Overview

Overview

Raysville Campground is located on Georgia's Little River section of J. Strom Thurmond Lake, the largest Corps of Engineers lake project east of the Mississippi River. The 70,000 acre lake and its 1,000+ miles of shoreline provide excellent boating, water skiing, swimming, fishing, hiking and picnicking.

Natural Features:

Hot, humid summers and mild, pleasant winters characterize this heavily wooded area on the shore of Thurmond Lake. A mixed pine and hardwood forest covers the site, providing summer shade and fall color.

Wildlife is abundant around the lake. Visitors regularly see southern bald eagles, migratory waterfowl, wild turkeys and whitetail deer.

Recreation:

Thurmond Lake provides some of the best fishing, hunting, and water sports in the southeastern US. Anglers fish for largemouth bass, bream, crappie, catfish and striped bass. The large lake offers endless boating, water skiing, jet skiing, canoeing and swimming opportunities.

A local boat club sponsors annual Fourth of July fireworks at Amity, and Raysville offers some of the best seats in the area to watch the show.

This wooded, waterfront campground contains 54 sites, all with electrical hookups. Amenities include flush and vault toilets, showers, drinking water, a dump station and boat ramp.

Within a mile is the Amity Recreation Area, with numerous beaches, picnic shelters and a ball field.

Numerous parks and recreation areas lie around Thurmond Lake, providing additional boating, swimming, hunting, and hiking opportunities. Nearby cities house museums, art galleries, zoos, restaurants, and shopping areas.
