Van Pugh North Park is located off Gaines Ferry Road and is a fee park. This park is a popular park, especially on summer weekends when many use the facilities for barbecues and parties. Amenities include: a boat ramp, many picnic tables and grills scattered throughout the park, playgrounds, a reservable picnic pavilion (call 770-945-9531), a sheltered grill area next to the pavilion, a designated swim area and beach, and gorgeous views. No pets are allowed in this park.
Van Pugh South Campground offers 55 delightful camping sites. Water and electric hookups are available at 37 sites.
There are 18 “primitive” tent-only spots. (Primitive in this case meaning you must walk more than 20 feet for pure water, showers and laundry facilities, as compared to being in the wilderness where it’s you against vicious lions, tigers, bears and strangers playing banjos.)
Van Pugh South Campground is open through Labor Day weekend 2012.
The campground is expected to reopen next year from March 6 through November 23, 2013.
Fees range from $22-32 per night (subject to change)
