Leitner Lake Rec Area, Fort Gordon, GA

leitner-01Leitner Lake Recreation Area is located on Fort Gordon, GA, not too far from Augusta. It features a very nice small campground with full hookups, showers and laundry facilities. It’s only drawback is its rather remote location from the Main Post – about 6 miles or so.
leitner-02The park does not take reservations, but I had called the day before our arrival to check availability and learned there were two sites available that day. We got an early start the next morning, arriving at Fort Gordon about 1100. We first went to the Outdoor Recreation office where we found there were four sites open. We paid our camp fees and headed out to the campground. As luck would have it, one of the best sites was available right beside the lake, number 8.
