    Lula, Georgia

    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 multi-use trail welcomes 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 is gated, providing access to overnight guests. 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.

    Mansfield, Georgia

    This campground is located across the street from the graveyard up the road - not at the park itself. It is better suited to primitive camping.

    This campground is first come, first serve. It is $15 dollars a night. Some of the sites are waterfront. There is a bathroom with a shower that was kept up with and stocked with toilet paper and paper towels. There is also a water spigot near the bathroom and electrical outlets in the bathroom.

      This park is located at the intersection of Browns Bridge Road and Appalachee Church Road and was newly dedicated for the late Council member James Shackelford. Before its dedication and reopening, the park was renovated by Scout Troop 774. This park offers camping areas with shelters, and a beautiful nature trail that circles the park.

          Conyers, Georgia

          We’ve been told by many of our visitors that the Georgia International Horse Park is one of the best kept secrets that they have found with regard to RV parks east of Atlanta. The GIHP offers a full-service RV park for the convenience of our guests. Fully equipped with water, electric and sewer service, these 140+ sites are located near the Stable Complex and the Walker Arena Complex. Full-service shower facilities are also located within the RV Park and their use is included in the daily RV site rental fee. Guests planning to stay overnight in a RV for an event or show need to contact the event promoter directly for reservations. Individuals looking to overnight at the Horse Park, but not associated with a particular event, may contact our office directly. Due to limited capacity and show schedules, you must call in advance (770-860-4190) and reserve your space. Availability is determined by scheduled events. GIHP office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5 p.m. We look forward to your visit!
