They are getting ready to drop the lake level to winter pool. Usually the one(s) closest to the dam are the only ones open. Lake Allatoona is the same way. All but McKinny Campground on Lake Allatoona are closed effective the 1st week in September.

We have never been to Shoal Creek Campground. We do live in Forsyth County not far from Lake Lanier. Forsyth County has a campground that has 50 amp service. It is Shady Grove Campground. The phone number is 770.205.6849. $28 a night for 50 amp service.

We have not camped there yet, but have been out there to look at the campsites. They are right on the lake and beautiful. Here is a link.

Now I find that hard to believe unless you are looking at full hook up. Was by there yesterday and lots of sites left that may not be full hook ups. Later RJD

We used to stay at Shoal creek twice a year before the COE sold it to Lake Lanier Islands. They doubled the rates but didn't add much to it. It was a nice camp ground when we stayed there. There are a number of other camp grounds around the lake. Some are private and there is a new state camp ground on the North west side of the lake that we want to try out.

I'm bummed, apparently its in high demand. Staying much further away just is not the right decision for a wedding.

Shoal Creek has tiny pads that are all sliding down hills and cracked from erosion. We drove through last summer to see if our 30DS would fit, barely. The reviews are bad too, facilities mostly.

Twin Lakes CG is close but probably not worth staying at since theres really nothing to see there.

Well if the phone coverage was any indication of how the facility is staffed or maintained then I would not have expected much. Unfortunately- were flying. total trip cost is over 2k...thats a lot of diesel money

If you are referring to Don Carter State Park, do not go there unless you bring a lot of wood for leveling. Went one time right after it opened and was very disappointed in sites being a new campground. I did call park ranger and complain. Sites are too short or "dome" shaped for the larger units. We have not been back.
