About Bolding Mill

Bolding Mill Campground is an excellent choice for camping on Lake Sidney Lanier, offering plenty of comfortable amenities in addition to a well-kept facility.

Visitors will enjoy fishing and boating on the lake as well as the lush picnic area and large swimming beach, perfect for families.


The large swimming beach is concrete, which provides a gentle slope and ADA access for visitors. An on-site boat ramp and fishing pier provide access to many water activities. Land-based recreation features picnic shelters and playground area near the front of the park.


The campground offers 88 sites with electric and water hookups (no sewer). There's also nine tent-only primitive sites. Campground conveniences include a laundry facility, fishing pier, and restroom/showerhouses. Facilities outside of the campground but within Bolding Mill park include the playground, swim beach and boat ramp. There's also two dump stations, inside and outside the campground which rotate use per year.

Natural Features

Lake Lanier spans 38,000 surface water acres and 17,000 land acres across five counties in northern Georgia. The reservoir is known for its aqua-blue coloring and spectacular scenery in the forested foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Bolding Mill campground is on the northwest side of the lake, which has plenty of grass and shade for comfortable camping.

Nearby Attractions

Head to the Don Carter State Park for birding and hiking opportunities. Another idea is the Sawnee Mountain Preserve, with breathtaking scenic overlooks, hiking opportunities and rock climbing. Nearby Gainesville, Dawsonville and Dalonega provide many different experiences and opportunities.

Great waterfront sites

Loved our stay at Bolding Mill Campground. Our site had an amazing view of the lake and was easy to get into. More details and photos linked.

Another Gem

Another gem on Lake Lanier with great views and good fishing. COE Campground. Easy access. Great host, very helpful and very polite. Another great adventure.

Love this place

Quiet, well maintained, have stayed several time. Bath houses are a bit dated but clean. Camp hosts are friendly atleast the ones I have spike with. Campground is on lake Lanier with many sites with lake views. Great place.

Beautiful campground

Almost all the campsites are on lake lanier some are heavily wooded beautiful views and nice lake breezes only ptoblem I saw was there are only 2 bathroom sites so choose campsite accordingly

Great Lake Campsites

This quiet campground is ten minutes from town. Most sites are on the water, tho the water is not easily accessible from the sites. The views are fabulous. There's a boat landing. The playground is crummy. Bathhouses fine! There are several spots to get down and into the lake for a swim. Very well maintained. Most sites are secluded from neighbor. Several pull thrus. Deer and egrets and bluebirds.
