The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages the shoreline of Lake Lanier to preserve and protect the lake’s environment and at the same time provides a balanced use of the lakeshore.  The corps operates 46 parks around the lake for boat launching, picnics, hiking and swimming.

Located just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of city life in Atlanta, Lake Lanier is the perfect destination for life outside the city without going too far.  The Mall of Georgia is the largest shopping center in the southeast and is only 10 minutes from the south end of the lake.
