pets are prohibited at this park.
