    Red Top Mountain State Park

    11.24.21-11.28.21 Full hook-up site for Thanksgiving was the way to go! Red Top Mountain State Park is located in Acworth, GA on Lake Allatoona. The state park is 1776 acres with 15 miles of hiking trails. Named for its red soil, the park used to be an important mining area. Red Top Mountain State Park has 93 campsites, 1 yurt, 20 cottages, and 1 pioneer campground. The state park is in the middle of renovations projects and we were impressed with the work they have done so far. They removed the putt putt course and built a unique picnic area looking down over the beach. We have never used the…

    McKinney Campground – 34

    10.20.21-10.24.21 McKinney Campground COE is finally open, after two years of construction on their sewer system. Thank goodness, because this park is our go-to on Lake Allatoona. McKinney Campground is a Corps of Engineers park located on Lake Allatoona in Acworth, Georgia. It is in close proximity to highway 75 and a great option if you need to camp somewhat close to Atlanta. McKinney Campground is the only COE campground that is open year-round on Lake Allatoona.  The campground has 150 campsites with electric and water hookups. There are not any sites with sewer hookups. McKinney has two beaches, one playground, and a boat ramp. This campground is so popular…

    Cloudland Canyon State Park – 8

    10.01.21-10.03.21 Found our favorite site at Cloudland Canyon State Park, too bad it is already booked solid in the fall of 2022. Our first trip to Cloudland Canyon happened in 2017, the year we bought the camper. We stayed on site 40 in the West Rim and will continue to book West Rim because we prefer the more spread out and wooded campsites. East Rim is great for proximity to the main overlook. (See details/photos about our October 2017 stay at site 40 in Cloudland). Cloudland Canyon offers all types of overnight experiences with 16 cottages, 10 yurts, 72 camper/tent sites, and 30 walk-in sites. The cottages sit right between…

    Old Highway 41 No. 3 Campground

    09.03.21-09.06.21  We finally gave Old Highway 41 No. 3 campground in Cartersville, GA a chance and we are so glad we did!  Old Highway 41 No. 3 Campground is a Corps of Engineers campground on Lake Allatoona. Unfortunately it is only open May 13 – September 5 (Labor Day). The campground has 50 sites, many of them waterfront. There is a playground, boat ramp (no dock), and dump station.  The location of the campground is the big negative. The campground can be seen from interstate 75 and the traffic from the interstate can be heard through most of the campground. Fortunately, we were on the far side and did not…

    Duckett Mill Campground – 3

    06.08.21-06.11.21 Duckett Mill Campground is located in Gainesville, GA on Lake Lanier. It offers 97 sites with electric/water and 14 tent-only sites. The boat ramp is located just outside the campground gate. The campground does not have a playground; hopefully they will build one soon. The beach is located on the right when you drive into the campground. From our site we could hear people enjoying the beach—it seemed to have a lot more people than our previous visit. It’s difficult to book Duckett Mill Campground because the website doesn’t have site photos. I have been utilizing other peoples Facebook posts to keep track of sites that we would like.…
