Overview

Overview

Van Pugh South Campground lies on the banks of Lake Sidney Lanier in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Georgia.

The popular lake boasts nearly 700 miles of shoreline and over 100 small islands, providing visitors with limitless recreation opportunities.

Natural Features:

The reservoir was created in 1956 with the completion of Buford Dam on the Chattahoochee River, and today spans 38,000 acres in the lush foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Dense forests of oak, hickory and pine cover the region, providing shade in the campground and abundant wildlife habitat.

Recreation:

Lake Lanier offers excellent boating and swimming. Anglers fish for varieties of bass, sunfish, catfish and perch.

Facilities:

The campground contains 37 sites with water and electric hookups and 18 primitive tent-only sites. Amenities include accessible flush toilets and showers, drinking water, laundry facilities and a dump station. An accessible boat ramp is on-site.
