Nice, except for the wait

We got there relatively early (6:30pm) but still had about 1/2 wait in line before getting to the gate to pay. There were about 5 different lanes for cashier at the gates, all... read more

Loved this area of Georgia! One of my favorite days rented a pontoon boat for the day, fairly inexpensive also. Many coves and inlets, a few bars/ restaurants on the lake. Many small island to dock near and swim. The water was clean but mostly and probably the family favorite was the sand. There is pyrite in the sand and... More

I am very disappointed!All I wanted for Christmas was to take my husband and child to see the lights at lake Lanier. I use to love going when I was a child and wanted to start taking my child every year. But I'm afraid that want happen. There not that many lights anymore to pay $45 dollars and drive from... More

We got there relatively early (6:30pm) but still had about 1/2 wait in line before getting to the gate to pay. There were about 5 different lanes for cashier at the gates, all merging into ONE lane to see the lights. There is a radio station with holiday music you can listen to while looking at all the lights. That... More

We were very disappointed in the amount of Christmas lights for the terribly high price per car admission. The lights that are here are very well done and pretty, but wow for the price there should be a great many more displays. It may take 7 miles to drive this but it is not a drive of all lights by...

The teenagers acted like kids. We all smiled and enjoyed the light show. I recommend anyone in the area to take time to visit and enjoy the light show.

The Legacy Lodge was a great place to spend the weekend. I was visiting for a family wedding. Food was tasty. Saturday morning buffet was all you could eat for $16. The Bar and Grill on first floor was cozy. Their Betty's Salad was delicious. My room had two queen beds with a balcony. Chairs on balcony to sit and... More

First time here. We recently moved to GA from CO and wanted a little family break after moving. There was a package deal, that you get a villa for one night and tickets, including fast pass, to Lanier World Water park, breakfast included. Initially we were excited. Its a beautiful area but completely exclusive. There's a gate you have to... More

Rundown campsites, falling down around you. Electrical hookups are in ill repair. Grills rusted out, campsites are rough gravel. Had to dig the water faucet out of the dirt. Won't be back!
