What 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 7 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
This is really a great campground. 22 great spots for Big Rigs. The park has large roads easy entry and exit and a great staff. If you are looking for a nice place to take your big rig on the lake this is definitely a possibility. We definitely would camp here.
Please let me know if you have any questions! We live in the area…
