Don Carter is Georgia’s newest state park, as well as the first state park on 38,000 acre Lake Lanier. Situated on the north end of the reservoir, the park offers outstanding recreation for water lovers. Guests can stay cool at a large, sand swimming beach with bath house. Boat ramps provide quick access to the lake, while a multi-use trail welcomes hikers and bikers to explore the hardwood forest.

This short hike takes you 0.3 miles in to Walkin Campsite #6 where we camped for the night. Three are 7 walkin campsites on this section of trail and all are within a short 10 minute walk to the beach area on Lake Lanier where there are restrooms. There are also a number of other hiking trails in the park that are worth checking out.
