Don Carter is the newest state park in the Athens area, and it’s the first one on Lake Lanier. Located at the north end of a reservoir, the area is great if you want to go swimming, hiking, or fishing along sandy beaches. RV campers at this park have a separate gated area.
Don Carter State Park is one of the best Athens campgrounds in the area if you enjoy getting out on the water. Guests have access to all necessary amenities and are surrounded by natural wildlife and a beautiful lake with boat ramps and docks.
“Beautiful and peaceful! We camped here on several occasions and love it. The staff is friendly. The areas are kept clean. There are all kinds of wildlife to see and let’s not forget the lake. Camping you have a separate section than everyone else with a code to get in. This area has lake access, a playground/workout area, bathrooms, laundry, and plenty of walking area. We love Don Carter and we for sure will visit again soon!” – Amber, Google Review
