The Lincoln County (Ga.) Board of Commissioners gave Chairman Wade Johnson approval to pursue leasing the 138-acre Cherokee Day Use Area from the United States Army Corps of Engineers for 10 years for development purposes, according to The Lincoln Journal, Lincolnton, Ga.
The 10-year plan cited by the chairman at the board’s April 9 meeting included improvements such as developing roads and running electrical lines for campsites; building bath houses, campsites and a fishing pier; and constructing a walking trail.
The facility currently features five boat ramps, a couple of pavilions and two beaches.
“It would be a wonderful thing for Lincoln County,” stated the chairman. “Initially, we just might maintain it.”
The area borders the Savannah River which forms the eastern border of the state with South Carolina.
