We stayed at Lake Lanier but it was during the summer months. Great spot but unsure if it's open during the winter.

We are staying at Shoal Creek right now, they are open all year. You need to call them to determine which site works for your RV. They don't have sewer hookup but do have a dump station.

They are a little pricey for off season but we stay there because we are only 10 miles from our son's home.

There is a small herd of deer running around the area especially near site 56 and across the road from sites 1-9.

There is a new state park that opened near there this past summer called Don Carter State Park. I have not been there but it looks really nice.

I would not recommend Don Carter. I live in Gainesville and we were so excited to have a state park that would be open year round for camping right here in our own back yard. However, after touring the campground, I could have cried I was so dissapointed. Horrible sites, not level, no trees, hardly any space between the sites and not one site that is lake front. Looks like a really bad parking lot. Unfortunately for mid February you do not have a lot of choice around here. The corp parks are great but do not open until April. If you do not mind a little bit of a drive (30 mins or less) Fort Yargo state Park in Winder, GA is absolutely gorgeous. Great sites with lots of trees and room. Feel free to message me with any questions.

I could not agree more. I live outside of Athens, and we too were excited about the opening of Don Carter. As soon as it opened, we took a ride up to check out the campground. A big disappointment. Whoever designed it, well .......
