Dockery Lake, Suches, GA

 Dockery Lake Recreation Area


Dockery Lake is possibly our favorite car camping spot in Georgia. If you want to get away and spend some time in a serene environment, this is the place for you.  The small 3-acre lake is stocked with trout seasonally and I have personally seen some old timers swimming about.

The lakeside campsites are large and spread out enough for moderate privacy. This is campsite #9 and it is one of our favorites.


There are plenty of trees to hang your hammock from.
