Lake Rabun Beach Recreation Area & Campground
ALERT: Lake Rabun Beach Recreation Area is closed. We continue to monitor this ever-changing situation along with the U.S. Forest Service. Follow this link for a list of current closures.
Cradled in the hills of the North Georgia Mountains overlooking beautiful Lake Rabun, this developed recreation area offers camping, hiking, a multitude of water activities and an opportunity to just relax and absorb the peaceful lake scenery. There are 80 tent and trailer campsites in this family-oriented setting. Lake Rabun is an 835 acre stocked lake and a great place to spend time fishing for Bass, Bream, Perch, Trout and Catfish. While you’re here, be sure to make the invigorating hike to Angel Falls. You’ll be glad you did!
