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.
