The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is working on the Lake Lanier Master Plan Update. That review of current and future recreational needs, among other items, is expected to take about two years to complete.
Lanier Islands’ New Year’s Eve Celebration can keep you out of jail, save you $20,000 and prevent your house from burning to the ground!
The First Day Hike at Don Carter State Park takes place on January 1st 2018. Get it? First Day Hike? First day of the New Year?
The runner-up name for this hike was, “Sober Up in the Woods on New Year’s Day.”
What’s the best way to add a bit of sunshine to rainy nights at home with the kids before Christmas? Pop the family in the car and head to Lanier Islands for the 25th Anniversary of Magical Nights of Lights. It’s open nightly from 5-10 PM through January 3, 2018.
That doesn’t sound true, right? Yes, according to their website, you can get unlimited access to Lanier Islands for $85 per year. Including the Magical Nights of Lights, but not LanierWorld.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who think winter camping on Lake Lanier sounds terrific and those who believe the words “winter” and “camping” should never be used in the same sentence.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) operates 32 day-parks in our area, including Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona. It is wise to invest in Corps of Engineers’ Annual Park Passes.
One of the best ways for park visitors to save money is to invest in an annual pass.
You can choose to cough up $5.00 per day per vehicle to enter USACE day-use areas or simply pay $40 for the entire year.
In the off season, training at the Lake Lanier Rowing Club does not rest. The club has two great opportunities to have some fun rowing this winter. No experience is necessary.

The bad news is Fish Tales closes for the winter on Sunday, November 19, 2017. The good news is they will reopen in time to take your Hunny Bunny there for Valentine’s Day.
The folks at Fish Tales have done their jobs well. The friendly service, food worth paying for, the scenery and a chance to eat outdoors (and have someone else do the dishes) make this a popular spot on Lake Lanier.
Way back on November 20, 1993 — When Meatloaf’s I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That) was the number one song in America — Lake Lanier Islands strung a few lights in scrawny trees and lit up 40 displays. From that frail beginning comes the 25th Annual Magical Nights of Lights at Lanier Islands!
