Margaritaville at Lake Lanier Islands is gearing up for a busy summer season. With the new Parakeet Springs kids’ attraction and the addition of Full Moon Cruises, the park opened Memorial Day weekend for full-time operations.

Parakeet Springs splash pool, children’s area opened the end of May. The park has added monthly Full Moon Cruises with fireworks. Each on-the-water themed excursion includes a cash bar and heavy hors d’oeuvres.

“We’re very excited about having a really great season this year,” said Bucky Perry, vice president of operations at Margaritaville. “From lots of interest and bookings for our themed cruises and boat rentals to a full schedule of events, this is going to be another amazing summer at Margaritaville.”

Landshark Landing is open seven days a week and offers a full menu of appetizers, seafood, burgers, fish tacos, meal-sized salads and sandwiches. Specialty desserts include sea-salt caramel cheesecake and key lime pie. Beachgoers can enjoy a variety of lighter fare in the Chill Zone restaurants and bars, ranging from Paradise Cantina’s tacos and burritos to Frank and Lola’s Pizzeria, and L2C Grill with gourmet hot dogs, burgers and fries.

Camp Margaritaville RV Park is already seeing good reservations for the season. “We’re in the planning stages to break ground for several new features in the next few months, including a pool and pavilion, as well as pickleball courts,” Perry said. “We hope to have these completed by the fall.”
