In addition to more than 110 campsites, the 109-acre campground’s amenities include a beach and swim area, boat ramp with courtesy dock, group campsites with picnic shelters, playground, tent camping areas and campsites with water and 30 and 50 amp power hookups.

“During the past two camping seasons, our campsite rentals have continued to increase," said Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation Tommy Bruce.
Forsyth County completed a variety of improvements to Shady Grove Campground prior to the start of the 2011 camping season. These projects included expanded camping pads for larger recreational vehicles, a grassy play area and a shoreline restoration. These improvements were made possible by the Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond approved by voters in 2008.
Shady Grove Campground is located at 7800 Shadburn Ferry Road in Cumming on the
shores of Lake Lanier.
