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 grows in popularity every year,” Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation Tommy Bruce said. “During recent camping seasons, our campsite rentals have continued to increase. We are proud to offer such a great amenity here in Forsyth County.”

Shady Grove Campground is located at 7800 Shadburn Ferry Road in Cumming on the shores of Lake Lanier.
