I recently went to a wedding and a family reunion here. It's a huge lake (largest in GA) and there is really something for everyone. About 10 of us rented a pontoon boat and took it out for a nice ride! There are companies right there that you can rent from (the driver has to sit through a 45 min... More

We spent the day here and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The water park is just large enough with attractions that appealed to everyone in the family from the adults to the seven year old. There is a lake/beach area with plenty of chairs. Its extra to rent an umbrella but you could bring your own. The wave pool is large and... More

The water park is in the hills of North Ga. Be ready for a lot of up and down while visiting. The beach was a let down. Not much of a swim area. There were so many people in the small area for swimming we could not hardly move. The beach that my young son was playing in had cigarette... More

While boating on Lake Lanier we came across Lanierland Waterpark, they have the market covered on the lake. Live Music, Waterslides, a Beach with lifeguards and a Bar for the adults to enjoy.

My family and I visited the beach and waterpark on 7/7/14. The cost of admission was half price because we brought toys for Toys 4 Tots as part of a promotion that the park was running. When we first arrived some of the slides were closed for repairs, but there were enough open to keep the kids busy. We set... More

My family and I came from the Bahamas on vacation to meet up with some other relatives that drove from North Carolina to be met with disappointed and an EXTREMELY rude staff. One in particular, a young man named Kenneth that was very condescending and disrespectful. We were told that for what we paid the only thing we could not... More

Lanier is a great waterpark in general; the slides are fun and it is located on a beach. However, the slides are in need of an upgrade. The park needs to clean up the rides and add some new rides. The park is really expensive. Would I go back? Perhaps. But the park is in need of a major upgrade.... More
