Toto Creek Park
Toto Creek Park lies (lays?) in the wilderness of Lake Lanier that lays (lies?) a few miles from the bustle of the local outlet malls.
Toto Creek not only has a boat ramp, you’ll also find nine primitive campsites that are open from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
Camping once meant hiking into the woods and fighting bears for a place to pitch a tent. You carried whatever you needed to survive.
If you forgot something, you made a replacement out of tree bark or possum claws.
These days, primitive camping means poor Internet service inside a $350,000 rolling home. If Daniel Boone wanted primitive camping, he’d mosey on over to Toto Creek for a day or a month.
Be like Daniel Boone. Come to Toto Creek Park, where you are free to sleep outdoors in a tent, tarp or hammock, or on a pile of rocks, if you’re tough enough.
There was a time when you could just pull up and claim a campsite. Today, you must make a reservation by clicking here.

Toto Creek Park is primitive. No electricity. No water at the campsites. No whining.
That makes Toto Creek about as primitive as most homes were a few generations ago. Folks back then survived just fine. So will you … and Toto too. Probably.
Put on a raccoon hat, slap on a pair of boots, cut some firewood, pour some water in a jug, pop your sleeping bag in your car, and rough it for a night or two at Toto Creek Park.
If crickets and tree frogs terrify you, calm down at the snazzy outlet malls only minutes away.
