Natural Features:

Lake Lanier spans 38,000 acres and five counties in northern Georgia. The reservoir is known for its aqua-blue coloring and spectacular scenery in the forested foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Bolding Mill campground is on the northwest side of the lake, which has plenty of grass and shade for comfortable camping.


The large swimming beach is a very popular spot to lay out and cool off during summer months.

An on-site boat ramp provides easy access to the lake for campers looking to spend a day on the water.

Bolding Mill is also connected to hiking trails for plenty of opportunities to enjoy the scenery and bird watch.


The campground offers 88 sites with electric and water hookups. There's also nine tent-only sites. Campground conveniences include a laundry facility, playground, hot showers and a swimming beach.
