West Bank Park and Sawnee Campground in Cumming will be closed over Memorial Day weekend, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

West Bank Park has been closed due to heavy rains and floods earlier this spring. Its reopening date has not been announced yet.

Sawnee Campground has been closed due to limited staffing and volunteers. The campground will reopen June 13.

Both parks will be closed to public access from both land and water.

“The safety of all visitors to Lake Lanier is our priority,” Chief Ranger Chris Arthur said in a statement. “We have many other Day Use areas still available for recreation and encourage everyone to practice good water safety at all times.”
