Young Deer Park is a 14-acre family playground that is beautifully maintained by our friends at Forsyth County Parks and Recreation Department.  For a small fee you may use the boat ramp and handy courtesy dock.  You can safely and quickly load your family into your boat for a happy day on Lake Lanier.
