“Plan Your Natural Getaway Today!”

Don Carter is Georgia’s newest state park, as well as the first state park on 38,000-acre Lake Lanier. Situated on the north end of the reservoir, the park offers outstanding recreation for water lovers. Guests can stay cool at a large, sand swimming beach with bath house. Boat ramps provide quick access to the lake, while a paved, multi-use trail welcome hikers and bikers to explore the hardwood forest. This new park offers several choices for overnight getaways as well. Two-bedroom cabins are perched on wooded hillsides near the lake. One campground is designed specifically for RVs, while another primitive camping area is just for tents and hammocks. The campground and cottage loop are gated, providing access to overnight guests only. The park is named in honor of real-estate executive Don Carter who served on the Georgia Department of Natural Resources board for 29 years and worked to establish Lake Lanier’s first state park.

We stayed here one night in our Popup camper. Campground is very nice, paved areas for setting up, each spot has picnic table, fire ring (burn ban so didn't use). Bathrooms are clean, nice showers. We took a few hiking trials while hear. It looks like a great place to be during the summer, they have a lot of water activities. Negative: Heard a nearby train all night. Can't reserve specific spots it's first come first serve.
