if not Lanier Islands we like Sawnee park heres link to all the parks lakelaniermaps.com/Lake_Lanier_Parks_Map.html

They have 2 swimming areas--one where you come in which is pretty big and near bathrooms and one a little walk into the park-From atlanta take 400 to exit 14 and take 20 east drive several miles until you pass over the chatahoochie, then make a left at the big texaco station on thje left.Take it to Buford dam rd, make a left--the park is the 2nd park on the right after you go over the dam.ill look up the name of the first road you turn onto from 20
