Dawsonville is a small village in Dawson County, Georgia in the north-central part of the state. As of the 2000 census, the population was 619 residents. Dawsonville is just ten miles northwest of Lake Lanier, a man-made reservoir that is one of the state's most popular recreational lakes. The town of Dawsonville is also only 10 miles south of Amicalola State Park. This state park contains the beautiful Amicalola Falls, which is the tallest cascading waterfall in the U.S., east of the Mississippi River. Millions of visitors come to Lake Lanier and Amicalola State Park each year, which makes tourism one of the leading industries of Dawsonville. Recreational activities in the area include fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hunting, hiking, horseback riding and camping. At 729 feet, Amicalola Falls is called one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Georgia. Amicalola Falls State Park also contains four different groups of hiking trails, one which leads to the top of the falls. Dawsonville offers several popular festivals each year. The Spring Fling is in May, a 2-day festival of local artists and crafts people in downtown Dawsonville, and the Mountain Moonshine Festival in October, which celebrates Dawson County's colorful history during the prohibition era.
