Not bad for Lake Lanier

This is not my favorite lake in GA, but the campground was nice. Sites are spread apart, bathrooms were clean. Our site didn’t have the best water access, but a good view.

Beautiful lake front spot

Amazing lake front views. Great for paddle boarding/kayaking.

We stayed here 2 nights and loved it. Park has bathrooms, showers, and laundry. The site has lovely views, hookups, grill, fire pit, and picnic table.

Holy smokes this site was excellent

Had a great stay at Van Pugh South in site 35. The site was located on the lake with gorgeous views. The pad itself was mostly concrete and had a slight tilt towards the waters edge but nothing too bad that couldn’t be fixed with a minor adjustment. We chose not to bother.

The camp sites are…

  • google maps of site 35 location
  • site 35
  • barely enough room for TV and 25ft trailer but we did it
