4 Lake Lanier Parks

Lake Lanier Park, photograph by Robert Sutherland

Parks on Lake Lanier are prettier than words can describe.  On most days you’ll find blue skies and shimmery blue water.

Relax lakeside at one of the hundreds of picnic tables all around the hundreds of miles of shoreline.  Frolic on a clean sandy beach, enjoy a barbecue with your family, fish from the shores, launch your boat, or wisely invest whatever time you have at one of the relaxing shelters on Lake Lanier.

Parks on Lake Lanier are managed by several cities, counties, the state of Georgia and the federal government.  What that means is there is no single set of rules, operating hours or seasons, and no single pass that can get you into them all.  Yes, that’s a pain, but it’s a result of having so many parks in so many places to choose from.  That’s the nice part.
