Opening July 15, 2013, Don Carter State Park is Georgia’s newest state park.
Initially RV and tent camping will be available on a walk-in basis as the reservation system for the park is not yet available.
From the park’s website:
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 will open soon and are perched on wooded hillsides near the lake. One campground accommodates RVs, while another camping area is reserved just for tents and hammocks.
