Bolding Mill Campground is a nice Corps of Engineers park located on the North End of Lake Lanier. This review is part of the Lake Lanier Big Rig Project. Overall a very nice park. Very clean and most of the sites are right on the water. This is a nice simple campground located about 8 miles south of Gainesville. For people looking to get away from things – this is a potential spot. BTW – do not trust sites that look like they will fit big rigs. Some are to uneven. All the sites mentioned below have been verified.

Things to do in the Area

As mentioned before we have not stayed at this park. Just drove over and took pics for this review. But we have lived in the area 15+ years. Gainesville is about 6 miles away and has everything you can expect from a medium size town.


  • In Gainesville there are two restaurants that are worth the drive. Southern Recess Gastro Pub is an eclectic little bar right on the square with really good food. The Atlanta Seafood Market is an exceptional seafood restaurant for lunch in Little Mexico and we always go there when in Gainesville. Also closest to the Park is Olive Garden  and a Cheddar’s (A very good franchise restaurant).
  • In Dawsonville there are plenty run of the mill restaurants but one is the exception. The Blue Bicycle is a high end dinner epicurean delight that has very, very good entrees. No need to dress up but a very high end restaurant.

Things to Do

  • This is a remote campground on the lake so obviously plenty of lake things to do. You can rent a boat from Gainesville Marina or check out Boatbound – there are several listings out there as well. If you do go out on the lake the best restaurant is Fishtails and you do not want to miss Sunset Cove – a unique experience in itself.
  • Lake Lanier water park is a pretty cool water park right on the lake and we love going there.
  • Lake Lanier is famous for its Bass and Striper Fishing. We have caught some huge stripers with Shane Watson Guide service.
  • Day trips up to Helen, Ga – The German capital of Georgia or hike the falls at Amicaloa Falls

Final Thoughts

This is a nice little campground on the north end of Lake Lanier. If you are looking for quiet serene lake views this is not a bad place. I think we would choose Duckett Mill over this but this is not a bad second choice
