Just an hour North of Atlanta, Georgia, rests a man-made lake named Sidney Lanier. Created by the completion of the Buford Dam in 1956, Lake Lanier encompasses more 59 square miles of water, more than 690 miles of shoreline, and over 100 small islands. Campers, fisherman, and water-sport fanatics alike are provided countless recreation opportunities on the Lake Lanier. Home to a dozen campgrounds, Lake Lanier is well-known for its great fishing locations, water activities, and various events held year-round.
The Army Corps of Engineers operates 7 of the 12 campgrounds located along the banks of Lanier. Most of these sites are lakefront and include a picnic table, a fire pit, and a lantern pole. In addition, all Army Corp campgrounds contain an accessible beach area, and boat ramp, and restrooms for campers and day-users.
